It turns out that the funny girl in the meme is no other than 25-year-old American rapper Cardi B, born Belcalis Almazar, as a child, when she was growing up at the Bronx, New York City, according to Marie Claire.

Cardi was the first to share her childhood picture on her Instagram account next to a funny phrase, and from that moment on thousands of users took it as material to create hilarious memes that go around the world.

On July 26, Cardi announced her decision to cancel her involvement on Mars' 24k Magic Tour as she realized she needed more time to ‘recover mentally and physically’ from her pregnancy and her new role as a mother.

‘I underestimated this whole mommy thing. Not only am I just not ready physically. I’m not ready to leave me baby behind since the doctors explained it’s not healthy for her to be on the road,’ she revealed on an Instagram post.
