Billboard Magazine has apologized for “sexualizing” North West in a bizarre tweet sent out Friday morning.

Someone on Billboard‘s staff tweeted out a picture of North West sticking out her tongue while holding a Pez candy dispenser in her hand, with a caption that read, “The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree…” Many thought the joke alluded to Kim Kardashian’s infamous sextape with Ray J.


As the tweet – which has since been deleted – began to pop up on followers’ timelines, the backlash was immediate:

The publication claims the caption was taken out of context and issued an apology: “The caption was about her comments to paparazzi. The suggestion some see was not intended.” The tweet was, in fact, linked to a story on Billboard about North shutting down the paparazzi by saying, “I said no pictures!

It looks like North’s first paparazzi-induced scandal is the books.

    No matter what I did in my life, it does not give others the right to make comments about my child in such a way. This is a baby who has done nothing to anyone. I had no idea that there were so many perfect people on earth, who think that its ok to make such remarks.

    This is a child….whatever her parents has done in the past should not be reflected on this baby. If that’s the case, then all white people should be pictured with whips stating the same shit. Leave the baby alone.

    Now if I were the child’s mother (I HATE that dumb name) I would look in a mirror and see what I have done. MY MEDIA took a cheap shot at my child because I’m untalented and exploited a filthy nasty sex tape for my fame and keep showing up half naked when I need more attention. I wouldn’t be mad at Billboard at all but then I have a brain Kim doesn’t…….this is why these black widows latch onto men with talent and suck them dry!
