Sharing the same image of Cardi B on their Instagram handle Footwear News wrote, “If Cardi’s rockin’ it, go buy stock in it. That’s a tip as FN’s November cover star Cardi B makes her first major foray into the shoe industry with the Nov. 13 debut of her Club C Cardi sneaker collection with Reebok.”

Turns out this has not gone down well with many people, majorly Indians, who are calling out Cardi B for her wrong representation. A Twitter user wrote, “Cardi B !! You look like a devil. Goddess Durga is a motherly figure who do not show bare body and does not have such devilish nails…. You better pay homage to Lucifer, Asura or Raavana.. you will look good.”

Another wrote, “Cardi b did not pay “homage” to the Hindu goddess Durga by holding a shoe in her hand, this is plain disrespect and in no way cultural appreciation. she can’t getaway with this without addressing and apologizing for mocking our culture.”

“when will people stop mocking our culture for fun? first curry by Norazo and now by Cardi B. How is the dress she wearing depicting Maa Durga? I honestly am tired. This needs to stop. That is clearly Cultural Appropriation!!,” wrote a user.
