Rihanna is not one to shy away from responding to her critics, from fans to large media organization.
Over the weekend a Dutch magazine printed an article calling the Barbadian pop star the “Ultimate N**ga B*tch.”
“She has street cred, she has a ghetto a*s and she has a golden throat. Rihanna, the good girl gone bad, is the ultimate n***ab***h and displays that gladly, and for her that means: what’s on can come off,” the magazine wrote.
Taking to Twitter Rihanna responds to Jackie Magazine, calling them a disgrace to modern society.
“@evajackie I hope u can read english, because your magazine is a poor representation of the evolutiono f human rights! I find you disrespectful, and rather desperate!! You ran out of legit, civilized information to print!”
“There are 1000’s of Dutch girls who would love to be recognized for contributions to your country, you could have given them an article. Instead, u paid to print one degrading an entire race! That’s your contribution to this world! To encourage segregation, to mislead the future leaders to act in the past!”
“You put two words together, @evajackie with the intent of abasement, that made no sense… “N**GA B**CH”?! Well with all respect, on behalf of my race, here are my two words for you… F**K YOU!” (Rihanna Twitter)
The editor of Jackie Magazine has responded to the outrage, back tracking on the comments, saying that they were a “joke.”
“While the author meant no harm – the title of the article was intended as a joke – it was a bad joke, to say the least,” Eva Hoeke wrote on the magazine’s Facebook page.
“And that slipped through my, the editor-in-chief’s, fingers. Stupid, painful and sucks for all concerned. I hope that you all believe there was absolutely no racist motive behind the choice of words.”
“It was naive to think that this was an acceptable form of slang. You hear it all the time on TV and radio, then your idea of what is normal apparently shifts – but it was especially misguided: there was no malice behind it.”
Still no APOLOGY.
