Cardi B has responded to criticism from a fan who pointed out that she doesn't let her own daughter listen to her music.
According to Page Six, the 28-year-old's comments were spurred by her electrifying performance of her summer hit 'WAP' at the Grammy Awards last Sunday, which led to widespread debates about the appropriateness of her content on a mass public platform.
For example, conservative commentator Candace Owens decried Cardi's raunchy performance in an extended tirade in a segment on Fox News, which aired on Monday, March 15.
In it, Owens lambasted the artist's performance as overly-sexual and inappropriate, stating: "Parents should be terrified that this is the direction that our society is heading toward.
She continued: "Again, we are weakening America… We are setting the stage, and it feels like we are looking at corrosion like we are about to see the end of an empire."
This led to a heated exchange of views between Owens and Cardi, with both women declaring that they are pursuing legal action over the other.
One criticism Cardi has repeatedly faced is that her music is not suitable for children, especially young girls.
This has been provoked by a video the rapper posted to her Instagram Stories back in January, which saw Cardi turning off a video of her NSFW song when her two-year-old daughter Kulture entered the room from behind her.
A number of people were surprised to learn that Cardi isn't willing to let her own daughter hear her own lyrics, and they were even more shocked when she defended censoring them from her child in a tweet made on January 5.
The rapper tweeted: "I don’t make music for kids I make music for adults. Parents are responsible on what their children listen to or see. I’m a very sexual person but not around my child just like every other parent should be. [sic]"
One fan wasn't impressed by Cardi's perceived hypocrisy then took to the comments of one of the rapper's most recent posts to make their feelings known.
The commenter wrote: "But how is this she empowering women with her music but doesn't let her daughter listen?? Don't you wanna empower your daughter also?? [sic]"
In response to this, Cardi herself then replied in the comments: "My daughter doesn't need to listen to music to be empowered neither should your children.
"The only way to empower your kids is by talking to them, boost their confidence and making sure they get a good education.
"I never ever said that WAP was made to empower women, I'm just a freaky person and this is not the first sex song ever made. Stop expecting celebs to raise your kids."
Cardi doubled-down on her defense of her Grammys performance in a recent tweet, in which she wrote: "The Grammies are PG. That means parental guidance. Meaning is your job like it is to mine to my child to monitor what they watch my performance was around 10 pm on a Sunday.
"Your child should be in bed ready for school the next day why are they up watching Wap? [sic]"
