Cardi B removed her wig and her makeup, and showed fans what she really looks like - and they were stunned.

They were especially distraught after seeing how the wigs have "destroyed" Cardi's hairline.

Here's the pic that's been released:


Cardi made news last week after ripping her wig off in the middle of a concert in the UK - and hurled it into the audience. The rapper claimed that she got "carried away" when she threw her beloved hairpiece at her ecstatic audience members attending the 2019 Wireless Festival in London on July 5th.

Cardi posted a video to Instagram shot from the audience of her Wireless Festival show in London. In it, we see her onstage literally snatching her own wig in a moment of performing passion, only to then throw it into the screaming crowd. She continues to perform in her wig cap, seemingly unfazed, but she obviously later regretted letting go of the long, black hair. "I GOT CARRIED AWAY .......I want my wig back," she wrote in the caption, hoping the fan who caught the wig would see the post. "Dm me."

Celebrities and fans alike loved the clip, of course. Snoop Dogg commented, "I’m done 😂😂😂😂. U may have pulled off. The greatest move in hip hop 💙💙💪🏾," while British singer Ray BLK wrote, "Too late it’s already on eBay sis 😂😂." Others agree that whoever caught it must be auctioning it off, with one fan writing, "They gonna sell it on eBay by the strand 😭😭🔥🔥🔥🔥 this was too good 💯🎉," and another thinks Cardi is about to be inundated with messages from people claiming they were the ones who caught it, saying, "Everyone finna be in ur DM talking bout they got your wig." As of now, though, Cardi hasn't said whether or not she's gotten any legit offers to return it.

She finished the concert wearing just a head wrap on her head.

And last night, she showed what her "real" hair looks like. Cardi was wearing cornrows - and her edges were chewed up. The image quickly went viral - here are some of the comments on social media:

God damn! In the hood they call that no edges 

She got a lacefront glue print on her forehead.

Is she missing teeth. A face with full teeth should not be able to contort like that.

Offset lost.

Cardi B is a big fan of wigs. From waist-length rainbow waves to mint-green lobs, the rapper has relied on them to make quick, high-impact changes to her look. And considering she has so many, you'd think she could spare one — but apparently not.
