Black Twitter roasted rapper Latto for explaining her “sexually liberated” lifestyle to a 9-year-old fashion reporter.
Latto, formerly Miss Mulatto, made the cringe-worthy comments in a NYFW interview with 9-year-old Taylen Biggs for Harper’s Baazar magazine.
“How would you describe your personal style?” the adorable child asked the 23-year-old “Big Energy” rapper.
“I think I’m authentic. I think I give modern, sexually liberated woman. You’ll learn about that later,” Latto told the minor.

Social media collectively agreed that it was the wrong message for a grown up to give a 9-year-old girl.
One Twitter user wrote, “Love Latto but this wouldn’t have been my answer for a little girl.”
Another person wrote:
“This was very inappropriate. An ‘I’m a very authentic and free-spirited person’ would’ve sufficed for a child that age. People no longer understand that there’s a time and place for everything.”
Latto’s critics forget that she was an innocent minor herself when she sacrificed her childhood for a rap career.
Latto was the winner of Jermaine Dupri‘s Lifetime reality series The Rap Game, but she declined to sign a record label deal afterwards.
