Cardi B called out people who were criticizing a little boy who played with a toy kitchen set, calling them “so close minded and dumb.”
Someone posted a picture of the tyke playing with a toy pot, writing that “People on Facebook are having a full blown gender war about this photo.”
The Grammy-winning hip hop artist decided to throw in her two cents, bringing up child YouTube star Ryan’s World. That is not the same child in the photo.
“The fact that Ryans world the little boy from YouTube make millions and he have a kitchen set like this and y’all worry about if this gay or not,” she wrote, using the facepalm emoji. “Stop being so close minded and dumb.”

Cardi’s frustration inspired positive responses from her fans.
“Mama, how do I make eggs! I don’t wanna burn them.”Thinking , damnit I should’ve learned how to cook for myself when I was younger. 🤷🏾♀️🤷🏾♀️🤷🏾♀️

I bought my son a kitchen set when he turned 3. We basically played with it for over a year. He liked cooking me food and he laughed when I acted like it was bad 🤣 Its about memories and fun.

My son has dolls, monster trucks, a toy kitchen, superheroes etc. he plays with everything. He asks for his nails painted pink like mama and then runs around in the mud with the dog catching bugs. People need to let kids be kids and stop pushing their insecurities and bs on them
