    In a now-deleted tweet, someone told Cardi, “Your daughter is literally autistic and you’re on stan twitter instead of making sure she’s not sticking her finger in outlets,” after Cardi posted a dancing video.

    "My daughter is not autistic," Cardi tweeted.

    Some people praised Cardi for clapping back. Cardi even quoted or retweeted a few:

    If Cardi responds to you that means YOU are in her mentions. And as a hater of Cardi why do you have her post notifications on, saying despicable sh*t in her quotes and replies and then cry when you get spanked?

    But others informed Cardi how having autism is not a bad thing, nor should it be used as an insult.

    @iamcardib You have every right to defend your child. I'm just trying to understand why saying a child is autistic would be used as an insult. If you don't understand anything pertaining to a child having autism you should know that they are gifted and amazing in their own individual way.❤️

    @iamcardib And even if she was autistic what’s the issue? Ppl who make tweets like that always make it seem as if autistic people are inferior when in fact they are some of the most smartest, creative people on earth.

    @iamcardib My daughter is actually autistic & there is nothing wrong with her at all. God made her perfect. It’s so sad ppl gotta try to talk bout innocent children.

    Dissing kids/using "autism" as a way to denote something negative or pejorative = NOT OK.

    Cardi hasn't commented further on the matter, but we'll update you if she does.
