Dutch Fashion Magazine Calls Rihanna "The Ultimate N---a Bitch"

by at . Comments

For reasons unknown, the Dutch magazine Jackie recently referred to pop star Rihanna in an article as "the ultimate n---a bitch." The singer was not happy.

"Well with all respect, on behalf of my race, here are my two words for you..." Rihanna tweeted yesterday at the fashion publication's editor, Eva Hoeke.

"F--K YOU!!!" she exclaimed ... dashes not included.

Prior to that concise sentiment, Rihanna had posted this lengthy missive: "@evajackie 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 absolutely no sense... 'N---A BITCH'?!"

The not-at-all amusing attempt at slang and "hey, girlfriend!" appreciation was not intended to be racist or degrading, according to the magazine.

"She has street cred, she has a ghetto ass and she has a golden throat," read the Jackie story, titled "De N---abitch," per the mag's website.

"Rihanna, the good girl gone bad, is the ultimate n---a bitch and displays that gladly, and for her that means: what's on can come off."

"If that means she'll be on stage half naked, then so be it."

Hoecke later posted an apology on Facebook, apparently in response to a number of outraged comments. Here is what she had to say about it:

"We are of course very fed up over this and especially very shocked. While the author meant no harm - the title of the article was intended as a joke - it was a bad joke, to say the least. And that slipped through my, the editor-in-chief's, fingers."

"Stupid, painful and sucks for all concerned. The author has been addressed on it, and now I can only ensure that these terms will no longer end up in the magazine."

"Furthermore I hope that you all believe there was absolutely no racist motive behind the choice of words. It was stupid, it was naive to think that this was an acceptable form of slang - you hear it all the time on tv and radio, then your idea of what is normal apparently shifts - but it was especially misguided: there was no malice behind it."

Today, on a Dutch website, Hoecke announced her resignation.

I really don't understand people. Somehow calling someone a nigga (which in my country is just an adjective for your color tone) is a huge offense that has to be censored. But calling someone a bitch isn't? You seriously need to sort your priorities.

Misha where you from? I think you're to naive and generalizing when you say all Dutch are racist. Rihanna can act very righteous by a tweet as the one she send. But the dead animals she is wearing around her neck cant say what they want and think. And besides black people can make jokes about our skinny white asses and we all laugh. Because it is funny or because we feel guilty for we making them our slaves 140 years ago?

Rihanna is the correct spelling...

Rhiana is a damn good singer, but she needs to tone her act down, I think it's too raunchy, too provocative, too slutty. I don't agree with the magazine about the racist label. There are so many people in this country that are just looking for an excuse like this post to act like crap and talk sh!t because they can remain anonymous!!!
