Mariah Carey’s nine-year-old son Moroccan was recently bullied by a “white supremacist”.
The 50-year-old singer – who also has Monroe, nine, with ex-husband Nick Cannon – has revealed that one of her children has been subjected to bullying by a racist, describing the incident as “insane”.
She shared: “Rocky just got bullied the other day by a white supremacist person that he thought was his friend. It’s like, insane. So, this is the world we live in.”
Mariah also admitted that racism has been a difficult issue for her ever since she’s been aware “that there was such a thing as race”.
She said: “I was aware so early on is that it became a subject of humiliation for me, as a child.”
Mariah – who was born to a black father and a white mother – opened up in her memoir,’The Meaning of Mariah Carey’, about an incident when a group of girls locked her in a bedroom and racially abused her.
She wrote: “The venom and hate with which these girls spewed this … chant was so strong, it quite literally lifted me out of my body.
“I was disorientated and terrified and I thought that maybe, if I held on and just kept crying, surely a grown-up would come and stop the assault. But no-one came.”
The blonde beauty has recently been sharing her experiences of racism with her daughter Monroe.
The singer – who was married to Nick from 2008 until 2016 – told “Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen”: “I let her hear that. And it was really sweet, she goes, ‘Mommy, those girls, they feel so bad now. I bet they wish they could be your friend.'”
