Jasmine Toliver created a new Change.org petition titled “Comb Her Hair,” in a desperate attempt to protect the 2-year-old from what she deems unhealthy hair care.
“As a woman who understands the importance of hair care, it’s disturbing to watch a child suffering from the lack of hair moisture,” she wrote on the petition. “The parents of Blue Ivy, Sean Carter a.k.a Jay Z and Beyonce have failed at numerous attempts of doing Blue Ivy’s hair. 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.”
The petition already has more than 2,000 signatures, close to the goal of 2,500. It’s not clear what happens when the protestors reach their goal, but it’s unlikely the Carters will be enthusiastic to adhere to the group’s hair care guidelines.
Several of the group’s signers commented, explaining their passion for this topic.
“Because no child who’s mom spends thousands on her hair (monthly) should live life looking like a sheep!” Nancy Kondo wrote.
“Cruelty to children has to stop,” Annie Campbell wrote.
But not everyone agrees with Toliver’s fight, with Trina Tilson writing, “Maybe we need to petition for a life for Jasmine Toliver.”
