Several days ago, we reported on a disturbing petition aiming at Jay Z and Beyonce for the “lack of care” for toddler daughter Blue Ivy’s hair.
Now, “Not My Hair” singer, India Arie, is coming to the parents’ and toddler’s defense. In a letter to the couple’s critics India writes…
My thoughts on #BlueIvy’s Hair
Why does ANYone get the idea that its ok to make fun of a child?
In public no less?
This celebrity culture that hypnotizes people into thinking a person is LITERALLY NOT REAL because you see them on television is a spell the watcher HIM or HER SELF MUST BREAK.
Blue Ivy — is a CHILD.
and ANYONE thinking to themselves right now:
“But she was born with a silver spoon in her mouth so what does it matter what I say”
Denying ANY PERSON their humanity , is a GAME we should ALL stop playing.
Because it’s the kind of PERSON YOU WANT TO BE.
Why NOT be a person who is loving towards human kind as a whole AND people as individuals?
WHY NOT be a person protects the hearts of children?
I think! all these people making negative comments would feel the SAME WAY if Blue Ivy’s hair were TOO DONE. If she had a relaxer, of Hair pulled too tight at the edges.
being gentle with a child’s hair is simply appropriate – this goes the same for ALL children.
come ya’ll Lol
Were ARE better than this.
India also tweeted, “and to be CLEAR my words weren’t even ABOUT HAIR! they were ACTUALLY about crossing boundaries of respect. i stand by what i’ve said.”
Well said Ms. Arie.
What are your thoughts Ck readers, do you agree with India’s comments or not?
