Cardi B has been in big trouble lately. After admitting that she had previously drugged and raped men, many people jumped to attack her, criticizing her behavior and even trying to boycott her work in the future.
Moreover, while most seem to agree that there is hardly any excuse for the actions she had admitted to, it looks like some of her colleagues still insist on defending her.
A notable recent example came from Rick Ross, who merely stated that people should not persecute Cardi B for her past.
He added that people “need to be leaders and lead by example.”
His message ended with the statement that someone with a bad past should not be deprived of good opportunities in their future.
His Instagram Live message contained: “Leave Cardi B alone because we don’t need to persecute her for her past. We need to be leaders and lead by example. Regardless of what you did in your past, if you stole a car in the past, that don’t mean you shouldn’t be able to get money in the future. As long as you change your ways, and we all know Cardi B focused on the money now. She is a leader, and that’s how I feel.”
Many have criticized Ross, pointing out that judging people for their past mistakes is the very foundation of the legal system.
Some have even mocked his claims that Cardi B’s crimes should be ignored just because “they’re in the past.”
Ross has not offered any further comments on the situation, nor has he responded to the criticisms towards his statements.
Others have pointed out that it is not surprising to see Ross of all people defending Cardi B.
Ross had been previously involved in a sexual assault scandal himself after he released a song which appeared to defend the idea of date rape.
Back then, the song caused a huge controversy, and it looks like Ross has not exactly gotten the message from that incident.
When it comes to his backlash, he added: “My circumstances and my incidents, where I did lose a seven-figure deal with Reebok, and I took that to the chin. I have no love lost for Reebok, you understand, because I needed to understand that I was a king, you understand, and they’re right I didn’t need to promote that the parties I attended at the time from I’m from that was the lifestyle.”
Did Ross miss an opportunity not to open it?
