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.


don't 4get that they r introducing the new world order


I like Rhiannas` music I think its` catchy and Her and Katy perry are besties! That word shouldnt` be used in a mag!


Oh wait she's still a Nigga Bitch!!!!!!!!


Heck I see Chris Brown never do a good job in shaping her, she's still a bitch!!!!!!


This was absolutely disrespectful to the African American race. That British lady doesn't even make sense with the bad words she has used!


Why does that girl always parade around half naked she brings most of the bad press on herself these kids don't have a clue


Think about it for a second people...popular culture and sheep who buy crap music condone ALL of the language written in this article and have for years. Why is anyone surprised that a foreign magazine would directly quote these terms and deem them usable and fair If Americans do themselves? The "artists" use this language all the time!!!! You can't claim foul when you, yourself are the perpetrator!!!!! Dumb asses!!!!!!!!


our children are all nazi so its ok if they read our posts. we are hitler youth and we are proud of it:D we are the superior arian race. the nigger biatch is what she is why are u guys so offended


I'm truly surprised and disgusted by the comments left here. I'm hoping that they are printed simply because the author of the comments wants to incite, and not because they truly feel that way. Regardless of how you feel about Rihanna, and I'm no fan, that in no way gives anybody the right to write something so degrading, not just to her but to an entire race. Too many young people read these magazines and they don't need to think that these words are normal. Granted, rappers and others who use those words are not helping the situation. So why add to it?


Seriously? Is this what the world is coming to now days? I would NEVER condone my family, friends or anyone I know to say those words to anyone as a joke. I honestly don't see anything funny about it. Being a minority myself, I think you people should seriously take a long look in the mirror. Because if anyone should be considered a "N---aB---h", I think It should be the previous people that posted comments on this article. Seriously, God doesn't like UGLY and that's exactly what you people are. Freakn UGLY!!! I pray that God has mercy on you all for the hateful things and UGLY jokes you all have. Also, I hope that NONE OF YOU HAVE CHILDREN AND THAT THEY NEVER READ YOUR UGLY COMMENTS, FOR THAT WILL BE THE START OF THE NEW KKK.

I get asked about it all the time and I’m like, You’re asking, but you know the answer. I don’t even like to address it anymore.

Sometimes you just need your privacy. But it comes with the territory. There's no privacy when you are out in the public.
