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.

I dont think it was right for that paper to call her that name but maybe they thought she wouldnt take offense since she wears a necklace with the word c@@t around her neck

She was never a good girl anyway. A portrait of low self esteem to let a man beat you up...

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.

Very Well Said, Mia!!! RiRi has chosen to "degrade" her "professional" persona in order to make "TONS OF MONEY" and now she wants to "BOOHOO" because some "obscure" European magazine has chosen to describe her in an extremely "DISRESPECTFUL" manner. Anyone who publicly wears very "PROFANE" jewelry can't expect to be held up as a "PARAGON OF VIRTUE". However, as an African American, I do "RESPECT" her response to this "INSULT" because the N-word has always had a very negative connotation. Many African Americans "DON'T" approve of how it's "casually" thrown around by many younger people because one doesn't know whether people are "LAUGHING AT YOU" as opposed to "WITH YOU"!!! I'm sure Eva Hoeke "KNEW" she was "PLAYING WITH FIRE" but was somewhat "NAIVE" to think she wouldn't get "BURNED"!!! White people who "carelessly" use "racial or ethnic" slurs ALWAYS GET HAMMERED BY EVERYONE INCLUDING THEIR OWN PEOPLE!!! YOU JUST CAN'T FIX "STUPID"!!!

Speaking as a black man , but primarily an adult I have to state that the comment made in the magazine is very accurate. Rhianna as usual wants to play victim when she is called on her bogus behavior. She is phony , a simple sad cliche and yes she is your standard ***** bitch. She can never accept responsibility for her actions, and she is always willing to play a role for the moment as long as there is some kind of gain. She is a tired sycophantic cliche.She is nothing but an opportunist at the end of the day with no genuine emotion or anything valid to offer anyone. I'm glad someone called her on exactly what she is.Rhianna needs to realize that her image and her behavior is more detrimental to young girls than any adult statement.

Bet money that none of you would call Rihanna, or any other person of African descent, that word to their face(s).

Why try to be politically correct? Just try to be nice to all people. Frigging hate this political correctness, grew up and went to college in the 60's and the same s**t went on then, as well as not tolerating anyone who disagreed with you. By the way, I was somewhat of a radical liberal then (moderate now) and this stuff disgusted me then and it does to this day. Show compassion people, that is all that is needed,

So, let me get this straight...the girl can defend wearing a necklace that says C$!T on it in a CHURCH no less, but someone else expressing his/her beliefs (albeit equally as inappropriate) is not OK with her...hmmmmm.

I bet Rihanna refers to her friends as the N word... but it's SO wrong when someone else says it. It's said ALL the time in songs... but if a white person is to ever say it... oh no way. I think THAT'S racist!

Once again, it's the old "words can't hurt" deal. I can understand why Rihanna would be upset, but the fact is that most people on Earth call each other names at some point or another. Some names are culturally harmless and others are culturally harmful. No matter what, you need to know for yourself who you are and love yourself. If you do that, it really doesn't matter what people call you, only what you answer to.
