Mariah Carey says her 9-year-old son Moroccan has already experienced racism.
While appearing on “Watch What Happens Live” on Thursday, the pop queen brought up a recent incident involving her son while discussing how prejudice impacted her own childhood.
“Rocky just got bullied the other day by a white supremacist person that he thought was his friend,” Carey revealed. “It’s, like, insane. So this is the world we live in.”
Moroccan — nicknamed Rocky — and his twin sister, Monroe, are Carey’s children with her second husband, Nick Cannon. They finalized their divorce in 2016.
The “Emotions” crooner, 50, also told host Andy Cohen that she has been reading excerpts from her recently released memoir, “The Meaning of Mariah Carey,” to her children in order to help guide them.
“I’m reading chapters to them that are helping to illustrate my encounters with racism, and how they can then have a greater understanding, and ultimately a greater reservoir with which to deal with the situation itself,” Carey explained.
One painful incident that she read to her daughter involved a group of girls that Carey believed were her friends but instead bullied her.
“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,’” Carey said.
