She wrote, "So .it's episode 1 and I'm at Paris Fashion week shutting it down! I turn around and there stands YOU." The rapper also changed her display picture to Penn Badgley's on-screen character and fans wondered what was amiss.

Netflix was quick to respond to the rapper and used lyrics from her very own song so do so. They wrote, "Tie me up like I'm surprised" as they accompanied the lyric with an image of Joe tried up. They also referenced another line from her song and wrote, "Let's role-play, I wear a disguise" and posted a picture of Joe in a chef's hat.

Penn Badgley praises Cardi B for her hands-on attitude

It all began during a promotional event when Badgley praised Cardi B's hands-on attitude and revealed that he is nothing like her. Following this, a Cardi B fan account posted a clip of the actor, who was seen speaking at Netflix’s 'In Conversation with YOU' event. In the interview shared by a fan page, Penn appreciated Cardi B’s unique approach to social media. The actor said, “I really appreciate people who have this totally second-nature relationship to it, because that's when you have something meaningful and substantive to post, then I think it really comes through and people appreciate it all the more. Cardi B is a great example of that. She has such an authentic relationship.”
