Posting luxury vacation photos and videos on social media or urging people to socially distance and wear masks while sipping a cocktail in your mansion's pool with thirty rapid-tested guests isn't exactly the most sensitive stance, but that hasn't stopped celebrities from being clueless about class in 2020. While many Americans lost loved ones or are currently out of work or struggling financially, it seems wildly out-of-touch to publicly flaunt exorbitant wealth. Of course, people have the right to express joy or relish in their own hard work or success despite the overall state of the world, but social media sometimes isn't the best outlet to celebrate your life in the public eye.
So, when Cardi B decided to take to Twitter this weekend to ask fans whether or not she should by an $88,000 purse, it seemed like a surreal joke at first. Considering that purse costs more than most American households made all year, it was a deeply unrelatable and divisive question.
