The 28-year-old rapper sparked controversy on Twitter when she told her fans she held a nearly 40 person gathering on Sunday morning (Nov 29).

Just before Thanksgiving, health officials had stated that Americans are not permitted to hold huge parties due to the holiday potentially causing an influx of cases of the virus. 

When a fan called Cardi out for irresponsibly hosting a huge gathering during the pandemic, Cardi apologised saying:  'Sorry my bad' on Twitter.

The apology seemed to be halfhearted though as she later went on to say that people were 'trying tooo hard to be offended.'

However, the "Money" hitmaker went on to write: 'People be trying tooo hard to be offended.I wonder how they survive the real world' followed by a laughing/crying emoji.

One fan took to Twitter and called out Cardi's choice to let her fans know how many people were in attendance.

The Twitter user wrot,e 'So what actually was the purpose of specifying the amount of people at your gathering...Knowing that a lot of people couldn't even be with their families.'

'All you could've said was you had a good holiday with your people...and I'm not even one to troll, but read the room.' 

Another fan tweeted: 'I can promise you it’s not worth it to everyone else who is affected by your poor choices aka the healthcare workers who you will run to when you’re sick.'
