Journalists Regret Their Blue Ivy Comments After Social Media Uproar

<p>On Wednesday, two journalists had to walk back comments they made about Beyonce and Jay-Z’s daughter Blue Ivy, according to <i>Page Six. </i>Rapper Megan Thee Stallion had posted a picture of herself, seven-year-old Blue Ivy, and Beyonce celebrating the New Year. <i>Vanity Fair </i>critic K. Austin Collins tweeted, “I have a feeling the jay z face genes are about to really hit Blue Ivy and I feel so sorry for her,” said Collins. NBC news reports that <i>Harper’s </i>web editor Violet Lucca said, “They haven’t?” Lucca went on to add, “or she’ll just get plastic surgery at 16 a la Kylie Jenner and we’ll all have to pretend that she always looked that way…I can’t allow myself to feel too sorry for the incredibly rich!” Social media users were upset and responded to the journalist tweets, ultimately causing both journalists to delete them. Later, Collins tweeted, “I’m sorry about the Blue Ivy tweet — bad joke, and black girls in particular deserve better,” Collins tweeted. Lucca didn’t seem as apologetic, saying, “sorry that I insulted Beyoncé’s daughter by suggesting that she might get plastic surgery some day, like many children of famous people do.”</p>
