Fix it Jesus!
Blue Ivy, at just 2 years old receives more backlash than celebrities who has been in the industry for years. In the past Beyonce has endured a lot of criticism concerning how she styles her daughter’s hair. After this photo of The Carter family just getting off a plane in New York surfaced over the weekend, baby Blue’s hair became the topic of conversation all over again. Someone even went as far as creating a petition on change.org titled Blue Ivy: Comb Her Hair.
To add to the foolishness Instagram began creating silly memes implying that Blue Ivy looks like The Weekend and Lenny Kravitz. In one photo they even compared Blue’s hair to the branches of a tree. Black Twitter also had their two cents to throw in.
See some of what was said below.
Could it just be that African-Americans have not fully accepted seeing women of color rock their natural hair, because for so long our minds have been conditioned to believe that silky, straight hair is beautiful?
What are your thoughts?
