February 11, 2019

For rapper Cardi B, winning her first Grammy was a big deal. After her victory, Cardi received many congratulations and gifts, including one that she believed was sent by late rocker Tom Petty.

In a since deleted Instagram story, Cardi B said, "Thank you Tom Petty for the flowers," probably not realizing that Petty had passed away in 2017.

"I left the room but the flowers were very big. I want to say thank you so much." Cardi B then began to thank Petty for the "beautiful note" that came with the flowers, which turned out to be lyrics from his song "Walls (Circus)," "You've got a big heart. So big it could crush this town."

"Motherf*** love me, bro!" Cardi said at the end of her video.

Although it was unknown who actually sent the flowers and card, many social media users did get a giggle at Cardi's gaffe.
