I think change.org is a great way for people to address causes they believe in. THIS, however, is just cray-cray. Someone named Jasmine Tolliver (she’s since changed to just her initials on the Change.org petition she started), has started a petition for Beyonce and Jay Z to “Comb [Blue Ivy's] hair.” Seriously.
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.
OMG. The petition has actually gotten a little under 3500 signatures (as of this writing). One person responding to the petition wrote, “Maybe we need to petition for a life for Jasmine Tolliver.” Yet another person wrote, “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.”
People have even gone to Jasmine’s Facebook page. There she wrote:
My joke took off anything I guess with “sign a petition” is funny 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. Yes I’m natural.! Have a seat to most people. I can care less about Beyoncé or jay z but I do care for the kids hair. 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.
Something tells me Beyonce and Jay-Z won’t just “breathe and chill out” about this. I think bringing a child into all of this crosses the line. What do you think of this?
