2 Journalists Face Online Backlash For Criticizing Beyonce’s 7-year-old Daughter

Two journalists one from Vanity Fair and the other Harper’s magazine, have provoked the Beehive by criticizing the appearance of Beyonce and Jay-Z's daughter, Blue Ivy Carter. They face online backlash for the disparaging things said about the 7-year-old.

Trouble started after rapper Megan Thee Stallion on Wednesday, shared Instagram photos of herself, Beyonce and Blue Ivy celebrating New Year’s Eve.

“Happy 2020,” the rapper captioned the post, which has since garnered more than 2 million likes.

Beyonce's fans commented saying Blue Ivy was “gorgeous” like her famous mother Beyonce. However, Vanity Fair film critic K. Austin Collins wrote in a since-deleted tweet, “I have a feeling the jay z face genes are about to really hit Blue Ivy and I feel so sorry for her," according to Page Six.

The web editor for Harper’s magazine, Violet Lucca, replied to Collins’ tweet, “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!”

Page Six also report that Lucca deleted her tweet.

Both tweets have since gone viral. Collins and Lucca were blasted for saying negative things about a child, or for going after a young girl of color. It was also noted the influence the two journalists have since they work for media organizations that regularly comment on news, politics and culture, which may give them the power to influence societal perceptions of race and gender.
