Jackie Magazine Vs Rihanna

So, I don't know if Rihanna did something to piss this lady off or what, but a writer for Jackie Magazine wrote a very unflattering article about my favorite Bajan beauty. They not only called her an nword bitch and said her backside was "ghetto", but they also mistakenly stated that she was from Jamaica. The editor took to Facebook to write a less than half ass attempt at an apology, but Rihanna wasn't buying it. In fact, she had this to say as a reply: "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 no sense…”NIGGA BITCH”?!….Well with all respect, on behalf of my race, here are my two words for you…FUCK YOU!!!” Her reply must've gotten through to their editor because she has resigned from her editorial duties. I am very proud of Rihanna, and very disappointed that someone like that calls themselves a writer. That is a disgrace to the rest of us!

UPDATE: The publisher of the magazine has not only retracted their apology, but has also stated that there was nothing wrong with what was said in the article...WTF
