Cardi B has defended buying a Birkin bag for her two-year-old daughter Kulture.
The rapper and her husband Offset celebrated their daughter’s birthday this week, and gifted her a very lavish present.
Sharing a video of him gifting the bag on Instagram, Offset wrote: “Late is better than never. I Birkin my baby.”
Fans were quick to criticise the couple for their choice of gift, with one commenting: “You should have donated that 10k you spent on that Birkin Bag to a charity of your choice in Kulture’s name. A two year old doesn’t even know what she has, she wants a regular toy.”
Cardi later responded to the backlash on her Instagram Story, writing: “I know when celebrities buy their kids jewellery and designer s***, people be like ‘kids don’t care about that, they only care about toys and candy.’”
“But the thing is, kids also go outside. Kids go to restaurants, kids go to fancy places. Celebrity kids, they go and do red carpets.”
“And if I’m fly, and daddy’s fly, then so is the kid,” she continued, “If I’m wearing Cha-nay-nay (Chanel), my kid’s having the same thing.”
“It’s not up to what the kids like. If it was the kids, they’d be outside in diapers. No, cause if I was looking like a bad bitch, expensive bitch, and I had my kid looking like a bum bum, then y’all would be talking s***.”
“So, I’m not mad that daddy bought baby a Birkin. She gonna match mommy,” Cardi finished her story.
Earlier this week, Kylie Jenner also received backlash for buying her daughter Stormi an expensive Louis Vuitton bag.
The 22-year-old gifted her two-year-old child a mini handbag worth over $1,000 – and fans were not happy about the purchase.
