Footage surfaced online not long ago showing the Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso, involved in a disturbing sexual interaction with a child, and it has since gained criticism worldwide.
Among the critics is the widely acclaimed rapper who could not help but advise parents to keep their kids away from predators. However, she was slammed in the process.
Cardi B Indirectly Labels The Dalai Lama A ‘Predator’ In Warning Message To Parents
The award-winning musician took to Twitter to address the Dalai Lama’s controversial action with a series of messages expressing her aversion.
In one tweet, she wrote about predators targeting children and warned parents to be wary. She began, “This world is full of predators. They prey on the innocent. The ones who are most unknowing, our children.”
She added, “Predators could be our neighbors, school teachers, even people with money, power & churches. Constantly talk with your kids about boundaries and what they shouldn’t allow people to do to them.
The message gained millions of views, with a few appreciating her for speaking about the issue and listing those who should be blamed in such situations.
A user wrote, “Especially these Church people hiding behind God w/ their treachery!!” In agreement, another remarked, “And the TV teaching gender confusion.” A third fan noted that the Dalai Lama situation was “unpleasant,” while a fourth praised Cardi B to “never stop reaching, never stop learning.”
However, the “Bodak Yellow” rapper’s past came to haunt her with a troll pointing out that she was talking about predators but once drugged “people’s sons” and allegedly raped them with “transexuals.”
Another fan who disagreed with the “Hustlers” star’s opinion urged her to be careful of using the word “allow” as kids are helpless against a predator.
However, Cardi doubled down on her thoughts, writing, “I don’t gotta watch my words. I know exactly what I mean. When you start potty training your kids, you should tell them DONT LET nobody touch your privates, enter the bathroom wit you, and don’t keep no secrets away from mommy …You took one word to try to make debate …DRINK YOUR COFFEE.”
Regardless of the snide comments received, Cardi maintained her point of view. In a final post, she poured out her heart while appreciating fans who supported her message.
In her words, “Wow, all this support I’m getting at the same time is beautiful; it was deep in my heart to talk about this cause me & my friend were talking last night & then the Dalai lama thing happened this morning.”
In the end, she noted that those who were hating on her were only projecting. She declared, “Thank you, everyone. I have to realize the people attacking me are just projecting.”
The Dalai Lama Apologizes For Unnerving Sexual Act Following Scandal Involving A Minor
Cardi’s outburst came amid the religious leader’s controversial apology after the unsettling video went viral. The sickening clip showed the Dalai Lama asking a young Indian boy to kiss him and “suck” his tongue.
It began with the child asking if he could hug the Dalai Lama during an event held by India’s M3M Foundation. The youngster was allowed to hug Gyatso before the aged man told him to kiss him on the cheek and his lips.
The duo kissed briefly and then pressed their heads together. However, as the boy was about to pull away, the spiritual guide instructed him to “suck my tongue.”
The order prompted the boy to move towards the octogenarian’s outstretched tongue slowly. At the same time, several in the audience could be heard laughing as he sat in front of the Dalai Lama and followed his orders. It is unsure if the crowd’s laughter was awkward or a sign of acceptance.
Before letting the child go, Gyatso counseled him to “look to those good human beings who create peace and happiness” and not to “follow those human beings who always kill other people.”

Nevertheless, the highly disgusting video sparked an outrage resulting in the religious leader issuing an apology on Twitter. The statement read, “His Holiness wishes to apologize to the boy and his family, as well as his many friends across the world, for the hurt his words may have caused.”
It went on, “His Holiness often teases the people he meets innocently and playfully, even in public and before cameras. He regrets the incident.”
