Cardi B has once again taken it upon herself to silence the haters…
The 27-year-old rapper came under fire after posting a video of her two-year-old daughter Kulture unwrapping her very own Hermes Birkin bag. (Rumor has it that Kulture’s particular bag costs around $8,000. Let’s just let that sink in for a moment…)
Naturally, Cardi B had something to say to those who criticized her and her husband Offset (real name Kiari Kendrell Cephus) for gifting their daughter with such an extravagant purchase – which, may we add, she hilariously dropped back inside the box just seconds after opening it!
“When celebrities buy their kids jewelry and designer sh*t, people be like, ‘Kids don’t care about that. They only care about toys and candy,’” she began.
“Yeah, they only care about toys and candy but the thing is the kids also go outside. You know what I’m saying?
“Kids go to restaurants, kids go to fancy places, celebrity kids, they go do red carpets.
“And if I’m fly and Daddy’s fly, then so is the kid. If I’m wearing Cha-nay-nay, my kid’s having the same same, you know what I’m saying?”
And she didn’t leave it there. Cardi B went on to explain that children don’t always make the best choices, especially in terms of outfit selection.
She also added that she would most likely still be criticized if she was dressed in head to toe designer pieces and her daughter wasn’t…
“It’s not up to what the kids like,” she added.
“If it was the kids, they’d be outside in diapers. Because if I was looking like a bad bitch, expensive bitch and I have my kid looking like a bum bum, then y’all would be talking sh*t.
“So I’m not mad that Daddy bought baby a Birkin. She’s gonna match Mommy.”
She concluded by referencing the fact that her daughter still prefers ‘L.O.L. Surprise!’ Dolls over the Hermes Birkin bag. And that’s fine because she has a very impressive collection of those too…
“Girl, she got the whole LOL target section,” she wrote on social media, alongside a video of some dollhouses.
“We can do light up shoes and princess dress all day in the house if we going out she gotta Match me! If I’m fly my kid too,” she said to another troll.
Are you outraged by the fact that Cardi B and Offset bought their daughter an $8,000 bag? Or are you just a little green with envy?
Do you agree that what Cardi B and Offset give to their own daughter is their – and only their – business?
