Rapper Cardi B used Instagram on Sunday, May 19, to give her fans instructions on how to greet her when they see her in public.
While the 26-year-old was clear that she really appreciates all the love and respect that she gets from her fans and others in public, Cardi B said that she hates when her fans scream and shout her name in such settings.
In a video posted to Instagram captioned, “Public Service Announcement,” the rapper said she would much rather fans approach her in a calm manner, with a simple hello.
