Twitter Beef Gone Too Far: Change.org Petitions to Have Adidas FIRE Teyana Taylor & MAC Fire Rihanna!


Okay so usually I wouldn't blog about twitter beefs because I think its stupid and childish but this one caught my eye because of how far its gone. For the last week or so Twitter has been going insane because Rihanna and Teyana Taylor have been going at it! It all started when Teyana posted a video of her singing Anita Baker's hit song Caught In The Rapture.



Shortly after that video Rihanna's friend and hairstylist Yusef posted a video of himself singing the same song in a wig, a snapback and sneaks. Coincidence? Not likely! Rihanna captioned the video: "B!t$#es be like…yasssss".




Girl if that ain't SHADE. I DON'T WHAT IS.

So naturally when Teyana Taylor saw it she was not happy. Here's her tweets toward the SHADE:






 Rihanna decided to clap back and here's what was said:




 It Just Keeps Getting Worse Ya'll Teyana Clapped Back:




Then Rihanna's Friend Melissa Decides to Chime In:





Then Karrauche Posted a Small Hit Toward the Feud (At least its perceived as a READ):


After all the fallout, the hair stylist speaks out on his part in this stupid beef and he claims he wasn't trying to cause no drama it was a just a fun sing a along:

“Honestly, I just finished making the wig. I started making the video. It was amazing, no malicious intent towards Teyana,” he said. “I just think it was uncalled for.” “Teyana killed that song.”
Williams admitted that though he doesn’t know Taylor personally, they have mutual friends.
When asked if Rihanna took Taylor’s tweets personally, Williams said the Diamonds singer is too focused with her work to be going back and forth with Taylor.
“She [Rihanna] could care less. It was funny. Thats whats so funny. It wasn’t like that.,” he said. “She doesn’t care., that’s her personality.”
Williams also defended Rihanna and said she’s no “cyber bully.”
“Cyber bully is harsh word. She is focused, being Rihanna. She is not sitting around. She didn’t grab her phone. She is the most kind and giving person. I just think for that to go the way it went, it was uncalled for.”
In an earlier statement, Williams said that Taylor took the video and “ran like the wind.”
“It turned into this big drama, but I guess it was all good at the end of the day to help with her new album. A little publicity doesn’t hurt good or bad these days,” he wrote.

Its just too messy! 

Then Teyana posted a picture on her profile background on twitter. People were outraged and up in arms. Heres the picture:

Thats when the petition got started. Jan Brown started a petition that requested Teyana Taylor be removed from Adidas as a spokesperson and designer. And this petition is making moves. Nearly obtaining the required 2500 signatures. Here's the gist of the petition and major blogs that have supported it:
Miss Taylor first (before the image above) started sending abusive and offensive tweets/retweets to Rihanna for over a period of 8 hours. This is not about RIHANNA, this is about all the ABUSED WOMEN of the world being MOCKED! IT IS A SHAME that ADIDAS seems to be endorsing @TEYANATAYLOR!
We demand that you do the right thing and terminate her contract and send a strong message to your consumers! Letting one of your sponsors mock a domestic violence victim discourages your female customers from speaking out against their abusers!!!
The petition has been gathering momentum and we thank the following blogs for their support;

@thatgrapejuice Domestic Abuse Victims Flood Rihanna / Teyana Taylor Petition: ‘She’s A Disgrace’ http://bit.ly/1h2l4f1
@VibeMagazine Furious Petitioners Want Adidas-Reebok To Drop Teyana Taylorhttp://bit.ly/1727TZR
Gotta admit that the picture was going to far. But removing her from her Adidas is over the top. 
Her shoes have had many #sneakerfiends clamoring for them and it was a good business deal for Adidas to team up with Teyana. The 22 year old obviously has an eye for what people want in sneakers these days and they aren't half bad. Her first pair of Harlem GLCs (the name of her line) "Good Luck Charm" dropped in February and apparently did very well. 



She was set to release her next pair in November, but because of this petition this may be halted. However no one has word from Adidas or Teyana Taylor's camp as far as her being dropped and her shoe line scrapped. 



Shortly after this petition went up another one went up. For Rihanna to be fired by MAC! The petition reads like this:

"Rihanna has many young fans that look up to her and bullying is a HUGE problem that we are facing with the youth today. She is known for constantly bullying and picking fights with people over the internet and this is a problem that has been going on for a while now. By consistently attacking people online about their looks and reminding them how they are beneath her, she is using her platform in a very negative light and does not provide a positive image for MAC cosmetics or any of the other companies that she endorses. She is a poor role model and promotes habitual drug use."
"The effects of cyber-bullying will stunt the growth of our beautiful nation by weakening the psyche of the women of tomorrow who will lead us into the next century. Is this someone who you want representing your brand? It's time that Rihanna learns that bullying is UNACCEPTABLE and will not be tolerated!"
Let's just hope that neither one of these ladies loses their livelihood and can just squash this petty BS!

