Cardi B blames NYPD for not attending school supply giveaway

Posted: Updated:

Cardi B is blaming the NYPD for not being able to attend a school supply giveaway on Wednesday. 

The Bronx native was set to deliver school supplies to children in the neighborhood she grew up in, but did not show up. 

This comes after Cardi's profane rant earlier this week, accusing the NYPD of postponing her friend's giveaway in Brooklyn. 

The NYPD denied the claim and told News 12 they would assist to ensure the success of the postponed event. 
 
Cardi B took to Instagram to tell her fans she would no longer be attending the event.
 
In the social media post, she showed the bags of supplies she was ready to deliver to children. 
 
Officers told News 12 they weren't refusing Cardi B's appearance, they simply wanted the proper security measures put in place for her to be there. 
 
Whedco and the Garden of Dreams foundation, along with other organizations, handed out at least 600 backpacks.
