Journalists apologise for criticising Blue Ivy Carter's appearance

Now there is the foolishness of a Black male journalist insulting the looks of 7-year-old Blue Ivy Carter, and a white female colleague joining in.

As for her New Year's Eve, rapper Megan Thee Stallion posted to Instagram photo booth pics of her posing with Beyonce and Blue Ivy, writing: "Happy 2020".

Not to be outdone, Harper Bazaar's web editor Violet Lucca chimed in, "They haven't already?". "I can't allow myself to feel too sorry for the incredibly rich!" on Twitter. And after their tweets went viral and caused a firestorm on social media, both journalists apologised. The now-deleted tweet said.

Beyoncé also shared some incredible snippets of her biggest moments of the year, including Homecoming, The Lion King premiere and some famous birthday celebrations. Not only are Collins and Lucca the center of much-warranted backlash, but folks are also calling for their firing.

There is the whole Ari Lennox/Teyana Taylor situation where a Black man said the women have great sex appeal while simultaneously looking like "rottweilers", and the "Shea Butter Baby" singer slammed him and other ignorant men for their anti-Blackness (based on the disdain for certain Black features).

Collins later backtracked, tweeting: 'I'm sorry about the Blue Ivy tweet - bad joke, and black girls in particular deserve better, ' but his apology has gone mostly unaccepted. "She said, "... Children of famous ought to be off limits, but time and again they haven't been. She continues to double down on it. At this point, there is no word as to whether Blue Ivy is aware of the public bashing or if her parents were able to shield her from it. Meanwhile, Lucca insisted that her tweet was "petty", when she tried to recant her statement.

Do you agree with those who think that K Austin Collins and Violet Lucca should be fired?
