WAP rapper Cardi B gave her opinion about the Russia-Ukraine crisis, but worries she “might get killed” for voicing it.
“Wish these world leaders stop tripping about power and really think about whose really getting affected (citizens) besides the whole world is in a crisis,” Cardi B tweeted. “War, sanctions, invasions should be the last thing these leaders should worry about.”
The post was a response to a fan asking for the 29-year-old’s thoughts on the White House’s declaration of “swift and severe” sanctions for Russia’s “invasion” of Ukraine on Tuesday.
The rapper posted a follow-up video explaining that she stands on the side of the citizens’ side of the conflict. “I’m really not on NATO’s side,” she continued. “I’m really not [on] Russia’s side. I’m actually in [sic] the citizens’ side, because at the end of the day, the world is having a crisis right now.”

The I Like It songstress wants world leaders to be focused on post-pandemic problems rather than power struggles.“This inflation’s not only in America, but everywhere in the world, it’s really hard to get the economy back up,” she continued.
“There are so much shipments and embarkments backed up. China’s not really messing with us, so a lot of things are behind, a lot of goods are behind. And this s–t just made it way more complicated.”
The Bodak Yellow rapper clearly had more thoughts on the subject, but said she worried for her safety if she shared all of opinions.
“I actually want to say a lot of things, but I’m just gonna mind my business because sometimes I feel like I have such a big platform that if I don’t say the right things, I might get killed,” Cardi sighed.
She concluded that she’s “really getting annoyed” by the situation, and wishes that all world leaders can “come with a logical conclusion” to avert the crisis.
