The fifth level is marrying an Arab and owning oils in the 'Pakistans': Cardi B

Published: July 22, 2019


Rapper Cardi B has got Twitter users in fits by posting a video explaining her analogy of a successful relationship for women.

Amazingly, the American star even mentioned Pakistan at the end of her hilarious explanation of how women can “make it” in terms of men giving them presents and gifts.

Let’s go through Cardi B’s “levels” according to her Twitter post:

The first level is if your man is paying for your nails, hair and giving $400 a week. The second level is if your man is paying for “surgeries” in the Dominican Republic and he’s paying $3000 for your condo rent. The third level is if he is buying you a Mercedes-Benz and a diamond chain. The fourth level is if he buys a woman a salon or spa.

Now, the fifth and highest level according to Cardi B is the one setting off Twitter. “The fifth level is when you marry an Arab, congratulations because they own gas stations and all the oils in the Pakistans.”

Needless to say, the Bodak Yellow stars mention of Pakistan, which she referred to as the “Pakistans”, has ignited Twitter. “We are now forever going to be known as the 5th level of Cardi B,” one user commented.

“This is our moment to shine,” another replied. “You know I have to say, I sorely misjudged Cardi B. You don’t get this type of insight just anywhere,” one joked.

While hilarious memes were shared across the social media platform about Cardi B’s insight, many also took offense to her viewpoint about oil in Pakistan and reportedly racist slurs.

“There isn’t oil in the ‘Pakistans’ though… ladies do your research, DO NOT fall for Pakistani guys promising you oils,” a Twitter user commented.

Others had something to say about the hip-hop stars less than correct analogy of Pakistan’s geographical location. “You’d be surprised at how many people think Pakistani people are ‘Arabs’ and that Pakistan is in the Middle East,” a Twitter user replied.

Cardi B has recently been in the spotlight for all the wrong reasons after facing charges over a strip club dispute in New York.
