Cardi B shared the magazine cover on her official Instagram handle with the caption, "So excited for my sneaker drop this Friday, November 13th! Hope you guys love it!"

However, her artistically magazine cover did not go well with the netizens as one of the users said, "So some people are saying Cardi B is paying homage to our hindu goddess Durga. As a hindu, I want to say that, durga maa is never depicted bare bodied. Secondly it is prohibited to wear shoes in a temple and this woman is holding a shoe on her hand depicting goddess Durga?”

Another user said, "Shoe a fucking shoe do you know who Durga maa is? This is disrespectful!!! Cardi it's a No. Never. Not. From us."

Cardi collaborated with Reebok for her new collection and she has redesigned the brand's iconic Club C silhouette in the form of an all-new Club C Cardi and Cardi Coated Club C Double. She will be heading all the new campaign with Reebok titled "B Unexplainable", in which she will be seen celebrating her personal growth, passion for design, and equality.
