Social Network Rallies Behind Blue Ivy Carter After Writers Attack Her Appearances
It’s 2020 and children still aren’t off limitations? It looks like two writers are finding out a hard lesson after taking to social networks to make thoughtless comments about and’s 7-year-old child,. It all began when Houston rapper Megan Thee Stallion uploaded a picture of herself together with Beyoncé and Blue on New Year’s Eve.

a feeling the jay z face genes will really strike Blue Ivy and I feel so sorry for her,”he said in the since-deleted tweet. Really, another journalist from Harper’s publication chimed in on the distasteful attack on the 7-year-old, recommending that she will turn to plastic surgery to modify her looks when she gets older– also comparing her to Kylie Jenner.
There’s absolutely nothing safe about insulting a child’s features no matter whether that child has well-known moms and dads or not. There’s no worth in colorism, anti-blackness or attempting to pretend that class is a reason for targeting a 7 years of age with insults.

The tweets are no longer available on either writers’ social networks, and rather have actually been changed by weak apologies.
This the kind of @AriLennox was referencing when she speak about how Some black men and females destroy the self-confidence of our complete Black children when we need to be uplifting and loving them. All skin folks ain’t kin folks.

“I’m sorry about heaven Ivy tweet– bad joke, and black women in specific should have better,” said Collins, which was a rather underwhelming attempt at assuming accountability. Lucca insisted that her tweet was “petty,” when she attempted to recant her declaration. She said, “… Kid of famous ought to be off limits, however time and again they haven’t been. So I said something petty and have been called awful, old, and a racist.”
Lucca included, “I’m not playing the victim … sorry that I insulted Beyoncé’s child by recommending that she may get plastic surgery some day, like many kids of well-known individuals do.” In a follow-up tweet, she likewise said, “I’m really sorry to anyone who was advised of past hurt because of my comments. I really think Blue Ivy will go to the grave without knowing who I am, which is neither here nor there, but on the off chance she sees it– I’m sorry, young woman. You’re gon na go far no matter what.”
I’m not playing the victim … sorry that I insulted Beyoncé’s child by suggesting that she might get plastic surgery some day, like many children of famous individuals do.

Regardless of these authors deleting their tweets, it needs to practically be presumed that social networks is a place where your words are never-ceasing, thanks to screenshots. Not just are Collins and Lucca the center of much-warranted reaction, however folks are likewise calling for their firing.
Sorry? Hardly. Joke? LMAO. Kiki-ing backward and forward with your White friend about a little Black ladies looks does not sound “sorry”. And if you understand “Black girls be worthy of better”, you would have never said that shit to start with.

One Twitter user called Collins out for enabling Lucca, who is a white lady, to make her crass comment. “Do not desire to pile on here however your exchange with @unbuttonmyeyes seems to have actually given her consent to insult a young black lady who can’t manage her features or who her parents are. She continues to double down on it. Perhaps have a talk with your friend there,” the person composed.
Another person stated clearly, “It was not a bad joke and I have currently sent an e-mail to among your companies. Hopefully you will be fired soon.”

A 3rd user expressed their hopes that Lucca is replaced at Harper’s publication by a Black woman, writing, “I hope you get Replaced by a Black Woman.”
It must go without stating that attacks on kids, their functions and their hair is neither a joke, nor will it be endured. It is deplorable– duration.
