On Saturday (May 28), the rapper posted a video to Twitter with the caption: “I can’t believe I’m actually watching a yacht sink”.
Over the 45-second clip, a shocked Cardi can be heard saying: “What the fuck? Oh my, it’s sinking. Y’all see this? Oh my God, they can’t do nothing? There ain’t no big boat that could save it?”
As the final parts of the yacht disappear the ‘WAP’ star says: “It’s gone… it’s gone. Bye bye.”

Imagine watching your multi-million dollar yacht sink as you tread water away from it and from the fucking shoreline you hear Cardi B's voice screaming "ITS SINKING OH MY GOD".

“I don’t really put a lot of political things in my music, but I used the fuck out of my platform,” Cardi told Letterman in a clip from the new episode. “And I have used my platform even when I was a dancer. Because you might think that people are not looking, but they are.
“I mean, I’m a hood chick, and I’m from the Bronx,” Cardi went on. “A lot of people relate to me and follow me because they want to see how I’m dressed, they want to see my lifestyle.
“I feel like I have a responsibility to also share to them like, ‘Hey, while you here and you’re checking my outfit and checking my music, check out what’s going on over here in this part of the world.'”
