Beyoncé's Super Bowl 50 Halftime performance of her Black pride-themed single "Formation" rubbed several — mostly white — conservatives the wrong way with its powerful message. From some claiming Queen Bey was attacking the police — bye, Rudy Giuliani — to promoting Black stereotypes, the hate just got more ridiculous by the minute. The latest jab comes from conservative reporter Tomi Lahren, who unnecessarily used Jay Z's past to attack Bey.
"Beyoncé, really?" she said. "Great battle of the races. Your husband was a drug dealer. For 14 years, he sold crack cocaine. Talk about protecting Black neighborhoods."
Check out the clip, via The Shade Room, below:
Always down to protect their queen, the BeyHive found Lahren's Twitter account and destroyed her mentions. Take a look at a few tweets below.
And the best one of all...
Shoutout to the BeyHive for dropping that knowledge.
Meanwhile, Beyoncé's Formation stadium tour dates are selling out like hotcakes just one day after the pre-sale went live, with the singer adding another New York date just this morning. #Slay
