In June, a woman named Jasmine Toliver launched a ridiculous petition on Change.org to pressure music superstars Beyonce and Jay Z to “comb” their daughter Blue Ivy’s hair.
“It’s disturbing to watch a child suffering from the lack of hair moisture,” Toliver wrote on the petition. “This matter has escalated to the child developing matted dreads and lint balls. Please let’s get the word out to properly care for Blue Ivy hair.”
Although this petition seemed ridiculous, it still received 5,800 signatures. But it isn’t the only crazy petition hundreds of people have signed involving Black celebrities. Below are several other petitions that may be just as shocking.
STOP CIARA FROM MAKING MUSIC
A man started an online petition to get singer Ciara to stop making music in June 2013.
The man, who goes by the name Essence of Sean, said, “We want to get rid not only Ciara! But other gimmicks in the music industry! We need more artists like Janet Jackson, Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston, Beyonce Knowles just to name a few! Tired of this microwave music! Keep supporting this cause!”
This campaign drew 414 signatures.
