You would think with all of the positive tweets and just good vibes on the first day of the year professionals like K Austin Collins, film critic @vanityfair would feel inclined to go against the grain and not make fun of a 7-year-old girl. Today randomly, Collins said in a now-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,”.
This was after Megan shared this picture of Blue on her Instagram posing with herself and her mother Beyonce.

And to add insult to injury according to The Grio, “Collins’ cruel joke was co-signed by journalist, Violet Lucca, who works at Harper’s Magazine.”
“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!” Lucca replied. Collins is Black and Lucca is white.
Since then Collins issued a weak apology, but Twitter is having nothing to do with it. Read below:
I’m sorry about the Blue Ivy tweet — bad joke, and black girls in particular deserve better.

don’t give that now. you’re a cop out and youre projecting your self-hate on a seven year old girl who has done nothing to you. maybe next time you’ll learn to be quiet instead of bullying a child for simply being black. pic.twitter.com/Bp7yVkIaeD

Sorry? Hardly. Joke? LMAO. Kiki-ing back and forth with your White friend about a little Black girls looks doesn’t sound “sorry”. And if you know “Black girls deserve better”, you would have never said that shit to begin with.
Fuck you. pic.twitter.com/ABxxUTudgK
