LA: Rapper Cardi B recently landed in controversy during the launch of her debut sneaker with Reebok which is due on Friday, November 13.

The rapper was paying homage to the Hindu goddess Durga in a stunning pink Georges Hobeika robe to promote her sneaker assortment.

Cardi captioned one picture, “So excited for my sneaker drop this Friday, November 13th! Hope you guys love it!”

Footwear New’s Instagram handle shared the image of Cardi, captioning it, “If Cardi’s rockin’ it, go buy stock in it. That’s a tip as FN’s November cover star Cardi B makes her first major foray into the shoe industry with the Nov. 13 debut of her Club C Cardi sneaker collection with Reebok.”

Cardi’s corseted gown revealed her cleavage, and this hurt more than a few Indian sensibilities. Indians were extremely displeased by Cardi’s bare-bodied homage to the Goddess, and one Twitter user wrote, “So some people are saying Cardi B is paying homage to our Hindu goddess Durga. As a Hindu, I want to say that, durga maa is never depicted bare-bodied. Secondly, it is prohibited to wear shoes in a temple and this woman is holding a shoe on her hand depicting goddess Durga?”

However, soon after Cardi began to trend on Twitter, the rapper posted an apology video vias her Instagram handle.
