The raunchiness of “WAP” doesn’t end at it’s title, even the censored version will make you blush. The graphic nature of the track would undoubtedly win the approval of a in-her-prime Lil’ Kim. But some people are feeling some kind of way about the song’s sexually explicit lyrics and the visuals in the accompanying video, and the bad example Cardi and Meg are setting for young fans.
Politician, James P. Bradley, went so far to claim that “Cardi B & Megan Thee Stallion are what happens when children are raised without God and without a strong father figure.”
Political commentator DeAnna Lorraine, who ran for a seat in the U.S. House to representative from California earlier this year, wasn’t impressed, calling the song “disgusting & vile”. Ouch! Is that the ghost of C. Delores Tucker I hear?
Cardi B & Megan Thee Stallion are what happens when children are raised without God and without a strong father figure. Their new "song" The #WAP (which i heard accidentally) made me want to pour holy water in my ears and I feel sorry for future girls if this is their role model!

Cardi B & Megan Thee Stallion just set the entire female gender back by 100 years with their disgusting & vile “WAP” song.

If social media is any indication (Bradley and Lorraine not withstanding), “WAP” has been well received. Even Christina Aguilera and Viola Davis have approved.

Easy Christina, there’re kids in the room.
Controversial lyrics haven’t hurt the song’s popularity, in fact, it’s the No. 1 song on Apple in 20 countries, and it might be this year’s summer jam.
