Cardi B Made An Apology To Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s Wife After Old Video Of Her Poking Fun At Her Surfaces

You can call her Spicy Mami, and Hot Tamale but you cannot call her Coretta Scott King. “I Like It” rapper Belcalis Almanzar is being forced to provide answers and apologies after a recent video of her spoofing the Civil Rights Leader has surfaced.

On Tuesday, video of Cardi B (that’s pre-teeth-fixing) portraying Coretta Scott King, the wife of the late Civil Rights icon Martin Luther King Jr. sparked a blaze on the internet.

The skit, which surfaced on the same day of King’s 1963 “I Have A Dream” speech anniversary, has pushed the Dominicana, who has built a reputation for being pretty unapologetic to make some major mea culpas. In the video, the rapper and former “Love & Hip Hop: New York” cast member jokes about King’s efforts and contributions to the 1960s Civil Rights movement along with other actors who play Rosa Parks and the wives of activists such as Malcolm X and Jesse King. During the clip, Cardi and the other actress also reference King’s alleged infidelities.

“All these hussies want to sleep with my husband, but it’s alright cause I know he marches home to me,” Cardi says at one point in the video in response to another actress calling the civil rights leader a “ho.”

According to TMZ, Cardi shot the video three years ago when she was attempting to be an Instagram comedian and was working with “Wild ‘N Out” star Rip Micheals.

In response to the video leaks, Cardi has reportedly issued a private apology to King’s daughter.

On Tuesday, Coretta Scott King’s daughter Bernice King thanked the rapper in a tweet for apologizing to her for her role in the video which both she and her brother have ridiculed as offensive. Headlines for the videos, which credit them to “Wild ‘N Out” star Rip Michaels’ new show, “Off the Rip.” imply that the videos are recent. However, a clear tell that the video was likely taped a few years ago is Cardi B’s feet, which he had fixed in 2016. The second video released by the celebrity gossip site includes jokes about Mexicans, Haitians, and Puerto Ricans that have fans of Cardi B feeling a bit torn.

Check out the video here.

Various fans of Cardi have spoken up about the video, including community organizer Rosa Clemente.

Puerto Rican community organizer, Rosa Clemente commended the rapper for speaking up about the video and apologizing as soon as it surfaced.

Some have defended the Latina saying that she was only playing a role.

Others have pointed out that just because you’re in on an offensive joke that wasn’t written by you it’s still not okay.

For the most part, fans of the rapper are just relieved she’s taking ownership.

This Quietly Posted IMDB Page Could Mean ‘Coco 2’

To say our worlds were rocked when Pixar finally gave us a touching film about la cultura a few years ago would be the biggest understatement of the century. ‘Coco,’ the 2017 American 3D computer-animated fantasy starring Gael García Bernal and Benjamin Bratt filled our hearts and also brought us to tears. Still, as satisfying as the film was, there’s no doubt it left us craving more. And it looks like we might just get it.

An IMDB page for Coco 2 has been created and I’m sorry but I can’t stop freaking out!!

According to IMDB user anthandsoc-95189 who appears to have long had the inside scoop on upcoming films, ‘Coco 2: Return To the Land Of the Living’ is in the works! Some digging around has also revealed that another sight might have information on the plot and characters of the sequel film. Of course, this information has yet to be confirmed and might be purely a wish, but if it is we’ll dream big!

According to IMDB ‘Coco 2’ will take place 6 years after the first film

The IMDB page says “It’s been 6 years since the events happened for Miguel. But when Hector, Imelda, and his great grand-abuelos need Miguel’s help to come back to the Land of the Living because some mysterious sinister masked skeleton is haunting and rules their world with an iron fist and sword and hates music.”

Which means, if IMDB is correct, we haven’t seen the last of Mama Coco!

Sweet Coco could have a really big role in the new film!!

Of course, other sites have other insights into the could-be sequel…

Because of course everyone has an opinion!

According to Fandom.com ‘Coco 2’ will take place six years after the first film.

We’ll see Miguel’s family attempt to throw him a fiesta, but sadly Miguel, still upset about Mama Coco’s death, will be upset.

When Miguel meets a sophisticated, ghostly and well-bred skeletal spirit Miguel will attempt to return to The Land Of The Dead for a vacation.

Now that’s an insane idea for a spring break.

In this version of the sequel, Miguel will a dark black hole to go back to The Land Of The Dead, to see Papa Hector and Mamma Imelda.

Of course, Miguel will be astonished when he sees his old family members for another time and finally gets to see Mama Coco.

Soon enough, Miguel is racing against time, once again, to avoid being a skeleton.

But this time, Marcel might not be so bothered by the idea of living amongst the dead for forever.

Of course, all of this is speculative. Who knows if Pixar has plans for a sequel in the works, but as one fan points out this clip by Pixar on the DVD release has some great hints!

“I had to go ‘oh yeah, you wanna fuck me? Yeah yeah yeah let’s go to this hotel.’ And then I’d drug [expletivie] up and I’d rob them. That’s what I used to do.”

Users online were quick to comment.

“The fact that cardi b admitted to drugging and robbing men she would take back to a hotel for sex blows my mind,” wrote Twitter user @itsangelaa. “That’s not ‘keeping it real.’ that’s a crime.”
