Cardi B Claims Racism After Being Kicked Out of Hotel Room in New York
Cardi B is making racism accusations after she was booted from her hotel room, early Sunday morning (Oct. 22).
The incident went down at the Hilton Albany in Albany, N.Y. According to TMZ, the hotel staff started getting complaints about noise and the smell of weed coming from the "Bodak Yellow" rapper's room. The police were called and Cardi's crew were asked to leave. Exactly where the weed smell was coming from was up for debate, with the report saying there was no evidence that the weed smell was coming from the room Cardi was in. Either way, she was escorted out.
In video of her departure, the Bronx MC can be heard yelling out, "Racist motherfuckers." No arrests were made and the Albany PD is denying any claims of racism.
Cardi later vented about the situation on Instagram in a series of videos. "You wanna know something. Albany is known for being racist," she started. "Every single time niggas from New York get locked up and get sent upstate, they are always complaining about COs beating them. I really experienced that shit yesterday."
She added, "I do not smoke weed. And none of my team members smoke weed. If they wanted to kick us out for something else, alright. But for weed, I'm not taking that. 'Cause I do not smoke."
This wasn't the only bit of drama last night for Cardi who appeared to break up and make up with her boyfriend, Offset.
XXL has reached out to the Hilton Albany for comment. They do not have a statement on the matter at this time.
