Despite the professional public statement released that calmly explained why Fanatsia’s new photos were not used, the Editor in Chief of the magazine took to her own Facebook account to launch a rant of her own. In the rant, she called the R&B singer illiterate.
Editor in Chief, Mitzi Miller, writes to 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…”
Ouch. Eventually Miller had to put her foot in her mouth since one of her friends decided to put her blast and sent the message out. Of course Miller had to write an apology to Fantasia for the insult.
“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
