Yesterday, we saw the wildly racist and offensive Dutch magazine article titled "De Niggabitch." We weren't the only ones who saw it. Rihanna got wind of the article and decided that she couldn't let this one slide, so she took to Twitter and let the editor-in-chief of the magazine know exactly how she felt. Here's what she said:
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..."NIGGA BITCH"?!....Well with all respect, on behalf of my race, here are my two words for you...FUCK YOU!!!
UPDATE: Parlour reports that the editor-in-chief of Jackie, the magazine that published the article, has resigned. In her letter of resignation she explains:
"Through the course of events, me and the publisher have concluded that because my credibility is now affected, it is better for all parties if I quit my function as editor-in-chief effective immediately.
"After putting my heart and soul into for Jackie for eight years, I realize that these errors — although not intended maliciously — are enough reason for leaving. ... I should have counted to ten before taking un-nuanced stands through social media channels."
