Cardi B is reportedly encouraging fans who purchased a doll made in her likeness to request a refund from the company she partnered with to produce them. 

Earlier this year, Cardi teamed up with Real Women Are, an ambitious doll brand that promotes diversity, to create the Cardi B limited edition fashion doll. Both Cardi and Real Women Are encouraged fans to preorder the toy in March during Women’s History Month. 

“BARDI GANG!! I’m dropping my own doll TODAY! Inspired by me. Created by me. Designed by me. Thank you @officialrealwomenare This means sooo much. Visit the website now to reserve your doll,” Cardi wrote via an Instagram post. The Real Women Are website also announced that the exclusive dolls would begin shipping in October, however several customers still have not received their orders. And they’re letting Cardi and the company know in their Instagram comments. 

“No doll preorder also not cool. Was supposed to be for Christmas. I want my $$ back,” one customer commented on Cardi’s post. “WHERE IS MY DOLL?????” wrote another customer.  

“She never talks about the Dolls ever!! Everything else is promoted all week and all month until it drops. SMH we need our money back @iamcardib … “WHEN ARE WE GETTING THEM SHIPPED? IT’S ALMOST 1 YEAR LATER. WE NEED ANSWERS,” an upset buyer wrote. 

While Cardi has not publicly addressed the situation, a representative for the “Up” rapper recently told TMZ “the dolls will not be released as a result of COVID-related manufacturing and shipping delays.”

The outlet is reporting that Cardi had concerns with the quality of the dolls, and she has asked the company to refund all pre-sale purchases. Real Women Are reportedly agreed to honor Cardi’s requests, however it’s unclear exactly how much money the company made from preorder sales of the $35 doll. 

In March, Cardi visited the “Today” show to promote the doll. “I have a two-year-old and I buy dolls every time I go to Target, and they’re expensive. So, somebody came with this idea to me, and I was like, ‘that is great, I would love for my daughter to play with a doll that looks like me,’” she said at the time. “I mean all these other dolls don’t look like me, I might as well make one for myself.” She told the hosts that the dolls would be available to be purchased in July
