To support their claims, fans point to imagery in the video that’s allegedly associated with the secret society, occult symbolism and Freemasonry, such as the “black-and-white pattern outfit she’s wearing in the beginning, the design on her hands while she’s playing the piano and the triangle makeup on one of the strippers, Newsweek writes, adding: “A YouTube clip claiming the “Money” video is “Freemason porn” has more than 13,000 views.”
Fans previously accused Cardi of being part of the cult, though she denied that in an Instagram post back in March.

“I don’t understand how you mother f***ers see artists every single day, like busting their ass—I bust my ass every single day, every day, every day—but you y’all want to blame the success on mother f***ing Illuminati. You wear a checkered shirt, ‘Illuminati.’ Triangle, ‘Illuminati,’” she said at the time.
“Do you know if I spend my money tomorrow I ain’t gonna have shit, eh? Do you know if I stop doing music, if I stop working, tomorrow, if I be like, ‘I don’t want to work no more,’ my shit will go in the garbage,” she said.
“Shut the f*** up with this sh*t,” the rapper said at the end of the one-minute video. “I pray to God every single day for me to be at where I’m at. So why, if I’m at where I’m at, that’s when I’m gonna stop f***ing with God?”
Cardi ended her post with: “F*** Satan. F*** you and that dumb ass shit. Get out of here with that.”
