India.Arie Reacts To Beyonce and Jay-Z's Daughter's Hair Backlash

06/18/2014
.
(Radio.com) A Change.org petition surfaced last week with a New York woman upset about the state of Jay Z and Beyoncι's daughter Blue Ivy's hair, making a simple request: "comb her hair." Since, the issue has divided much of the Internet — including R&B singer India.Arie, who threw herself into the toddler's corner with a Twitlonger post.

"Why does ANYone get the idea that its [sic] ok to make fun of a child?" she asked in a post on the site, which allows users to post messages to their Twitter that are longer than its standard 140 characters. "In public no less?"

The post comes after the petition took off; when Radio.com ran a story on the post last week, it had reached 725 signatures. It has since totaled 5,194. "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," the singer continued. "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."

She added that she believes folks would find issue with Blue Ivy's hair no matter what — even if it was "TOO DONE," and that "being gentle with a child's hair is simply appropriate - this goes the same for ALL children." more on this story
