Cardi B doesn’t believe all the hype surrounding coronavirus, and even thinks some people are getting paid to lie about the disease.

Patron saint of coronavirus and creator of viral COVID-19 content Cardi B took to Instagram live this weekend to rant about everything she has learnt about China’s response to coronavirus. Leaning into conspiracy theories, she believes that the American government isn’t doing enough.

“Y’all seen that Wuhan, China right now, the coronavirus cases is going lower. But that’s because when they quarantined people, they were spraying shit in the streets,” she explained. “They were knocking on each door, taking people’s temperature and everybody that had the coronavirus, they were like doing strict quarantine on them.”

“While we’re quarantining at home, what is the government doing? Is y’all spraying shit in the streets? Is y’all gonna start taking our temperatures?” she added. “How am I supposed to know I have the coronavirus?”

She then turned her attention to some NBA players who have said they have coronavirus but aren’t showing any symptoms. “[The government] not really saying what it is. Tell me what it is and what it ain’t. I’m starting to feel like y’all is paying [people] to say that they got it. If y’all are… pay me too.”

During another part of the IG Live session, she said, “I wanna expose [people] so much. But I don’t wanna say anything. You know why I ain’t gonna expose nobody? Because I don’t know when I’m gonna get sick. And if I get sick and I be talkin’ my shit, you know motherfuckers are gonna be like, ‘Ain’t this the bitch that was talkin’ shit.’”

In recent Cardi news, the rapper has made demands to the pentagon to release hidden information about COVID-19. You can read the full story here, and watch the video alongside it.
