So Blue Ivy has been the hot topic for a long time and more specifically her hair. I would always think why can’t people leave this child’s hair alone. Recently, a petition was set up on Change.org called “Comb Her Hair.” Now for me it doesn’t bother me because I am natural hair stylist so I deal with natural hair; more specifically kinky hair. Jay Z and Beyoncé as of yet has not replied but singer India.Arie had a few words via Facebook!

 

“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. WHY? 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.”
