SLAMS 'Racist' Dutch Magazine

for 'Degrading' Article

12/21/2011 2:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

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.

No law exists prohibiting the use of the term. It's not used here (due to censoring by wussy staff of TMZ). As black rappers use it extensively, they obviously don't find any objections to it, unless a non-black person uses it..oh wait, that would be racist and we all know blacks are not racist.

Just reading all the comments are very hurtful,sexist and yes racist. All thi*****e from cowards hiding behind computers. We must get over our faults and question wrong views and thoughts of each other in this country and aboard.

i thought when it ended with an A it was in a good way? oh, only when black people say it? Get over it!!! I'm black and sick and tired of the double standard. I personally thought she would be ok with being the A and not the ER!! I don't think that lady should have had to resign over this nonsense. Why not be offended over the word b*tch?

Rap culture isn't a reflection of black culture. Just because rappers decide to use the "N" word in there song does not mean the entire black community in the world is for using the word. I am black. I personally hate the N word. I wish people would stop using it. But realistically you can't tell people what to say & how to talk.

Maybe she needs to stop acting and dressing the part before she decides who's degrading whom.

@Buckaroobonzai No I think the article is degrading a race when using the n word. I wonder what makes her a N- bitch or a bitch at all. No examples given, just a bunch of haters for her scantilly clad outfits. I never hear you use the N word and she was not born in the ghettos of america. He intro to the ghetto life was in the Us though.

Sorry to say this, mostly the ghetto people love to read negative stuff like this, then laugh. Just like the amount of hate Beyonce gets for small things. Jay on the other hand, gets no hate. Blacks are such a damaged people.
