HOUSTON (FOX 26) - Thousands of people have a signed a petition asking rapper Cardi B to not perform at RodeoHouston.
They say she's an animal lover and therefore shouldn't support the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo because they say the animals there are abused.
The Care2 petition was started on Monday and already has well over 15,000 signatures.
Cardi B is still scheduled to take the stage at NRG Stadium on March 1.
The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo released this statement to FOX 26 Houston:
The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo™ strongly believes in the importance of animal welfare. We take great pride in the care and attention our livestock receive throughout the Rodeo. We work closely with veterinary professionals and the Houston SPCA who are on-site daily.
We are looking forward to welcoming Cardi B on March 1 and would be happy to show her how we treat all animals.
