Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s less-than-a-week-old “WAP” music video has got so many people talking including Carole Baskin.
Carole Baskin shared her thoughts on the WAP song and its massively popular, tiger-featuring video.
In a statement to Entertainment Weekly, Baskin shared how she was concerned about the animals shown in the visual, and that she believed it was exploitative to have big cats there in the first place.
- “You have to pose a wildcat in front of a green screen to get that image and that doesn’t happen in the wild,” Baskin wrote. “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, probably even one of the ones shown in Tiger King, Murder, Mayhem and Madness, who make a living from beating, shocking and starving cats to make them stand on cue in front of a green screen in a studio.”
Cardi who is well known for her clap backs saw the recent interview and responded,
“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.”
