Cardi B drove by a group of President Donald Trump supporters on Saturday, and the rapper documented her "scared" reaction to the encounter. 

A video posted to Cardi's Instagram story shows her driving through crowds of demonstrators waving Trump 2020 flags and wearing "Make America Great Again" hats. 

"Nah, we're gonna get jumped. I really feel like we're gonna get jumped," Cardi said as her car drove by the group. "Oh my god. Ah!" 

Cardi's vehicle then passed by an intersection with several trucks that appeared to belong to more demonstrators. 

"Trump supporters are everywhere, I'm scared. I don't like it, with their big a– trucks," the rapper said in a subsequent video. 

Another clip showed masked Trump supporters walking by Cardi's car, which had pulled off and parked on a side street.

"I don't like this s—. Look at this. Look at this! Look how they're walking around," Cardi said. "With fake guns out and covering their f—ing face. I don't like this s—." 

Cardi's husband Offset also had a run-in with pro-Trump demonstrators earlier that day. 

During a live video shared to the Migos rapper's personal Instagram account, Offset was removed from his vehicle and detained by police while driving through a crowd of Trump supporters.

The authorities told him that they had received a report saying passengers in his vehicle were "waving guns" at bystanders. 

People on social media concluded Offset had been arrested. However, reports the rapper was arrested were inaccurate, according to a statement from the Beverly Hills police obtained by Insider.

The police received a call complaining that someone in a vehicle had pointed a weapon at them, according to the statement. When police responded, Offset was detained and released, while a person he was with was arrested on charges of carrying a concealed weapon and a loaded firearm.

In a tweet, Philip Lewis of the Huffington Post said that the person who was arrested, Marcelo Almanzar, is Cardi B's cousin. The videos from Cardi's Instagram story appeared to be filmed as she was making her way to the scene. 

This isn't the first time a celebrity has spoken out about their encounter with Trump supporters. 

On Tuesday, "Grown-ish" star Francia Raisa broke down in tears on Instagram after she said she was "boxed in" by a caravan of Trump demonstrators on the highway.
