Cardi B and Other Artists Speak on Capitol Invasion

Hip-Hop Artisits Sound Off on Capitol Building Violence

 

January 6th, 2021 will be remembered as a day of infamy with Donald Trump supporters storming the US Capitol building in response to Donald Trump losing the Presidential Election.

Downtown DC was the scene for a massive protest that led to an outbreak of violence on the Capitol grounds and artists like Cardi B and 50 Cent voiced their opinions as American citizens.

The violence led to property damage at the Capitol building as well as the theft of many documents from Congress and the Senate.

Although Capitol Police were on the scene to prevent the protest from getting out of hand, there were still many moments of chaos that occurred.

In the midst of the Trump supporters rushing the doors of the Capitol building, an officer fired his gun into a crowd and critically injured a young woman. The woman who has not been identified was unarmed and wearing a Trump flag. She was pronounced dead from her injuries after being taken to the hospital.

Despite everything that Trump supporters did in storming the Capitol building, authorities still have not made any arrests on the people responsible. The lack of action prompted several artists like Cardi, 50 Cent, Wale, and many more to express disappointment.

The disappointment stems from comparing the lack of consequence in the Trump riots to the BLM protests that led to peaceful protestors being mased and pelted with rubber bullets.

Cardi B is never one to shy away from an opinion and has even gone toe to toe with people like Candice Owens over politics.  Cardi took to her Twitter and started by asking “Where’s the National Guard?”.  Following that initial tweet she went on to say:

“The irony is pretty funny………weren’t people just wild animals in the summer for demanding justice and now?”

DMV native Wale also voiced his opinion on what was happening downtown via his Twitter:

“White privilege is no myth, but we knew that already tho”

50 Cent used a visual aid to describe the discrimination on his Instagram:

 

Both celebrities and everyday citizens have expressed their disaproval how the Trump supporters were not punished for their crimes against America.
