Cardi B may be an hourglass-shaped, designer clothing-wearing, twerking icon when she's on stage or in the public eye, but during her time off at home, the "Bodak Yellow" artist is just like her fans. She's no stranger to indulging in the occasional fast food meal, and lately, Chick-fil-A has been her first choice. With their delicious chicken and wide array of sauces, it's easy to understand why Cardi chose to order from the controversial spot, though they certainly felt her wrath when messing up her order two days in a row.

"I'm soo mad at Chick-fil-A right now 😡😡😡," the mother of two wrote in a now-deleted tweet earlier this week. "Literally furious!!!" Elsewhere on social media, Bardi posted a video further explaining her situation. "I'm really getting sick and tired of y'all motherf**kers," she said after naming the location that's getting her order wrong lately. Going full Karen mode, the New Yorker yelled about putting in a complaint before providing receipts to show the missing dips she requested.

Chick-fil-A Tries to Ruin Cardi B's Week

While that chaotic experience was likely a low point of Cardi's week, the highlight had to be her experience walking down the Balenciaga runway in an oversized blue coat. The Grammy Award winner has long had a relationship with the fashion house, despite them being cancelled in recent years for questionable treatment of children during photoshoots, among other things. The presentation was a surprisingly star-studded event, with Kim Kardashian and Sexyy Red linking up while Lil Wayne and 2 Chainz cheered Bardi on from the front row.
