Amber Rose leads a very public life. The woman who first burst on the scene as Kanye West’s muse has gone on to become an author, businesswoman, and outspoken advocate for women’s rights. While Rose is extremely open-minded, there’s one thing she won’t stand for: people taking jabs at her young son.
Earlier this week, Rose shared a too-cute video of her 5-year-old son Sebastian getting a surprise package from his favorite singer, Taylor Swift. Sebastian happens to be a card-carrying member of the Swifties, the singer’s dedicated fan club, so she sent him a special delivery that included tickets to an upcoming show.
The adorable video has been viewed almost 2 million times, but unfortunately, all the reactions haven’t been positive. Some took it upon themselves to deride Sebastian for his love of the “Shake It Off” singer and question his sexuality, which at just 5-years-old, is ridiculous.
And Rose wasn’t having it.
“Shout out to all the hyper masculine men and ignorant dumbass women that will call a five-year-old gay for liking Taylor Swift. This is why young kids kill themselves and this is also why our society is so f–ked up,” she wrote on Instagram.
“Liking a certain type of music will not make you ‘pick’ your sexuality,” the devoted mom continued. “We allow him to be himself. He can listen to whatever music he likes, he can like whatever color he wants and we let him be passionate about whatever his little heart desires.”
In addition to giving her son the freedom to express himself however he wants, Rose and ex-husband, rapper Wiz Khalifa, don’t force Sebastian to conform to any preconceived notions of how boys should act.
“We don’t make our son live by society norms. That’s why he’s so special. Let’s do better for the next generation people. Grow the f–k up and teach ur kids to love and not hate,” Rose wrote. “Regardless if he’s gay or straight when he gets older, he will be around the most amazing loving people that will support him no matter what.”
This isn’t the first time Rose had to set people straight about her son. After letting him dye his hair blond last month, the mama bear had to deal with those who questioned her decision.
“Love your children unconditionally and let them be creative,” Rose said back then. “This world will be a better place.
