Can’t say we didn’t see this one coming. We’re talking about the reaction MLK, Jr‘s daughter is having to Cardi B‘s portrayal of Coretta Scott King in a skit from “Wild ‘N Out” star Rip Michaels’ new show, “Off the Rip.”
Dr. Bernice King — the youngest child of Martin Luther King Jr. and Coretta Scott King — has responded to Cardi’s portrayal of her mother, calling it “repulsive” and “false” … and very, very badly timed. By the way, today (08-28-18) is the 55th anniversary of MLK’s March on Washington where he delivered his famous “I Have a Dream” speech.
Bernice says Cardi is using a platform that her parents made possible in an atrocious way. She wants to talk to Cardi face-to-face. And it appears that’s going to happen because Cardi has reached out to Bernice, according to TMZ.
The video is unforgettable and probably the most hilarious thing you see today. On the other hand, it will also be the most inappropriate.
Here’s more from TMZ:
Cardi stepped into the role of Martin Luther King Jr.’s late wife for a skit called “Real Housewives of the Civil Rights Movement.” Yes, she went there … spilling tea with Rosa Parks and the wives of Malcolm X and Jesse Jackson. There’s also a jaw-dropping “Iggy Azalea” sighting.
You gotta watch, but fair warning … there are multiple references to MLK’s infamous infidelities, and even the trip to Memphis, where he was assassinated.
The sketch is part of “Wild ‘N Out” star Rip Michaels’ new show, “Off the Rip.” As we told you, it also features Cardi delivering “Ho Etiquette” jokes that some call racist.
Nope, it’s guaranteed NOT even get nominated for an NAACP Image Award, but as TMZ asks, “where else ya gonna see Cardi/Coretta drop the line … ‘All these hussies wanna sleep with my huuusband!’?”
