The second was touted as a breakthrough for Black ladies, however Jay-Z and Beyoncé’s Tiffany photoshoot was hit with extreme criticism. The artwork collectors posed in entrance of a coveted, long-unseen Jean-Michel Basquiat portray, Equals Pi, that was reportedly used to offset the picture in Tiffany’s signature coloration. Not fairly a precise match, however shut sufficient for the model.

In the meantime, Beyoncé stole consideration as a result of she was adorned with the Tiffany diamond, a bit of knickknack that was first found in a Kimberley diamond mine in South African again in 1877. Charles Lewis Tiffany bought the 287.42-carat tough stone the next yr, and it has solely been worn by 4 individuals—Beyoncé included—and the singer mark’s the primary Black girl.

With this revelation comes a pledge by Tiffany to donate $2 Million to Traditionally Black Schools and Universities, however not everyone seems to be impressed with Jay-Z and Beyoncé’s show. The general public was fast to level out the continuing scandals involving blood diamonds and the exploitation of African employees. Critics stormed the web by the hundreds to name out the billionaire couple, and after The Grio reposted photos, Beyoncé’ mom, Tina Lawson, jumped within the feedback to name out naysayers.

“What number of of you socially aware activist personal diamonds ? I believed so !” she wrote. “Effectively guess what did you go to attempt to verify to see the place the diamond got here from? Most likely not ! So once you guys get engaged you will not have a diamond you gonna placed on a sterling silver band And also you higher take a look at the place it got here from and the origin of the place got here from and why you add it take a look at the requires the Leather-based that you simply bizarre as a result of they made it got here from one other nation to to ban and never purchase diamonds proper as a result of your righteous !!”

Though it was slightly garbled due to a couple typos, it seems as if Lawson is asking the diamond activism by many a tad hypocritical. Test it out beneath.
