Amber Rose is defending her 5-year-old son from bullies who mocked the boy for listening to Taylor Swift.

On Tuesday, Rose, 34, shared an Instagram and Twitter video of her young son Sebastian, whom she shares with rapper Wiz Khalifa, opening a package sent personally by Swift.

“I have a surprise for you. Ready?” Rose says as the boy opens a box filled with paraphernalia and concert tickets.

“Really?” says the boy excitedly. “For real? This is going to be so exciting!”

Unfortunately, adult commenters mocked the kindergartener for his taste in music, writing #Stopemasculatingtheblackman,” and calling him “gay,” according to People.

However, Rose had plenty of defenders, including Twitter user ToriaBombshell, who wrote: “So sad [they’re] calling Amber rose son gay who is a CHILD because he listens to Taylor swift …..its just the type of world we live in the generation it self alone...”



The star addressed the trolls in Instagram Stories, writing, “Shout-out to all the hyper masculine men and dumb ass women that will call a 5-year-old gay for liking Taylor Swift,” as well as, “this is why young kids kill themselves. And this is also why our society is so f***ed up.”


She added, “Liking a certain type of music will not make you ‘pick’ your sexuality, you dumb f***,” and “PS: My son just got accepted into the most prestigious private school in Los Angeles because he’s smart as f*** and creative as f*** like his parents.”

Rose 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.”

She concluded, “We don’t make our son live by society norms that’s why he’s so special,” adding, “Let’s do better for the next generation people. Grow the f*** up and teach your kids to love and not hate,” and “P.P.S: 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.”

According to E! News, Sebastian has memorized all the words to Swift’s hit song, “Look What You Made Me Do.” As proof, Rose posted an adorable video in October of the boy singing along to the song. “He loves him some Taylor Swift,” she captioned the post. 

Rose is definitely doing parenting right.
