Bill O'Reilly is getting dangerously close to evoking the wrath of the Beygency. The conservative talk show host once again came after Beyoncé for setting a bad example for young people, this time calling out her hyper-sexual performance at the MTV Video Music Awards.
“You remember Jackie Robinson and Willie Mays. Weren’t they fabulous athletes — I idolized Willie Mays,” O’Reilly told his guest Ben Carson, during a conversation about, of all things, the situation in Ferguson, Missouri. “And what do we have now? What do we have now? Gangster rappers, you know, Beyoncé. The most famous, you know, doing these videos that show these kinds of things to young, 9, 10, 11-year-old girls? I mean — and it’s celebrated. It’s celebrated. You know, that’s the big change.”
This isn't the first time O'Reilly has taken issue with the music superstar. The Fox News host slammed Blue Ivy's mother during a conversation with Russell Simmons earlier this year, saying her "Partition" music video would lead to an increase in promiscuous behavior among teens.
To recap, in the past year alone O'Reilly has blamed Beyoncé for everything from teen pregnancy to the Ferguson riots, putting the degradation of society squarely on her sculpted shoulders.
Gotta wonder what Bill would have to say about this.
