Bernice King took to Twitter to accept Cardi B's apology.
During the VMA's red carpet, "Wild N Out" star Rip Michaels announced that he worked with Cardi B for his forthcoming sketch comedy show "Off The Rip." A skit from the show surfaced today with Cardi B portraying Coretta Scott King in "The Real Housewives Of The Civil Rights Movement." MLK's daughter, Bernice, made it clear how she felt about the skit and Cardi B apparently heard her loud and well.
Bernice King took to Twitter to reveal that Cardi B reached out to her and apologized for her spoofing Coretta Scott King.
"Thank you, @iamcardib, for reaching out to me and apologizing for the skit that aired on @TMZ. I look forward to talking with you soon." She wrote on Twitter.
The release of the skit came on the wrong day. August 28th, 2018 marks the 55th anniversary of Martin Luther King's "I Have A Dream" speech. Bernice King said the skit was "repulsive" and represented her parents in a "false light." She also called out the fact that the footage surfaced at a poor time because of the anniversary of her father's most notable speech.
At this point, Cardi B hasn't made any comments to the public about the skit itself but at least, she heard Bernice King's message and apologized.
Rip Michaels hasn't revealed the launch date for "Off The Rip" just yet but he did reveal Cardi B will have a big role in it. Hopefully, none of the other material on the show is this offensive.
