Twitter reacts: Cardi B apologises for Goddess Durga photoshoot!

The cover features her in the Goddess' avatar with 10 hands.

To support the launch of her new collaboration with Reebok, Cardi B will be headlining an all-new campaign with Reebok titled "B Unexplainable", celebrating her personal growth, passion for design, and equality.

"When I did the Reebok shoot, the creative were telling me: "You're going to represent a goddess who represents strength, femininity and liberation", and that's something that I love and that I'm all about, and I thought that it was dope".

Rap sensation Cardi B issued an apology for sporting a Goddess Durga "look" on the cover of a footwear magazine, which lead to social media outrage.

Another wrote, "So some people are saying Cardi B is paying homage to our Hindu goddess Durga".

'This is Disrespectful!' Shortly after the photos went viral across social media platforms, including Twitter, users lashed out at the rapper over her "blasphemous" representation of Goddess Durga. I do not like offending anyone's religion. If people think I'm offending their culture or their religion, I want to say it was not my intent.

She added, "When people dress as Virgin Mary and Jesus, as long as they do it in a attractive, graceful way...."

"Another day, another celebrity mocking out culture, what's new?"

Defined as the principal goddess of war, strength and protection, Durga is traditionally depicted as having numerous arms - a prominent detail in Cardi B's latest shoot. Cardi provided access to some of her fans, as a "birthday gift" and claims, "It started with advertisements and I just loved what they brought to the table".

When the "cardi" trend started happening on Twitter after some time for hurting the sentiments of the people, he posted an apology video in his Instagram story. One wrote, "My culture is not how you MARKET your PRODUCT".

Further, she said, "I wasn't trying to be disrespectful; maybe I should have done my research".

'I can go to sleep with the number one record, but I'm going to sleep and thinking, "I need my other album to go No. 1".
