Cardi B put haters on blast after seeing a racist comment saying Hermés Birkin bags "literally lost their value" because Black female rappers wear them.
A social media post started circulating that claimed the expensive Birkin bags (which typically range anywhere from $12,000 to $200,000) have "literally lost their value" because female Black rappers make them "easy to get" and less "exclusive." So Cardi B jumped on Instagram to share an important message about racism that Black women still face when it comes to the luxury fashion market.
"I've been seeing this tweet right. It had me and it had other female rappers on it. They were talking about if we could get Birkins from the Hermés store and they [were] also saying how we depreciate the value of a Hermés Birkin bag. I find that really interesting because, first thing first, I definitely could get a bag. Actually, I got four bags today from the Hermés store," the "WAP" rapper, 28, said in the video shared on Instagram.
