It’s been a weird summer for many, but in particular for Chris Evans and Cardi B, who both accidentally posted nudes to Instagram in recent months. Cardi B posted a topless photo on Instagram Stories, which she says happened on accident. It was quickly deleted, but now the rapper, SNL guest and Hustlers actress has responded to explain exactly what happened.
Cardi B also clarified she’s not going to beat herself up about the topless mistake, noting that she was taking a photo with Offset when she accidentally pressed and began loading it to Instagram. She tried turning off her phone in order to keep the picture from loading, but it was too late. The image was already out there and, as she put it, everyone had seen “her big salami nipple titties." It stayed up for a while, too, as she worked to re-turn on her phone and delete it. She said:
In a full post on Instagram, the rapper was also open about her body, the drama she’s been dealing with since a lot of people saw her topless. In another post on Twitter, she was a little harder on herself, but also noted that it just happened and we should move on.
In the time since the photo dropped, a lot of women have been sharing topless photos on Twitter in solidarity with Cardi B (be forewarned, some of those images are NSFW). She’s been retweeting them frequently, and there are quite a few fans out there showing their support.
Meanwhile, Chris Evans faced similar commentary on the Internet just a few weeks ago when he accidentally showed himself naked on social media. So, this is one mistake that seems as if it can and does happen on the regular. In his case, the MCU actor called his week that week “interesting” and said it was full of “lessons learned.”
He skated by pretty easily, though some women, including Kat Dennings said there was a double standard there in the public’s response. If anything, in this case Cardi B seems like the one beating herself up a little here. Her fans have come out in full-fledged support and the public should move on… though it may be a few more days.
