Dutch magazine editor Eva Hoeke really crossed the line when she referred to Rihanna as a “niggabitch” in a recent article. The statement, she claims was only meant to be a joke in reference to her ghetto style, but it was far from funny.
Hoe continues to receive backlash for her offensive remarks. Today, Rihanna herself responded to the remarks via Twitter by saying:
To Editor in Chief Eva Hoeke she tweeted “@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,
@evajackie with the intent of abasement, that made no sense…”NIGGA BITCH”?!….Well with all respect, on behalf of my race, here are my two words for you…FUCK YOU!!!
In light of the the controversy, Hoe has since decided to resign from her position with the magazine. She concludes: “I should have counted to ten before making oversimplified statements via social media channels.
