Cardi B says she made $1 million for a recent performance at a private event, urging detractors to “think about that” when speaking about her.

The sizable payday reveal stems from a since-removed tweet from Cardi, who told her 26 million Twitter followers she made “1 million dollars to perform at this elite bankers event private event for 400 people and only for 35 minutes.”

Shifting to all-caps to close out the tweet, which also included an excerpt of a document showing the payment amount, Cardi responded to an attempted diss from another Twitter user by telling them to “think about that when you type about this Grammy winner.”

While the tweet in question has indeed been removed, it’s continued to surface in screenshot form, as seen below.

Cardi also shared another tweet about the private event, this one including photos of the performance. At the time of this writing, that particular tweet remained live.
