Jet Magazine’s Editor Issues Apology For Calling Fantasia Illiterate
The other day Fantasia went off over the photo Jet magazine used on the cover. The magazine issued a statement in response to the singer’s anger. Mitzi Miller, the magazine’s editor-in-chief, then wrote on her personal Facebook page how frustrated she was about having to write press release for someone who can’t even read. 😯
Miller reportedly told her Facebook friends:
“The fact that I wasted an hour of my workday writing a press release to address an issue created by a person who cannot even read it is just… #whyiwannaBahousewife.”
Of course, someone then passed around her Facebook post which led to her issuing this apology via MadameNoire.com:
“I apologize for the lack of sensitivity shown in my FaceBook post. It was a thoughtless comment made during a moment of frustration. It was unprofessional and not representative of the JET mission, which is to uplift. I regret letting my emotions get the best of me. I am truly apologetic.”
Mitzi Miller, Editor in Chief, JET
You would think Ms. Miller would have known better than to make such a statement in the first place. So far no word on if there will be any consequences.
