You don’t come for Cardi B, she sends for you

Joan Hill, a Renaissance High School for Musical Theater and the Arts history teacher, came to the defense of one of her former students who took a public stand about the political events happening in our country. Her former student? None other than Cardi B.

It started during the government shutdown (the longest in U.S. history) when the rapper posted a video on Instagram criticizing the president and speaking out for all the folks wondering when their next paycheck would come in.

“This shit is crazy,” she said in the Insta video. “Like, our country is a hellhole right now, all for a fucking wall. And we really need to take this serious.”

Of course, people immediately jumped in, assuming she couldn’t possibly know what she’s talking about. But instead of having to defend herself, an old mentor did so on the new mom’s behalf.
