Billboard Tweet Sexualizes And Slut-Shames 2-Year-Old North West

Oh hell fucking nope. This morning, whoever runs the social media account for Billboard made the gross decision to post the above photo and headline, linking to a post about and video of North West telling the paparazzi “I said no pictures.” Let’s be very clear here: the combination of this headline and photo not only sexualizes a two-year-old girl, but in comparing her to her mother (who, yes, had a sex tape) in a sexual and judgmental way, serves to slut-shame her as well. In what goddamn universe would it ever be okay to tweet this shit? NONE. Naturally, the tweet has been deleted, but instead of offering an apology, Billboard instead replaced it with this scrambling attempt to “compliment” North as “sassy”:

Girl, bye. Delete both tweets, say you’re fucking sorry, THE END. [
