Los Angeles, March 23 (IANS) Rapper Cardi B has a conspiracy theory. She feels that celebrities who have said that they tested positive for COVID-19 are all paid.

"We keep seeing these basketball players say like, 'Yeah, I have the coronavirus but I don't got no symptoms'. So how the f**k am I supposed to know when I am supposed to get tested for it?!" she said inthe video.
Cardi added: "Y'all n****s is playin' with me. That's my problem right there. Cause y'all not really saying what it is. And it's like, alright, so tell me what it is and what it ain't. I'm starting to feellike y'all n****s is payin' n****s to say that they got it."
She went on to say: "If y'all are paying n****s to say that they gotit, pay me too! Pay me too! Okay? S**t, 'cause I'm trying to get paid."
Many of her fans on social media blindly agreed with Cardi's theory.
"I mean the thought has crossed my mind," one Instagram user wrote.
"SIS IS WOKE! like is y'all getting paid or?" another said.
A user added: "EXACTLY!!! You had no symptoms but got tested. But his
would you know to get tested... Cardi is righttt."
