Watch: Mariah Carey discussing son being bullied by a white supremacist
Pop legend Mariah Carey has said her 9-year-old son was the victim of bullying from a "white supremacist he thought was his friend".
The Heartbreaker singer shares twins Monroe and Moroccan with US TV and music star Nick Cannon.
Carey appeared on Watch What Happens Live recently to discuss her memoir, The Meaning Of Mariah Carey.
Talking with host Andy Cohen, she told how Moroccan, affectionately known as Rocky, has been subjected to bullying.
The Grammy winner said: “Rocky just got bullied the other day by a white supremacist person that he thought was his friend.
“It's like, insane. This is the world we live in.”
Carey, who is mixed race, went on to talk about how racism impacted her own childhood.
She added: “It's been a struggle for me since I was aware that there was such a thing as race.
"And the only reason I was aware so early on was because it became a subject of humiliation for me as a child.”
Carey revealed she is using her own experiences, written down in her memoir, to help her children deal with encountering racism.
She said: "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."
The singer also addressed racism from her childhood during an appearance on The Daily Show With Trevor Noah earlier this month.
Responding to an excerpt from her memoir where she recalls being repeatedly called the n-word after being locked in a room at a birthday party.
Speaking to host Noah, she said: "Yes, that was a very harrowing experience. I don't know that I ever felt the need to talk to anybody about it because I don't feel like I'm the only person in the world that ever went through something traumatic. But that was very specific.”
