Cardi B is getting death threats from a high-profile street gang after she dissed them on social media.

The whole thing started on Feb. 5 after the rapper posted a photo while wearing a blue coat. "I hate wearing Flue but this coat was too poppin," she wrote. The word "Flue" is a big slap in the face to the Crips gang, as blue is the gangs color. By refusing to write "blue," Cardi opened up the flood gates.

Cardi has long said that she associates with the Bloods gang, the Crips longtime foe. On Instagram last year she said she "put in work" to become a member of the gang.

As threats started pouring in, Cardi took down the caption, but the photo remains on Instagram.

Some of those threatening her indicated that they know her schedule, and they warned her not to go to Los Angeles for the NBA All Star Game, where she is scheduled to be. 

Cardi took down the comment option on the photo, but TMZ published several of the threats lobbied at Cardi. "@iamcardib this will not be accepted #DONTCOMETOLA," one said. Another said her post is "literally WestCoast Suicide."
