When: December 2011
For some incomprehensible reason, the Dutch magazine Jackie referred to Rihanna as "N**** Bitch" in the title of a piece that described her style. The translation of the original article read, "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***abitch and she displays that gladly..."
An editor from Jackie quickly issued an apology on the mag's Facebook page, saying the author "meant no harm — the title of the article was intended as a joke — it was a bad joke, to say the least." Brushing it off as a joke only indicated the pevalent ignorance at Jackie, and eventually the editor resigned. Shaking our damn heads at the dumb ratchetness that the magazine committed, but Rihanna's response to the whole thing was epic and what we've come to expect and love from the star who last gave a fuck in circa 2002.
