Cardi hopped on Instagram to express her annoyance with people who criticize celebrities for not donating more to charity. She informs her followers that the IRS takes 45% of her checks, she takes care of her entire family, and her bills total $300,000 per month.
“You know what I hate, I hate when celebrities do something very extravagant, buy something very luxurious and there’s people in the comments like ‘you could of donated that’ […] and it’s like…who are you to tell people what to do with they hard workin’ ass money. First of all, do you know that artists, celebrities… the IRS, out of every cheque that you make they automatically take 45% of your cheque. That means in order to spend $500K you gotta make at least a million. ”
She adds, “Being an artist, looking good for yall, doing all this extra shit to please yall – that shit costs money. Like me for example, my bills is like, I’d say about $300K, $250K every single month and I try to put it cheaper and it’s just not.”
