“You know we all celebrate Veterans Day, and you know we always say, ‘Thank you to our soldiers,’ but I don’t know anybody who’s been to war,” the Grammy-winning artist continued. “I don’t know any veterans. I don’t know anybody that went to Afghanistan or any type of war like the Vietnam War, the Gulf Coast War,” she added.

She detailed some of the hardships they endure, such as post-traumatic stress disorder. “A lot of them turn to drug abuse because they trying to escape all of the things they went through. And it’s crazy because you might see a crackhead or you might see somebody shooting dope in the train, and you might just think, ‘Oh look at that dope head, look at that fiend,’ but that’s most likely a veteran that is going through so much mental s**t and has fought for our country, and because he couldn’t get the help he needed, he’s in that situation.”

Community service

Cardi received a community service sentence related to the 2018 club brawl. She was scheduled to complete the hours through Jan. 17; However, she appeared before a Queen’s magistrate that day and was granted an extension. 

She now has until March and is already proving she’s serious about cutting the remaining days before the new date.
