A word of caution from Cardi B fans to Logan Paul: Do not compare yourself to the "Bodak Yellow" rapper.
Cardi, who recently performed at the Grammys with her "Finesse" collaborator Bruno Mars, posted an Instagram pic from the red carpet with this caption:
"They trinna crucify me like they did Christ."
Though it's unclear what Cardi was specifically referring to, fans noticed that disgraced YouTuber Paul made the caption all about himself. He wrote:
"lawlz u telling me."
The comment seemingly refers to the backlash Paul has received ever since posting a vlog of his visit to Japan's Aokigahara Forest. There, he found the body of a person who had recently died by suicide. He then edited and posted the video for his millions of viewers to see. Many saw the video as shameless and exploitive. Paul stated that he wanted to raise awareness about mental health.
"how are you gonna talk like this when you made a whole video about how sorry you were ? Even including survivors of suicide and then your gonna do this bullshit? Get off the Internet man," one commenter wrote.
"he's acting like he doesn't deserve the backlash," added another. "He's unremorseful and yes he's sorry he's losing money and not for what he did."
Another commenter cut right to the chase:
"take a seat and get Cardi’s name out ya mouth. You filmed a dead body you heartless cretin."
If Paul wants to be taken seriously on his apology tour, he may want to stay off Instagram for a while.
