Cardi B has strongly criticized the stepson of British billionaire Hamish Harding for attending a Blink-182 concert while knowing that his stepfather is aboard the missing Titanic submarine.
Brian Szasz, confirming his relation to the explorer in a Facebook post, shared a picture from the San Diego concert, asserting that his family would want him to be present.
However, Cardi B expressed her anger on social media, suggesting that the stepson should be at home waiting for updates on his stepfather’s whereabouts instead of enjoying the concert.
Using a filter that amused many of her followers, Cardi B addressed her audience, saying, “One of the billionaires, their stepson is at a concert right, at a Blink 182 concert. And people are like, ‘Erm, what is he supposed to do, be sad at the house? Is he supposed to go look for him himself?’ Yes! You are supposed to be at the house sad, be crying for me, you are supposed to be right next to the phone, waiting to hear any updates about me.”
She continued, expressing her disbelief that someone from a wealthy background could be seemingly ignored in a time of crisis: “Isn’t that sad that you are a whole f*****g billionaire, and nobody gives a f**k about you? Like you’re missing, and motherf****rs are ready to shake d***s at concerts. That’s crazy! I’d rather be broke and poor than knowing I’m loved.”
While some fans found Cardi B’s filter amusing, others questioned the seriousness of her message with the comedic element.
In his original Facebook post, Brian Szasz shared an image of himself outside the San Diego venue, expressing his appreciation for attending the Blink-182 concert, as it was his favorite band and music helped him during difficult times.
The post received support from family and friends who commented in favor of Szasz’s decision.
As the search for the missing Titanic tourist sub continues, the US Coast Guard issued a grim warning that rescuing the sub, even if located, may not be possible.
The submersible, with Hamish Harding and four others on board, lost contact with its mothership only a few hours into the dive.
The Coast Guard estimated that the sub has approximately 40 hours of breathable air remaining, with concerns of potential implosion. This has since, sadly, run out, according to the Coast Guard’s estimations.
The Titan submersible has been missing since Sunday morning, and OceanGate Expeditions, the company responsible for the sub, notified the Coast Guard hours after the incident.
The passengers aboard the sub include OceanGate CEO Stockton Rush, renowned Titanic wreck expert PH Nargeolet, and British-Pakistani billionaire Shahzada Dawood and his son Sulaiman. Even if the sub is located in time, there is uncertainty about whether it can be safely brought to the surface.
During a press conference, Captain Jamie Frederick of the US Coast Guard acknowledged the uncertainty of a successful rescue, stating that they would do everything in their power to effect a rescue but could not guarantee the outcome. The Coast Guard has conducted an extensive search covering an area equivalent to the size of Connecticut, but the challenge of the situation remains significant.
