Cardi B apologizes for offending Hindus with new Reebok ad

Cardi B has been called out for appropriating Hindu culture in a new campaign for Reebok.

She responded in an Instagram video: “The creatives [told] me, ‘You’re gonna represent a goddess,’ that she represents strength, femininity and liberation … and I thought that was dope. But if people feel that I’m offending their culture or their religion, I want to say I’m sorry. That was not my intent.”

The rapper depicted the goddess Durga — holding a sneaker. Shoes are not allowed in Hindu temples.

“Maybe I should’ve done my research,” she said.
