Well this didn’t take long!
The Editor-In-Chief of Dutch magazine Jackie has resigned over the controversial article which referred to the singer Rihanna as being the “Ultimate Niggabitch”.
Eva Hoeke initially issued an “apology” but due to the intense backlash she has now released the following statement announcing her resignation.
“I realize that my first reaction through Twitter, in which I indicated that it was a joke, has been an incomplete description of what me, and also the author of the article, meant. The term ‘niggabitch’ came from America and we solely used it to describe a style of dress. Because of the enormous pressure through social media I was tempted to promise amendment regarding the language in future issues of Jackie. Apart from that I also offered a rectification. I have now come to the conclusion that rectification is not the right solution. I regret that I have taken a stand too quickly regarding an article in Jackie — which moreover had no racial motive at its basis. Through the course of events, me and the publisher have concluded that because my credibility is now affected, it is better for all parties if I quit my function as editor-in-chief effective immediately. After putting my heart and soul into Jackie for eight years, I realize that these errors – although not intended maliciously – are enough reason for leaving.
“The term ‘niggabitch’ came from America and we solely used it to describe a style of dress.”
See what you started America! Hahahahahaha.
NiggaBitch: “A style of dress” – I can’t…
Anyway good luck with the job hunting Eva.
I just hope that silly little fool Rihanna has learnt something from this incident and thinks twice before constantly referring to herself and others as “bitches” and “niggas” on Twitter .
