Rihanna

SLAMS 'Racist' Dutch Magazine

for 'Degrading' Article

Rihanna
unloaded on the editor of a popular Dutch magazine this week -- furious over an article that referred to her as a "N**gaB*tch."

In the original article that ran in "Jackie" magazine -- editor Eva Hoeke approved copy that read, "Rihanna, the good girl gone bad, is the ultimate n**gab*tch and displays that gladly."

Rihanna was PISSED -- and responded with a Twitter message to Hoeke which read, "I hope u can read english, because your magazine is a poor representation of the evolution of human rights!"

She added, "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!"

Hoeke has since resigned from her position -- and the magazine says she has been "taunted and threatened" after referring to the slur as a "joke" in what's being considered a half-assed apology.

The magazine has invited Rihanna to talk things out with them for an article in the next issue. Don't hold your breath, Jackie.

The use of such words is an obvious attempt to sell products.
It is unfortunate that Rhianna has chosen to promote herself as raunchy and classless. She makes her living at the same low level as those who insult her for money. You run with vermin, you get treated as such.

She never posted angry tweets about a person who choked her out and repeatedly punched her in the face.

irony of ironies. Broad goes about with a necklace with "c u next tuesday" on it (if you know what i mean) refers to herself and other blacks with the n perjorative, s.l.u.t.s. it up on video, lets her s&m sex life be public ... and wonders why a magazine would go with the flow on this?

If it walks like a duck and talks like a duck it IS a duck....She makes anyone look good. She is nothing more than disgusting along with a few other singers and celebrities use sex to sell even to our children.Rihanna your FAR from classy..dont go away mad just go away!

*White guy saying alert* Whats good for the goose is good for the gander.
If the word is so offensive, then she and the other members of the black community should stop using it also.
It seems ok for them to call themselves or each other that, or to call a white peson white trash, but they get defensive when it goes the other way.
It don't work like that. (or at least it shouldn't)

she's insulted by the N word but wore a necklace with the world "C*NT" on it..in a church nonetheless..
both are degrading terms but if she's going to disrespect herself, what is she going to expect from other people?

I'm from Brazil! And Rihanna're right!, Who wrote the question that was somewhat offensive in his words, being an article of fashion, the word *****bitch together is heavy, and also had other words in the text I found in a pejorative tone !, I like Rihanna because it is one of the few superstar personality and opinion!, most are standard ..

The Dutch magazine is right on the money, its wonderful to see other countries say it like it is. I wonder if they mentioned that this B**** B**** does not sing live she is a phony lip syncher like Lopez and Spears and Madonna and hides her act behind dancers

I agree this is not a pleasant word but Rihanna is a hypocrite because she uses this word on her own twitter. Also I'd assume that someone who wears a c*nt necklace is not so easily offended by words.