I happen to think both of these petitions are ridiculous but are for a good cause and I know that peoples hearts in the right place but this is uncalled for. I'll explain why later. 

Oooo You Definitely Need to Know What I Think.....



First off Rihanna has been doing this for a long time. She constantly makes digs at people and she does bully on Twitter. I'm sorry but I have seen how she goes after people and it ain't pretty. The way she goes after Karruechue Tran is ridiculous. She may be a spitfire but there is line that she alt not cross and she does it every time she logs into her twitter or instagram. Second: Rihanna ain't no saint. And she has not answered for not one thing she has done. Were talking about a woman who is constantly on the road partying to the wee hours of the morning, constantly drinking and taking drugs while she parties. You can't say in one hand she's a victim still (when she's no longer in the relationship and hasn't been around the man for quite some time) and in the other hand ignore her ignorant, "bad girl" behaviour like its a by product of her abuse. Cause it ain't. Do I think Rihanna should lose her MAC contract over this? No I don't. Although she caused the drama I think it was just a simple spat amongst colleagues that went too far. 

Now Teyana Taylor I think was trying to make a point and it backfired. She should not have used that picture of Rihanna's face from 2009. She should have taken the high road and left well enough alone. She was way out of line for the doctored boxing photo. But do I think she should lose her Adidas contract over it? HELL NO! Let me explain why. First off: Rihanna caused this drama. Now if she wasn't making fun of Teyana she sure made it appear that she was. Second: It was very clear that she was either mocking or poking fun at the girl with her hair stylist Yusef. Now Yusef tried to clean it up but it wasn't successful. But EVERYONE that saw it, knew exactly what it was. So, missed me with that ish! And finally Teyana was simply responding to what she thought was some #SERIOUSSHADE and I don't blame her. I think she needs to from now on just check her anger and remove herself from the situation before it gets out of hand and leave it at that. #LESSONLEARNED.

Twitter beefs are childish and stupid. There is no reason to argue with someone over the Internet about anything. I know that it is very tempting and people just have to defend themselves but there is no need. 

Rihanna you need to grow up. All the money and fame that you have and you are acting like a mean girl in high school. Where do you have the time to do this? Isn't your life fulfilling enough for you to not worry about what everyone else is saying or doing? Cause let me tell you something just like you got that fame you could lose it just as quickly. Take a gander at DMX. One of the top rappers of my time and now look at him: Drug addicted deadbeat dad and laughing stock of the music industry. If you don't straighten yourself out you will be another him or you'll end up like Courtney Love a self professed bad girl of her time too. Just pull yourself together Rihanna. You've got great music and you're one of the top females in the industry to date. There is no reason for you to stoop low like this and fight over twitter like a little girl.

Teyana Taylor you should be more mature and not allow yourself to get caught up in some mess like this. There was no need to even go there with her. And you have to know that you went way too far with the photo shopped photo. Come on now you're better than that. You're making strides in your own way and that's the one thing I can honestly say I admire about you. Your sneaker line is creative and inventive, so stick to the positive and ignore the negative. 

I AM NOT SIGNING NEITHER PETITION!!!! I think they are pointless and people need to stop trying to fight these celebrities battles for them. This petition to fire Teyana Taylor IS about Teyana Taylor. There are times for these types of petitions and then are people abusing the power of these kinds of petitions. The petition to fire Rihanna was clearly a reaction to the Teyana Taylor petition. These women are grown they don't need you to fight their battles. Rihanna is not a victim of domestic violence anymore and everyone constantly coddling her like she's fragile is ridiculous. I'm sure. no I know she was affected by what happened to her. And I feel sorry that she had to go through that, I really do. But Rihanna is living her life. She's moved on and these petitions and crap are not helping her or anyone. You're using this situation as a platform but honey you picked the wrong platform. There was absolutely no reason to even start this petition. There are thousands of people who have used that picture negatively but because Teyana is a public figure you want to make an example of her. As I said before your hearts in the right place but you picked the wrong battle to fight. I think this petition needs to dissolved along with the petition to fire Rihanna from MAC. Although both sides have valid points I don't think the situation was that extreme. 

If you would like to sign the Petitions be my guest but you won't find my name on there on either. I support the victims of domestic violence and pray that they find the strength to get out of those horrible situations and rise above. And I hope that the numbers of these victims dwindles every single day. 

But I won't support Rihanna and the constant FREE PASS she gets to act like an asshole when she is the sole reason this whole thing started in the first place. In regards to Rihanna's petition as I said I'm not signing either of them. Teyana crossed the line with the picture, I recognize that. She should've said what she said and left it at that. At that time Rihanna was abused and hurt and it was classless and disrespectful to mock what she went through, whether you like her or not. So Teyana no you don't get a FREE PASS for acting like a idiot either.  #imjussayin.
