My how I love a quick read!
As observed by Brook Lynn Carter on yesterday, Vibe magazine mocked reality television queens Kandi Buruss, Tamar Braxton, Evelyn Lozada and Chrissy Lampkin on the sly by branding them as ‘Role Models’ for the cover of its annual Sexy Issue.
While many of us enjoyed the complimentary kee kee kee and tipped our hats to the magazine (whether it left a good or bad taste in your mouth, their mission in getting people talking was definitely accomplished), not everybody was laughing. Here’s a snippet from the community conversation on C+D’s Facebook profile:
“Yes. If I had a choice of being a senator or running a failing show store and running across dinner tables barefoot to attack another woman I’m obviously going for the latter. I will NEVER buy an issue of Vibe because of this.” — Marissa
“Soooo… are we now teaching or daughters how to trade their “special cookie” for gucci bags and prada shades? You know what? I will stick to education, common sense, and good manners. Except for Kandi, she is a great business women that went out and created her own wealth the right way. By working for it, not sleeping for it!” — Faith
“Vibe stopped being about shit years ago. This mag is now for the hood, ratchet and hopeless. Bitches that rock lacefronts, got face tatts and kids can’t speak nothing but curse words and recite Wacka Flocka. The niggas that read this cant read too good. Got 30 kids and paying a $1.15 in child support and got warrants and shit.” — Ty
