Cardi’s male fans voiced their disappointment on Twitter. They pointed out that the ‘Up’ sensation bought an expensive Lamborghini costing $600K for her husband Offset, so why shouldn’t anyone else do the same?

I believe both partners should spend equally when it comes to buying gifts for each other. Do you agree?

On February 13th, 2021, Cardi responded to the backlash stating that she and Offset were ‘even in gifts’. This means that the couple spends equally on each other. The ‘Bodak Yellow’ star pointed out that he got her rings costing $500K and Hermes Birkin bags too.

She also received backlash for having materialistic choices and flaunting her $240k ‘Cargo Birkin’ bag. Read all about it here. Fans pointed out that gifts don't need to be expensive to be meaningful and both partners should put in the effort.

Do you agree with them?

 Everyone is entitled to their opinion, even Cardi. Though I don’t agree with her statement, I wouldn’t go out of my way to bash her with hateful comments online. It’s important to realize that gifts should be appreciated because people give them with love.

A day like Valentine’s is supposed to celebrate being with your loved ones. Do you think Cardi was right about what she said? Let us know in the comments below.
