Rihanna's Racial Slur Offender Quits Her Job as Magazine Editor
Though saying that she never meant to offend anyone, the former editor-in-chief for a Dutch magazine apologizes for the offensive words she used in her article.
A magazine editor named Eva Hoeke decided to resign from her position after causing outcry for calling a "N****b****." The former editor-in-chief was responsible for an article entitled "De N****b****" which discussed the fashion style of the Barbados-born beauty. Beside being slammed by public, she has also got protest from Riri herself.

The Grammy-winning singer posted a long tweet to Hoeke on December 20. She wrote, "@evajackie I hope u can read english, because your magazine is a poor representation of the evolution of human rights! I find you disrespectful, and rather desperate!! You ran out of legit, civilized information to print!"

The "We Found Love" hitmaker continued to slam Hoeke in another long message. She posted, "There are 1000's of Dutch girls who would love to be recognized for their contributions to your country, you could have given them an article. Instead, u paid to print one degrading an entire race! That's your contribution to this world!"

"To encourage segregation, to mislead the future leaders to act in the past! You put two words together," the Barbados went on. "@evajackie with the intent of abasement, that made no sense..."N**** B****"?!....Well with all respect, on behalf of my race, here are my two words for you...F*** YOU!!!"

At first, Hoeke defended her writing by tweeting that the term she used was meant as a joke. When the protests didn't die down, she issued an official statement to give a more thorough explanation. "I realize that my first reaction through Twitter, in which I indicated that it was a joke, has been an incomplete misrepresentation what me, and also the author of the article, meant," she clarified.

"The term 'n****b****' came from America and all we did was describing a style of dress," she furthermore said. "Through the course of events, me and the publisher have concluded that because my credibility is now affected, it is better for all parties if I quit my function as editor-in-chief effective immediately."
