Cardi B has reacted to ex-cop Kim Potter's new mugshots where she can be seen smiling. In April 2021, Potter from Minnesota Police Department was held responsible for shooting a twenty-year-old black man named Daunte Wright during a routine traffic stop in the Minneapolis suburb of Brooklyn Center, Minnesota.

That’s the truth she been wanting to say but had to act like she was sorry", the 'Invasion of Privacy' singer tweeted Thursday, December 23.

Cardi's tweets received a lot of support from Twitterati who also took to social media to express anger and disappointment over the incident and the corrupt system. People retweeted Cardi's tweets several thousand times and are very happy about the fact the singer has been vocal about the incident and not gone easy on Potter.

Wright's shooting was another high-profile case of police brutality against a black person without much reason of getting triggered in such a manner. During her trial, Potter claimed in her testimony that the bullet was an accidental discharge and she didn't originally intend to use a firearm against the young man. Potter claimed that she remembered yelling taser and later realizing that she had actually shot Wright. She also told jurors that she had no actual intention of hurting anybody.
