After facing some backlash for admitting that she'd drugged and robbed men in the past, Cardi B speaks.

On Tuesday (March 26), Cardi used her Instagram account to post a lengthy statement about her controversial IG Live video where she talked about drugging her clients and robbing them when she was a stripper. In her missive, the Grammy Award-winning rapper says the men she drugged and robbed were "conscious willing and aware" of what was going on.

"I never glorified the things I brought up in that live[.] I never even put those things in my music because I'm not proud of it and feel a responsibility not to glorify it," she says in one part of the note. "The men I spoke about in my live were men that I dated that I was [involved] with men that were conscious willing and aware. I have a past that I can't change we all do."

The comments that Cardi made are ones she said she originally offered during an IG Live session from three years ago.

"I had to go strip, I had to go, 'Oh yeah, you want to fuck me? Yeah, yeah, yeah, let's go back to this hotel,' and I drugged niggas up, and I robbed them. That’s what I used to do," Cardi says in the aforementioned video.
