Cardi B Slams Back At Troll Who Claimed Her Daughter Kulture Has Autism
Cardi B, an American rapper, responded to a social media troll who claimed Kulture, her 3-year-old kid, has autism.
As her daughter Kulture, who will turn 4 in July, has autism, the Twitter user had advised her to stop using the blue app and focus on her children.
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 with 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.”
Offset and Cardi’s husband share custody of Kulture. The couple, who married in a private ceremony in September 2017, welcomed their son Wave in the same month, but they didn’t reveal his unusual name to the public until April.
The couple discussed how internet bullies had affected their lives in an interview with Essence, explaining why they had postponed revealing 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.
