WASHINGTON (CIRCA) — In the age of politically active celebrities, no one should be shocked that many stars have had some strong words about the government shutdown. The viral opinion of the moment belongs to Cardi B.
The rapper posted a colorful, expletive-laden Instagram video expressing her concern about the situation and quickly went viral.
"Our country is in a hellhole right now," She says. "All for a [expletive] wall."
Cardi says she feels like she needs to take action but isn't sure what to do. The Instagram video seems like a successful first step considering it even got the attention of some Democrats.
