Iggy Azalea is not here for social media thugs bashing her 1-year-old son Onyx. The 31-year-old rapper recently shared that she will no longer be sharing pictures of the son she shares with rapper Playboi Carti. The Australian-born rapper posted an image of her son on Instagram this week. The tyke was crawling on the floor playing with toys in a green dinosaur costume. “His outfit of choice today,” wrote the sentimental mom with a wide-eye cry face emoji. Unfortunately, the “I Am The Stripclub” rapper was inundated with hate over her son’s choice of clothing. This sadly led to her cutting the world off from enjoying her sweet boy. “I’ve decided I won’t be posting about onyx or sharing images online anymore. Y’all not about to be out here playing with my baby on my watch, nope!”

Kids Will Be Kids
Actual parents know that you choose your battles especially when it comes to kids. An outfit is the least of their problems and it may be safe to say that Iggy would agree. “Imagine being so miserable that you bully a one-year-old child for picking his own outfit,” she wrote in response to followers asking her why she hasn’t dressed her son better for the photos. “Y’all so corny and bored and it’s really a d*** shame.” The rapper fended off haters as they asked her “where Carti is” and why he doesn’t dress his child in better clothing.
The Hate Never Stops
In her son’s defense, the rapper commented on her own post, “My child is not a sub-brand for his father’s fans to obsess over or clown on because the reality is that y’all don’t like his mom,” she clapped back. “You think it’s cute to be rude about a baby and what funny stuff he wears,” she asked. She made sure to let fans know they can catch these hands over her son. “Know that I will smack you in person, and so will his dad.” Yikes! Mama bear has her claws out. As Iggy said, she is used to the hate she receives, it happens quite a bit online in regards to almost everything she does. Recently, the rapper dropped a few singles and spoke about her upcoming album that could potentially be her last for some time, she received love but also a lot of hate. The comment section had followers clashing over everything from the lyrics to the visuals, to Iggy’s darker than normal skin tone.

Of All The People To Come To Her Defence
Iggy apparently has an ally in fellow rapper Safaree Samuels. The Love & Hip Hop franchise star jumped in the comments section to address followers constantly overstepping the boundaries. “Don’t post him,” demanded the rapper. “We live in a sick sad world. Where innocent kids are tainted with evil eyes.” Samuels also posts and deletes photos of his own children but that is usually due to his own personal drama. Iggy didn’t respond to Samuels’s comment but fans sure had a great time asking the rapper all sorts of intrusive questions like why he wasn’t “visiting his son” referring to the rapper’s newborn son being in the NICU since birth.
More To Come
Iggy doesn’t have time for the drama which could be why she cut the hate short immediately. The semi-retired rapper has a lot on her plate since music will not her main source of income anymore. She has dropped a new fragrance with more to come and the rapper has also mentioned in an Instagram post that she has other “projects” in the works that will be revealed over time.
