Rihanna Slams Dutch Magazine Jackie for Racial Slurs

Posted by & filed under The Daily Dose (Entertainment News).


Rihanna has taken the Dutch magazine Jackie to task for an inappropriate fashion piece it published that called the pop star, among other things, the “N” word. The full excerpt of the piece is here, including editor-in-chief Eva Hoeke’s apology letter, which says that the writer had no racist or malicious motives in choosing that term.

Rihanna clearly wasn’t satisfied with Hoeke’s letter and headed straight to Twitter to air her frustrations. “I find you disrespectful, and rather desperate,” she wrote. “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!” [sic]

Check out Rihanna’s tweets below. How do you think Jackie and Eva Hoeke will recover from this PR nightmare?
