After news broke yesterday that Dutch publication, Jackie Magazine, referred to Rihanna and “other girls like her” as “N*&$aB*@&h,” Riri was more than outraged that Eva Hoeke, the magazine’s editor would print such words regarding an entire race. The world-famous pop star took to Twitter to confront Hoeke, and put her in her place.
Below is the English translation of Hoeke’s article, followed by Rihanna’s response via Twitter. One step back and two steps forward for Black women. Get ‘em Ri!
Article by Hoeke:
“N—A B—H. She has street cred, she has a ghetto ass and she has a golden throat. Rihanna, the good girl gone bad, is the ultimate n—a b—h 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.”
Rihanna’s Twitter Response:
“@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…”N—A B—H”?!….Well with all respect, on behalf of my race, here are my two words for you…F–K YOU!!!”
