Just days after the petition for Beyonce to comb Blue Ivy’s hair was launched, Beyonce shared this intimate photo of Blue still rocking her beautiful natural hair while spending time with her father, Jay-Z, on Father’s Day. Although Jay and Bey still hasn’t addressed Blue’s hair critics, India Arie had quite a few things to say. Clearly India was not a fan of Jasmine Toliver’s petition concerning Blue’s hair so she expressed her thoughts in an open letter via Twitter.
Here’s what she had to say:
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. WHY? 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.
Do you agree with the singer?
