Rihanna Responds To Jackie Mag Editor

rihanna-jane-575

Yesterday, our post about one very stupid magazine editor calling Rihanna one very stupid term blazed around the Internets and eventually made it’s way to Rih-Rih herself. If you thought Rihanna was going to take the high-road and stay mum while being called a “niggabitch,” obviously you’ve never met a Bajan woman, or any self-respecting feisty lady for that matter. Rihanna took to her Twitter account to call Jackie magazine editor Eva Hoeke directly:

Full Tweet: “@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,”

Full Tweet:  “@evajackie with the intent of abasement, that made no sense…”NIGGA BITCH”?!….Well with all respect, on behalf of my race, here are my two words for you…FUCK YOU!!!”

Well there you have it. When reviewing the very heated comments this morning, it was interesting to see how phrases like “she got what she deserved” or “what did she expect?” floating around, or lax explanations on how Jackie’s poorly constructed article could honestly be taken as a joke. Anyone else reminded of the excuses rapists give when asking why they’d violated a woman against her will? As content creators, it is our responsibility to have a global awareness and perspective — no matter who the subject is. So yes, Rihanna flaunts her curves — but no person, naked or fully clothed deserves to be called a “niggabitch.” And really … who says that?

    For “Jackie’s” editor in chief to say people joke and say N*ggerB*tch all the time, and that they as an organization really didn’t feel it was harmful to post is a testiment to how racist the entire world is towards anyone that has brown skin! You didn’t even bother to get Rihanna’s native country right. Shows you could care less about anyone who is Black whether from the islands or the states. And if “Jackie” is right in saying people use the term all the time, HOW SAD and RACIST are the circles “Jackie” and its employees travel in!!!

    The craziest thing is that if you omitted the niggabitch part, the article is still on that BS. basically boils down to Rihanna is a hot piece of ass who dresses like a Caribbean skank (country not important) so here are some other options for dressing your Dutch daughters. So which part was the joke again, Jackie?

  • sonny

    Rihanna should be proud that she is the ultimate ghetto nigabitch.Stand up and be proud or change your image!

  • Mialoedy

    Look you ignorant piece of shit, Rihanna neither is nor ever will be a “niggabitch”. i don’t give a flying fuck WHAT her public image is she has, she does not ever deserve to ever be called a racist and misogynistic slur.

  • Aiych

    Racist.

  • Pnita04

    Yes, call them out for what they are!!! I am so upset right now! who gives any human being the right to call another a racially slanted term??
    Get a life!

    The majority of Jackie’s writers are caucasian Dutch people. They have one fashion editor, who is of Filippino/Indian descent and some Turkish guy (don’t know what he does). Fashion people in the Netherlands are mostly caucasian and sadly kinda ignorant. I’ve read a book about this magazine. Written by an ex-employee.

    Here is what I think happened. And I am in no way making an excuse for any of the parties involved.My observation living in Europe is that non-blacks are so removed from any sort of mailciousness regarding race that they feel that they can talk like members of any said race.For those of you who think you can still use degrading racial terms innocently, there is no such thing. A word like n***** has been used by so many violently hateful people for so long, that only the violently hateful or the absolutely STUPID (…members of said race included) still think its funny to use these terms.Moral of the story……Political correctness is always boring, but Hateful adjectives are never funny.

    Attn: Eva~  wtf is wrong with you and your magazine?  Let me give you the real deal on ‘slang words in America’.  If you are not black, you may not say the n word, with an A or and ER on the end.  If you were here and said that, the black person closest to you would have most likely knocked your ass out.  mmmkay?  bye bye

    SHE IS A NIGGABITCH CAN’T STAND RIHANNA  GLAD MATT KEMP IS NOT WITH THIS NIGGABITCH ANYMORE

  • Canndigurl24

    I don’t like her either, but she still doesn’t deserve to be disrespected that way – that goes for all brown/white/whatever-skinned people.

  • Lacresha1977

    And you would think Europeans would know better with the influx of different cultures there. I think that she was just jealous of Black Women and our presence and our very being.

  • Lacresha1977

    And I bet you are a trash White/ Jew Bitch.

  • Lacresha1977

    Why not just ultimate ghetto bitch? Why you got to put the word nigga’ up in there? You are the ultimate stupid ghetto nigger bitch, too!!!!! Sonny is a gay ass name. You are a gay ass nigger bitch too!

  • Zenayonce

    She is a niggabitch you are a barbarian pig, who is jelous enough to right stupidity about a successful black girl like Rihanna.

  • Marcellahorne357

    keep it to urself, stupid

  • Leclapp

    Right, and also that she has street cred and ‘beats people up?’ Last I checked she was a domestic abuse victim…and had never been arrested. White girls dress up like tarts all the time and no one questions what is happening inside their actual vagina. It’s called being a pop star (unfortunately).

  • Semley

    Get over yourselves! No one would have thought twice about this had it been a black magazine and those n-words are used in black music and used by black entertainers every day. Another bogus and imaginary “racist” incident which never happened.

  • Laura Caseley

    Yeah, that’s not helping. Not at all.

  • Guest

    So what you’re saying is that all Black people are in the music business and are entertainers and therefore use the N-word on a regular basis to refer to themselves? Mind you when you say yes you are referring to all Black people that exist around the world past, present, and future.  So, this would mean that all White people hate Black people and want to kill and/or enslave them.  I mean if we are going to use gross generalization to excuse the offensive behaviors of others why not go all the way.

  • TEA

    The entire article reduces nigga bitches- ahem- black women to immodest and violent curvy women. Typicallll. Not to mention the whole classist “ghetto booty” part.  Good response, Rihanna. Black women reading this should go buy the “fuck you now manifesto” by lenelle moise on itunes. It’s good therapy for me, at least.

  • Joseph Scott

    Open warfare on a Black Beauty.  Hate the First Black Lady in the White House,  Cannot stand the truth about your desires for the physic of  Black women.  So attempt to defame,  debase and destroy her in every sick,  appalling distasteful jealous vengeful way you can.  Appeal to the racist disease that is spreading like a cancer.    You stoop so low as to print trash like this.  You  have shown a cheap and  trivial excuse for your own racist white supremacy disease.

  • Jessie

    Please don’t think that all Dutch people are like this magazine editor.. We aren’t all racists!

  • ilinca

    I’ve also spent time in Europe with white European people, and, as a white woman, have overheard a lot of racist shit. White Europeans are in no way removed from racism–especially, for example, towards Roma people. Even in Romania, where there is a low population of African immigrants/people of African descent, there are the same racist stereotypes that exist in the U.S. There’s no way that Europe, the birthplace of white supremacy, is removed from maliciousness regarding race. Maybe you just hung out with some especially nice people.

    Even black people shouldn’t be saying the N word
