CARDI B has been slammed for throwing a "lit" Thanksgiving party for almost 40 people.
The WAP rapper, 28, was branded "selfish" and irresponsible" after announcing that she had "12 kids and 25 adults" at her house.
Cardi tweeted on Sunday: "There were 12 kids and 25 adults over the holidays it was lit!!"
She apologized after facing an onslaught of criticism for holding a large gathering amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The rapper posted: "Sorry my bad wasn’t trying to make nobody feel bad.
"I just had my family in my home for the first time and it felt so good and uplifted me. I spent soo much money getting every1 tested but it felt worth it.I wasnt trying to offend no1 [sic]."
She added that she and her staff get tested "literally four times a week".
"ME specially and everyone that works around me get tested literally 4 times a week. In the middle of work and Everytime we clock in we MUST GET TESTED! [sic]" Cardi posted.
The Bodak Yellow – who was recently called out for cultural appropriation – rapper then tweeted: "People be trying tooo hard to be offended."
She added: "I wonder how they survive the real world."
Cardi's critics called her out for "bragging" about the gathering and setting a "bad example" to her younger fans.
"Being rich enough to blow a ton of money on rapid testing and a large, ill-advised party is not 'the real world,'" one raged.
Another fumed: "Bragging about your large gathering during a pandemic to your millions of impressionable fans who do not have the money that you have to get rapid tests is irresponsible."
A third wrote: "It’s pure selfishness…we’re in pandemic cause of selfish people…"
It comes one month after Kim Kardashian was branded "tone-deaf" for flying her closest friends and family to Tahiti for her 40th birthday.
Kim called her birthday experience "normal", which has been deemed majorly out of touch.
While sharing photos of the lavish celebrations, she had posted: "After 2 weeks of multiple health screens and asking everyone to quarantine, I surprised my closest inner circle with a trip to a private island where we could pretend things were normal just for a brief moment in time.
"We danced, rode bikes, swam near whales, kayaked, watched a movie on the beach and so much more."
Just weeks later, Kendall Jenner was called out for having 100 guests at her 25th birthday party, where many of the revelers didn't wear masks.
