A critic from Vanity Fair, K. Austin Collins, and a white web editor for Harper's named Violet Lucca banded together to make fun of Blue Ivy's looks after Megan Thee Stallion posted a picture of her, Beyonce and Blue Ivy.
In a now-deleted tweet, Collins wrote:
"I have a feeling the jay z face genes are about to really hit Blue Ivy and I feel so sorry for her"
Lucca responded back: "They haven't already?" She also tweeted "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!"
Collins eventually apologized, writing: "I’m sorry about the Blue Ivy tweet — bad joke, and black girls in particular deserve better." However, Lucca gave a half-assed apology at first and doubled down on her comments. A sample of some of her tweets (in chronological order) which I'm pasting in case they get deleted:
"There is nothing that I can say that won’t be written off or projected upon or dunked on, so I choose to say nothing."
"Structural racism is real. It does not matter how much money a POC makes for them to be affected by it. I realize that when I make fun of another celeb kid—say, Baron Trump—it’s totally different than when I say something about Blue Ivy."
"I’m truly sorry to anyone who was reminded of past hurt because of my comments. I truly believe Blue Ivy will go to the grave without knowing who I am, which is neither here nor there, but on the off chance she sees it—I’m sorry, young lady. You’re gonna go far no matter what."
