Jackie Magazine V. Rihanna
Wow… I am so speechless. This Dutch fashion magazine made this statement while doing a style article on the mega star Rihanna.
“She has street cred, she has a ghetto ass and she has a golden throat. Rihanna, the good girl gone bad, is the ultimate niggabitch and displays that gladly, and for her that means: what’s on can come off. If that means she’ll be on stage half naked, then so be it. But Dutch winters aren’t like Jamaican ones, so pick a clothing style in which your daughter can resist minus ten. No to the big sunglasses and the pornheels, and yes to the tiger print, pink shizzle and everything that glitters. Now let’s hope she won’t beat anybody up at daycare.”
Let’s take this apart piece by piece. The title says it all… De Niggabitch. What is a “niggabitch” you may ask? It is supposedly a female who has street cred or a black female. Not only is this desrespectful to Rihanna by calling her “ghetto” they also try and say that she is violent when they say “…let’s hope she won’t beat anybody up at daycare.”
My question is why is this language needed? If you are going to discuss her fashion taste why to you need to call her names and through accusations at her about her character. If it’s about fashion keep it on the fashion! The editor- in- chief did send out an apology that was pretty half ass. She then continues in the same issue she sends out the apologies, a writers uses “niggabitch” in another article.
Why can’t females lift each other up?
