People everywhere have been sounding off regarding a recent photo of Blue Ivy’s (daughter of megastars Jay-Z and Beyonce) hair. There was even a ridiculous controversial and unflattering petition started on Change.org petitioning that the celebrity couple “properly care” for the two-year-old’s tresses.
I Am Not My Hair singer Indie Arie recently took to social media to state her opinion on the matter and, quite frankly, we could not agree with her more.
“Why does ANYone get the idea that its ok to make fun of a child?” India posted. “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,” she states, telling those who might think her priviledged upbringing makes it OK to slam her to stop “DENYING any person their humanity…”
“Why, India asks, should you refrain from trolling a toddler? “Because,” she writes, “it’s not 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?” she asks. “WHY NOT be a person protects the hearts of children?”
Also weighing in on the subject was the cast of the daytime talk show, The View.
“They are claiming it’s a mess of dreads,” said co-host Whoopi Goldberg. “You know what? You all should get a life! She’s 2 years old!”
Seconding that was Jenny McCarthy.
“You know, it’s when people start commenting on babies or anyone’s children, it’s the rudest, most cruel thing you can do,” she said.
Weigh in. What do you think? Is this topic of Blue’s hair ridiculous or valid?
