Cardi B is speaking out after comments about her family.

On Friday, the “Shake It” rapper, 29, spoke to a Twitter user who told him to quit the app and take care of his kids, saying his daughter, Kulture, who will be 4 in July, is autistic.

Cardi responded to the Twitter user, writing in part, “My daughter is not autistic…You can’t call her ugly so you have to diagnose her with something.”

“WHY ARE YOU RAISING CHILDREN?” she also tweeted.

While many fans came to Cardi’s defense and endorsed her decision to address the social media user, others pointed out that calling someone autistic shouldn’t be considered a insult.

“You have every right to defend your child. I’m just trying to understand why saying a child has autism would be used as an insult,” wrote a Twitter user. “If you don’t understand anything about an autistic child, you should know that they are gifted and amazing in their own way.❤️”

Another added“I have grandsons with autism. They are my heart. I don’t know what made people call your daughter autistic, but that’s nothing to be ashamed of.”
