Cardi B urges people to stay safe after Georgia Governor Brian Kemp announced that they would be re-opening gyms, hair & nail salons, bowling alleys, and more this week.
Many including rap superstar Cardi B are concerned about Georgia re-opening non-essential services too quickly after it was revealed that Governor Brian Kemp intends to allow hair salons, bowling alleys, gyms, barbershops, and more to open their doors at the end of this week.
Bardi has always been well known for using her platform to speak out and offer an outspoken voice in politics. Early on in the election cycle, Cardi endorsed Bernie Sanders and interviewed him about his policies on several occasions. She even recently gave him advice on the state of his nails while in quarantine. The rapper has also been vocal about the current pandemic. Following a viral remix of her social media coronavirus speech, Cardi has been offering her two cents about staying healthy during the pandemic, and the singer isn’t happy about Georgia lifting their temporary ban on non-essential businesses.
As Georgia plans to re-open the economy on Friday, many people are alarmed since the United States hasn’t even hit its peak yet in terms of the deadly coronavirus pandemic. This could be a health disaster waiting to happen and it seems everyone but those in charge know that. Commenting on an Instagram post about the state’s new policy, Cardi issued a stern warning. “Don’t go around your parents or grandparents!” she wrote. “Once there sick and in the hospital wit covid you won’t be able to see how and what they are treating them with.” Cardi ended her cautionary message with a reminder of her priorities: “Health over capitalism.”
