Cardi B responds to Carole Baskin's concerns

Cardi B has responded after Carole Baskin expressed her concern over the use of big cats in her WAP music video.

The CEO of Big Cat Rescue fears the video, 'glamorises the idea of rich people having tigers as pets.'

And Cardi thinks this is absolutely, 'ridiculous.'

The music video in question is for Cardi's song WAP featuring Megan Thee Stallion.

In the clip, Cardi and Megan make their entrance down a colourful hallway as they rap to the camera.

The pair look through doors leading off the hallway, and behind one of them are three tigers.

Carole's concerns

Speaking on this, Carole told Billboard, 'I was happy to see that it does appear to all be photoshopped.'

'It didn't look like the cats were really in the rooms with the singers.'

'In fact, probably most of the rooms were Photoshopped in via green screen.'

She added, 'That being said, you have to pose a wildcat in front of a green screen to get that image and that doesn't happen in the wild.'

'It can't happen in sanctuaries like ours where cats have plenty of room to avoid a green screen (or would shred it if offered access and could die from ingesting it).'

'That tells me they probably dealt with one of the big cat pimps, who makes a living from beating, shocking and starving cats to make them stand on cue in front of a green screen in a studio. That's never good for the cat.'

Carole added, 'The worst part is that it glamorises the idea of rich people having tigers as pets.'

'That makes every ignorant follower want to imitate by doing the same.'

The Tiger King star said keeping a big cat as a pet, 'never works out.'

She explained, 'the cats either die or end up dumped in sanctuaries or, worse yet, breeding mills.'

'Either way, it's always abusive to the cat,' Carole finished.

Cardi responds

Cardi's response to this was pretty simple.

She told i-D, 'I’m not gonna engage with Carole Baskin on that.'

'Like, that’s just ridiculous you know? Oh, Lord. Like, girl you killed your goddamn husband.'
