Cheah blasted Cardi for forgetting the designer’s identify and simply calling him “Asian.” He mentioned:

“For the record and recognition, and no thanks to Cardi B, the designer of her gown is Sensen Lii who’s Chinese. The gown took two months to make. I personally think it’s boring and not even on theme but she chose it and should have at least remembered his name and not just that he’s ‘Asian.’”

Now Cardi is defending herself — and calling out Gilbert. Don’t count on her to apologize for the comment, although. She’s merely filled with excuses on this video! The Grammy winner mentioned she “had a lot of things on” her thoughts and was “very scared” since she didn’t get to pose on a podium as she rehearsed and was rushed to the entrance of the road that evening:

“I kind of forgot how to pronounce the designer’s name because his name is a little bit complicated… my mind was just racing. I think the former director of Vogue got offended because I said Asian designer. I said Asian designer because I know that the designer was Asian, but I wasn’t sure what nationality the designer was. And I feel like it’s offensive if I was to be like, ‘Oh, some Chinese designer. Oh, some Korean designer. Or some Vietnamese designer.’ I feel like get somebody’s nationality mixed up so I said an Asian designer. I didn’t say that to be offensive or to get your little speedos in a bunch.”

No one is upset as a result of she didn’t say, “they’re Chinese.” The entire level is that lowering anybody to a nationality/race/and so forth is BAD! If you possibly can’t bear in mind as a result of every little thing is so hectic, simply say that! Or higher but, have an assistant whose entire job is to recollect for you! You know that’s what you’ll be requested on the carpet!

Yeah… This was not it. Watch the non-apology video (under):
