Cardi B Apologizes, Martin Luther King Jr. Skit

Cardi B Apologizes, Martin Luther King Jr. Skit

TMZ recently uncovered a clip of Cardi B in a sketch from the upcoming comedy show Off the Rip, lead by Wild N Out‘s Rip Michaels. In the sketch, Cardi stars as Coretta Scott King, the late wife of Martin Luther King Jr., in a skit dubbed “The Real Housewives of the Civil Rights Movement,” and argues with several other women over the civil rights leader, at one point referring to Dr. King as a “hoe.” King’s daughter, Bernice King, and eldest son, Martin Luther King III, have spoken up against the sketch, with Bernice King deeming it “repulsive.”

Soon after, however, she tweeted at Cardi, thanking the rapper for “apologizing for the skit,” and noting that she anticipates speaking with Cardi “soon.” King III followed shortly after, stating that he appreciates Cardi’s “quick realization that the skit was in very poor taste.”

Check out the responses from both King family members below along with Martin Luther King Jr. III’s initial reaction.

Most recently, Cardi delivered her first on-stage performance since giving birth.

I appreciate @iamcardib ‘s quick realization that the skit was in very poor taste and in no way represents the partnership my parents had and the work they accomplished. pic.twitter.com/bFA2PSSNNH
