After Syleena Johnson‘s woeful weigh in and news of a Change.org petition to comb Blue Ivy‘s hair went viral, India.Arie says “enough is enough” – at least as it relates to people’s constant jabs to Beyonce‘s famous toddler’s locks.
Taking to Twitter to pen an open letter slamming critics who have lent negative comments about the child, the ‘I Am Not My Hair’ hitmaker was so upset that she assembled a fiery collection of words to scold fellow celebs and fans alike on the topic.
Her damning words below:
My thoughts on (Blue Ivy’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.
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.
