Cardi B's latest hit 'WAP' is continuing to make headlines even months after its release, but for very different reasons. Cardi has been facing backlash recently after she was seen trying to prevent her daughter, Kulture, from listening to the song.

It all started when Cardi posted an Instagram Live video after Christmas. In the clip, the rapper lip-syncs to the famously explicit song playing from her phone at home. A few seconds into the video, 2-year-old Kulture walks in from behind her. When she noticed her daughter, Cardi quickly stops the song, saying "no, no, no, no, no" and then takes a sip from her glass and tries to remain calm like nothing ever happened. 



 

Since then she has been receiving backlash from Twitter users who are calling her out for making a raunchy song that could have a potentially negative influence on children while at the same time not exposing her own daughter to such content. One angry user criticized her for pushing an agenda with the song, saying, "So ya daughter cant listen to it but everybody else’s daughter can? @iamcardib AW OKAY! Exactly what I been saying you have an agenda to push with that trash ass label your with. DISGUSTING."

Cardi fired back at the user and said that while she embraces her sexual persona, she is still just like "every other parent" who wants to protect their children. She added that she isn't obligated to be an artist like Jojo Siwa, a 17-year-old singer-songwriter whose musical material and presence mostly caters to younger audiences.

"Ya needs to stop with this already! I’m not jojosiwa! I don’t make music for kids I make music for adults," she replied, adding, "Parents are responsible on what their children listen too or see.I I’m a very sexual person but not around my child just like every other parent should be."



 

The topic has also become a subject of debate among fans. "No u need to understand that nowadays everybody can hear your music the smallest child if it has a phone so u are responsible for the children who listen to it cause u delivered it yeah the parents too but also you," says a fan to which another replied, "You can literally prevent children from accessing certain content on their phones, tablets and computers. Blaming Cardi for making music is like blaming the liquor store for selling alcohol. It's INTENDED for adults, but if your bad ass kids get it that's a YOU problem."

One fan wrote, "Can't use that excuse. This mf knows damn well kids listen to her music regardless of who her target audience is. She is very well aware that her music reaches children. The excuse of 'I doNt MakE muSiC foR cHildRen' isn't valid." Another said, "She mad at the wrong person. people allow their young children to listen to the music and be on them sites like tiktok & the kids expose themselves to that type of music and videos, the parents place it to correct their children. That’s why they have parental control."
