On Friday (12 June), the 'Chandelier' singer responded to a fan's tweet - which has now been deleted - asking whether Sia would ever collaborate with the 'TROLLZ' rapper.
Sia, 44, responded, "I love @iamcardib and although this isn't a collaboration, I would love to COLLAB with her any day," tagging the 'Bodak Yellow' rapper in her tweet.
The singer was slammed online after the tweet was posted, with #SiaIsOverParty soon trending on Twitter. She later apologised for making a "buffoon" out of herself.
"I totally misunderstood a tweet earlier that has resulted in me making a buffoon out of myself. Sorry @NICKIMINAJ and @iamcardib if you hear about it. Can I just like you both?" she wrote.
According to E! News, Sia posted-and-deleted a series of tweets before issuing her apology in response to fans bringing up Cardi and Nicki's infamous feud.
"I don't give a sh** about feuds," one of her tweets read. "George Floyd was f**king murdered. Breonna Taylor. Murdered. Come on let's rise in unity. You think @iamcardib and Nikki [sic] are so petty that they would want you focusing on a silly feud instead of REAL NEWS."
She added in another tweet, "Hey @iamcardib @NICKIMINAJ you aren't thinking about a feud right now are you? We are focused on the problem of systemic racism."
Both Nicki and Cardi are yet to respond to Sia's comments.
