Solange Knowles is known for speaking her mind, so after a group of women came at her family sideways at a concert last night, she took to Twitter to let her followers know that there is a bigger issue at hand.

The "T.O.N.Y." singer explained in a Twitter thread that she was told by four white women to "sit down" while at a Kraftwerk concert in New Orleans with her family.
