The Twitter user wrote: ‘one thing that has been ticking me is that there’s a close friend of my aunt’s that has the coronavirus and she went to the hospital but they told her, to go home they can’t serve her. So she’s been stuck at home with the rest of her family without getting help.’

She went on: ‘But then I go on social media and see Cardi B at the hospital because she “thinks” she has the virus and getting the help she needs. I know celebs have advantages, but this is someone’s life.’

The Twitter user concluded: ‘You can allow a celeb (who, by the way can help with a few donations and help the hospital) who thinks they have the virus to enter the hospital, (She ended up not having it) than an individual who does have it. Okay. The world is a mess.’

Cardi retorted: ‘Ummmmmm I was literally throwing up everything I swallow and lost 5 pounds in 4days do to stomach issues. NOT CAUSE OF THE RONA.You can still go to the hospital for other problems you kno.’

‘Honestly cause I been having some real bad stomach problems for four days I went to the ER last night and I’m feeling way better,’ she wrote.

‘Hopefully tomorrow I will feel no more pain,’ added Cardi, who shares her one-year-old daughter Kulture with her husband Offset of Migos fame.

Cardi herself recently denouncing celebrities for creating ‘confusion’ by announcing they have COVID-19 without showing symptoms.

The Bodak Yellow hitmaker said in a social media video that ‘the general public, people that work regular jobs, people that get regular paychecks, the middle class, the poor…they’re not getting treated like celebrities.’

Matthew Broderick’s sister Janet, who recently recovered from COVID-19, believes she was treated better at her Beverly Hills hospital because of her showbiz link.

‘I think I’m absolute living proof that this system is completely corrupt,’ the reverend told New York Magazine after her bout of the illness.
