A Dutch magazine writer made a huge mistake…thinking it was cool to call Rihanna a Ni**a Bi**h…what a joke! The editor has apologized to but Rihanna took to Twitter Â and made it clear that she was not pleased!
This is what the article said in the Dutch magazine, Jackie Â according to Bossip,
She has street cred, she has a ghetto ass and she has a golden throat.Â Rihanna, the good girl gone bad, is the ultimate n***ab***h and displays that gladly, and for her that means: whatâ€™s on can come off. If that means sheâ€™ll be on stage half naked, then so be it. But Dutch winters arenâ€™t like Jamaican ones, so pick aÂ 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 letâ€™s hope she wonâ€™t beat anybody up at daycare.
What were they thinking! Rihanna even took to Twitter toÂ publiclyÂ bash the mag,
@evajackie I hope u can read english, because your magazine is a poor representation of the evolution of 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 their 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,with the intent of abasement, that made no sense…”NI**A BI**H”?!….Well with all respect, on behalf of my race, here are my two words for you…F**K YOU!!!
The Magazine has since apologized via Facebook!
“First: thanks for all your responses. We are of course very fed up over this and especially very shocked. However I’m glad that we’re engaging in a dialogue on this page â€” not everybody does that. Thanks for this. Other than that I can be brief about this: this should have never happened. Period,” Hoeke wrote.
“While the author meant no harm â€” the title of the article was intended as a joke â€” it was a bad joke, to say the least. And that slipped through my, the editor-in-chief’s, fingers. Stupid, painful and sucks for all concerned. The author has been addressed on it, and now I can only ensure that these terms will no longer end up in the magazine,” the statement continued.
“Furthermore I hope that you all believe there was absolutely no racist motive behind the choice of words. It was stupid, it was naive to think that this was an acceptable form of slang â€” you hear it all the time on tv and radio, then your idea of what is normal apparently shifts â€” but it was especially misguided: there was no malice behind it. We make our magazine with love, energy and enthusiasm, and it can sometimes happen that someone is out of line. And then you can only do one thing: apologize. And hope that others wish to accept it. From the bottom of my heart I say it again: we never intended to offend anyone. And I mean that.”
Update: The editor resigned according to The YBF.
“Because of the enormous pressure from social media, I can promise improvement in terms of language used in future issues of Jackie. Previously, I offered rectification. As I now come to the conclusion that rectification is not the right solution, I am departing.
“The term ‘nigga bitch” has come over from America and we have only this to describe this particular style of clothes that we can try to interpret.
“After eight years, with my heart and soul, I have worked for Jackie. I realize that these errors – although no malicious intent – is a reason to leave.”
