Beyoncé isn’t going to like this!
A woman in New York named Jasmine Tolliver is starting a fire for creating a ridiculous Change.org petition requesting that music moguls Beyoncé and Jay Z should take better care of daughter Blue Ivy Carter’s hair.
In the appeal, titled “Comb Her Hair”, she writes, “As a woman who understands the importance of hair care. It’s disturbing to watch a child suffering from the lack of hair moisture. The parents of Blue Ivy. Sean Carter A.K.A Jay-Z and Beyoncé has failed at numerous attempts of doing Blue Ivy Hair. This matter has escalated to the child developing matted dreads and lint balls. Please let’s get the word out to properly care for Blue Ivy hair.”
The offensive petition already accumulated over 2,600 signatures, and many haters shared their nasty opinions on the 2-year-old’s hairstyle.
“I hate when a mother looks like a million dollars with their hair all done and the child looks like they haven’t seen a comb since they were born,” one person wrote.
“Because no child who’s mom spends thousands on her hair (monthly) should live life looking like a sheep!” another shared.
On the other hand, there were those that responded to the insensitive petition with intense backlash for the shaming of an innocent toddler.
“This is completely unnecessary and whoever devised this petition is a moron, don’t do anything Jay Z and Beyonce!” wrote one person.
“Despite your PERSONAL views on little BLUE IVY’s hair, some people actually use this (WEBSITE) for REAL LIFE situations. This is why OUR world is so F’d up because we WORRY about the wrong things,” wrote another who was against the petition.
On Tolliver’s Facebook page, she was accused of racism and bullying. She then responded, defending herself and downplaying the situation by saying that it was only a big “joke.”
“…if I would’ve said ‘sign a petition to save LeBron James hairline’ that would’ve took off too! It’s a clever joke! Nobody came up with before. These blogs and websites are doing the most. My hair looks like blue ivy right now except its moisturized and detangled. People make nothing out of something. I love being black! I’m proud my bloodline runs from Africa. I’m proud of my own tightly coiled kinks. I’m proud of my big lips and brown skin. People just need to breathe and chill out.”
Maybe Tolliver is the one who should chill out.
