American star Penn Badgley, who is famously known for his character in the series YOU, recently expressed his thoughts about rapper Cardi B. During a promotional event, Penn praised Cardi B's hands-on attitude and revealed that he is nothing like her. Following this, a Cardi fan account posted a clip of Badgley, who was seen speaking at Netflix’s “In Conversation with YOU” event in Manila, Philippines. In the interview shared by a fan page, Penn appreciated Cardi B’s unique approach to social media which makes her so popular among the youngsters and her fans.

While sharing his thoughts about Cardi B during the event, he 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.”

Adding to it, he said, “To me, it's this incredibly nuanced place to be, and despite what many might judge as antics, I feel she has an incredibly authentic relationship to that, and I think that's why people like her so much". The mother of two was quick to take notice of the video on Twitter and instantly reacted to it. “OOOOMMFFFGGGGGG HE KNOWS ME !!!OMMMGGGG!!!!!!Yoooo like I'm famous famous", the WAP rapper reacted.

The actor responded to Cardi's tweet with a simple "I", indicating his disbelief. The rise in Badgley’s fan-following seems to have grown more as the third season of the show was released recently. Apart from those who shower him with love or some who may not be too pleased with what his character does in the show, there are some who seem to be having some unique requests for the actor. One such fan requested him to kidnap her, to which Penn himself responded. A fan tagged Penn Badgley and tweeted to him, "Ayoooo kidnap me". The actor jokingly replied that he was not sure, but we felt that the word 'ayooo' before the word 'kidnap' brought a 'different ring' to it and added, 'I'm not mad'.

Meanwhile, the third season of the show hit Netflix on October 15 and instantly became a talking point. The season features 10 episodes in all. All the episodes have been released together and are available for streaming. The show even became No 1 on the streaming platform, after beating the latest sensation Squid Game.
