Author and political commentator Candace Owens called the Grammy performance an “attack on American values, American tradition.” Owens also accused the rappers of “actively trying to make children aspire to things that are grotesque.”
She commented that “I don’t make music for kids I make music for adults. Parents are responsible on 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.”
Cardi B added that “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.”
