Blue Ivy Petition Creator Says She Was Just Joking
By: Amanda Anderson-Niles
Blue Ivy’s hair seems to be a big topic, especially in the black community and we’re quite disturbed that the toddler’s hair is now being discussed on news outlets such as CNN. But we’re pretty sure it’s a rather heinous petition that helped the tot’s hair become such a popular topic in the last several days.
Self-proclaimed “natural hair lover” Jasmine Toliver created a petition that urged Beyonce to “comb” Blue Ivy’s hair, and it didn’t take long for the BeyHive to locate her Facebook page and start posting her photos all over social media.
As a result of Beyonce’s fans locating her Facebook page, Jasmine has since changed her name on the social networking site and she’s even deleted her Change.org profile. In the meantime, she now says the petition was just a joke and the people who signed it are idiots:
I’m just so over with society! Obviously the petition was a joke! It just goes to show you how dumb people really are to believe I would really deep down in my heart start a petition to comb her hair and be DEAD SERIOUS! Your suppose to laugh at stuff like that. Shake your head and keep strolling. A discussion with 4 friends and a joke when I said “I’m going to start a petition to get this baby hair combed” turned global!!! I guess petition sounds important like its judicial. Something that has to be notarized.. Like the courts or police officers has to be involved.! Like its a subpoena! Like if it does get a billion signatures a change will ACTUALLY HAPPEN!!!!! Lol yo it just goes to show people will fall for anything! Especially a petition as stupid as that!
While she says she still think Blue Ivy’s hair should be styled more often, she thinks only idiots would take such a stupid petition so seriously to actually support it.
What are your thoughts?
