Gawker Writer Who Slandered Kanye West's Mother's Name Using The "N-Word" Is Fired - Coco & Creme

From Glamazons Blog: When will writers learn that using the “n-word” is highly inappropriate? Just weeks after Jackie Magazine called Rihanna a “n*ggabitch” then apologized and retracted it, here we are again. A writer at Gawker attempted to pick fun at Kanye West‘s twitter rant about his new company Wednesday night by using the “n-word” again. The writer, Seth Abramovitch, turned Kanye West’s company, DONDA, into an acronym, saying it stood for “Dis Original Nigga Dresses Aight.” Not only is it infuriating that he used the N-Word in his humorless joke, but Donda is Kanye’s late mother’s name. How dare he slander it that way.

Here’s the full passage:

You think Tom Ford is full of himself? Kanye West shits Tom Fords for breakfast. Then he irons out the shits into cutting-edge fabrics, and frantically cuts, sews, and laces that fabric through the night and into the morning, until he has produced the most unbelievable clothes — nay, FASHION + ART = FARTSHION! — in the universe. And he calls these clothes DONDA. But he calls all that other stuff DONDA, too! DONDA will be your everything. Just you wait and see. And what is DONDA? It’s an acronym for Dis Original Nigga Dresses Aight.

And much like Jackie Magazine‘s team, Abramovitch followed up with a half-hearted apology.
