On the 55th Anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr’s “I Have a Dream” Speech, Cardi B appears in an unforgettable “Real Housewive of the Civil Rights Movement” skit. The skit shows Cardi portraying Coretta Scott King as she spills tea with Rosa Parks and the wives of Malcolm X and Jesse Jackson.
Whoever wrote the skit had no shame in including MLK’s suspected infidelities or his trip to Memphis where he was assassinated. The skit is from a new show “Off the Rip,” by Wildn Out star Rip Michaels.
The daughter of Martin Luther King Jr. and Coretta Scott King has responded calling the skit “repulsive” and “false,” along with very, very bad timing. Adding that she wants to speak to Cardi B.
On the 55th anniversary of #IHaveADream,’ a clip on @TMZ depicts my parents (Cardi B playing my mom) & great women of the CRM in a repulsive, false light. They paid an extraordinary price so people of color can have a platform- & this is how you use it. @iamcardib: Let's talk.
