Cardi B Slams A Troll Who Said Singer’s Daughter, Kulture Has Autism
American rapper, Cardi B has addressed a social media commenter who said her 3-year-old daughter, Kulture has Autism.
The Twitter user had told her to get off the blue app and pay attention to her kids, saying that her daughter, Kulture, who turns 4 in July, has autism.
Reacting to this, Cardi B issued a response to the Twitter user, writing in part;
“My daughter is not autistic…You can’t call her ugly so y’all have to diagnose her wit something.”
“WHY YALL BRING UP KIDS FOR?” she tweeted.
While many fans came to Cardi’s defense and agreed with her decision to address the social media user, others pointed out that calling someone autistic should not be considered an insult.

“You have every right to defend your child. I’m just trying to understand why saying a child is autistic would be used as an insult,” wrote one Twitter user.
“If you don’t understand anything pertaining to a child having autism you should know that they are gifted and amazing in their own individual way.❤️”
Another added; “I have two grandsons with Autism. They are my heart. I don’t know what made people call your daughter Autistic, but it’s nothing to be ashamed of.”
Cardi shares Kulture with her husband Offset. The pair, who wed in a secret ceremony in September 2017, also welcomed son Wave in September last year; however, they didn’t share his unique name with the world until April.
In an interview with Essence, the couple opened up about the impact that internet bullies have on their lives and why it caused them to wait to reveal Wave’s name.
“We went through a lot of sad things when it comes to [our daughter] Kulture — terrible behavior that not even the older kids have ever been through.
“So many people will post mean, disgusting things, just to get a reaction from us…We want to protect our feelings, because we get very, very angry and upset,” explained Cardi.
