Twitter user calls Cardi B’s daughter autistic
Recently, a Twitter user told Cardi B to stop using Twitter and give attention to her daughter, who has autism. The WAP rapper did not like the comment and, in a Tweet, stated,
“My daughter is not autistic…You can’t call her ugly so y’all have to diagnose her with something. Go play in traffic bitch”
She was clearly angry over the user’s tweet and said,
“WHY YALL BRING UP KIDS FOR?” in another tweet.
Cardi B talks about receiving online hate directed toward her children
In the past, Cardi has talked about how the online criticism directed towards her children affects her and her husband, Offset. In an interview with Essence, the rapper stated,
“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,”

However, Cardi’s response was met with criticism from the fans, who felt that being called autistic was not an insult.
And even if she was autistic what’s the issue? Ppl who make tweets like that always make it seem as if autistic people are inferior when in fact they are some of the most smartest, creative people on earth.

I hope Cardi B ain’t implying there is something wrong with autistic kids, cus as an autism mom I’m thinking that could be misconstrued

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. 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.❤️
