Cardi B and Offset’s daughter Kulture just turned 2
Kulture Kiari Cephus celebrated her second birthday on July
10, and her parents went all out. Cardi B and Offset shared videos of her
lavish L.O.L.-themed party on Instagram, and the little girl was dressed to
impress in a hot pink tutu dress.
The party layout included inflatables, balloon archways, a
cotton candy machine, ball pit, and other kid-friendly activities. One of her
many gifts included a toddler-sized convertible, but there was one from her
father that attracted disapproval on social media.

a Birkin bag
A few days after Kulture’s birthday bash, Offset shared a video of himself surprising his daughter with another gift.
Tucked away inside a signature orange box was a mini Birkin bag, in hot pink of course. What struck some fans was Kulture’s reaction. You can check it out in the clip below.
However, the gesture prompted
some netizens to either criticize Offset’s spending habits or crack jokes about
what Kulture really wanted.
On Instagram, comments
such as “Cut the sh*t, for real. What a waste of money. Happy birthday and
everything, but, get her some toys and send her outside,” “That’s nice but she
was looking for a toy instead,” and “She don’t give a sh*t, threw it straight
down” were pouring in, but so were the compliments.
Some fans defended both
parents by stating it’s their money and they can spend it on their child how they

Cardi B hit back at naysayers
with a video
Cardi B responded to those who wanted to shame them over the Birkin bag, and hit Instagram and Twitter with a message. She explained that it’s not about a child wanting toys, it’s that her kids will be dressed “fly” like her when they leave the house.
“Kids go to restaurants. Kids go to fancy places. Celebrity kids, they go do red carpets, so if I’m fly and daddy’s fly, then so is the kid,” she said.
Fans again chimed in to
co-sign on Cardi B’s position. One person
tweeted, “The Kardashians spoil their kids and no one says a word but when
it comes to Cardi they be running their mouth.”
“When Kylie showed off Stormi’s Hermés bag collection, no one blinked and when
she said Birkin at 2 years old we all said aww. DJ Khalid bought Asad a diamond
Rolex at like 1 years old. Let’s keep the same energy for Kulture please. Cardi
and Offset can afford what they want.”
Others thought the
detractors were just jealous. “Not people on the internet mad as sh*t a 2 year
old got a birkin before they did,” read a
Cardi B felt the need to justify
this gift, but she also prefers that people mind their own business when it
comes to how she and Offset parent.
