Cardi B is criticized over her video where she is dancing and singing along to "WAP," and turns off the song as soon as her little one walks in. She responded: "I'm a very sexual person but not around my child just like every other parent should be... Stop expecting celebs to raise your kids."
Cardi B has reacted to the backlash she faced from the people following her performance at the Grammy Awards.
This isn't the first time Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion's hit single has come under fire. Cardi has repeatedly faced criticism that her music is not suitable for children, especially young girls.
The 28-year-old rapper soared the temperature as she danced with fellow artist Megan Thee Stallion, 26, to their hit track 'WAP'. It led to widespread debates about the appropriateness of her content on a mass public platform.
The two rappers put on an X-rated performance on the stage, as they danced on a pole and stunningly laid on a bed.
However, their moves angered the parents who were watching the show, with many viewers criticizing the awards show for airing their performance.
A commentator on Fox News, Candace Owens, decried Cardi's raunchy performance in an extended tirade in a segment that aired on Monday, March 15.

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."
A Twitter user @Mo_fierce retweeted a video of Cardi dancing and singing along to "WAP," before turning off the song as soon as Kulture, her two-year-old daughter, walks in the room.
"So ya daughter cant listen to it but everybody else's daughter can ?" @Mo_fierce wrote. She also tagged Cardi in the tweet and accused the rapper of having an "agenda" to promote her record label.
The "Money" rapper responded in a separate tweet, begging fans to "stop with this already" as she doesn't have the same brand as someone like JoJo Siwa, a 17-year-old dancer, and YouTuber.
One follower asked why she doesn't allow her two-year-old daughter Kulture to listen to her music. "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??"
Responding to the critics, Cardi wrote: "I don't make music for kids I make music for adults. Parents are responsible [for] 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.
"She went on to describe: "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."
The rapper added: "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."
