In the image, Cardi B is seen with eight arms and is posing in the typical position of the Hindu goddess Durga, who is known for strength, protection, and war, and typically depicted as having eight or 10 arms.
The 28-year-old, who is Catholic, explained: “When I did the Reebok shoot, the creative told me I’d be a goddess that represents strength, femininity, and liberation, and that is something I love, that I’m all about and I thought it was dope. If people think I offended their culture or religion, I want to say I’m sorry; that was not my intent. I do not like disrespecting people’s religion. I would not like it if anyone disrespected my religion, with people dressed as the Virgin Mary or Jesus, as long as they do it in a beautiful and graceful way I don’t feel a certain type of way. I wasn’t trying to be disrespectful, maybe I should have done my research.”
She added in the caption: “Sorry guys I didn’t mean to offend or disrespect anybody’s culture. I can’t change the passed [sic] but I’ll be more cautious for the future.”
