The Dixie Chicks Defend Beyoncé After Their Country Music Awards Performance
Remember when we told you that racists were steaming mad at the Country Music Awards for letting Beyoncé grace the stage???
Well her fellow CMA performers The Dixie Chicks are none too pleased by the social media backlash Baddie Bey’s gotten and they’re defending her.
“If we all turn this up really loud, together we can drown out the hate,” they captioned a link to the CD quality version of their Beyoncé collab.
Adding fuel to the fire surrounding their performance, the Country Music Awards deleted ALL social media posts and references of Bey onstage.
Why? Because of the overwhelmingly racist comments and because they “were concerned” about the Dixie Chicks’ support of the Black Lives Matter movement.
Sources directly connected with the CMAs tell TMZ, the honchos folded to fans who posted racist and other harsh comments. We’re told the honchos were especially concerned about the reaction to Beyonce’s support and the support of the Dixie Chicks to the Black Lives Matter movement.
Some of the comments included, “That’s right folks. Beyonce performed at the CMAs last night & is on a mission to take country music away from us, hardworking white people!” And, “Beyonce overrated racist n***er bitch.”
In addition to its website, the CMAs have scrubbed the women from all social media platforms.
We’re told the CMA people “just want this to go away” and feel it was probably a mistake to invite the 4 women in the first place.
Wowwwwww, can you believe they were worried about BLM in this whole debacle???
The Dixie Chicks are now clapping back at the CMAs erasure.
Hit the flip to see what they said.
According to Dixie Chicks lead singer Natalie Maines, she’ll be MUCH too busy for next year’s CMAs…
and Bey is still slaying. “Always stay gracious best revenge is your paper,” wrote the singer while quoting Baddie Bey.

The CMAs are now denying any wrongdoing…
“CMA has not erased any mentions of Beyoncé’s performance on the CMA Awards. In advance of the broadcast, CMA removed a five-second promotional clip from ABC.com and CMA’s Facebook page. The promo was unapproved and CMA removed it prior to the broadcast. Beyoncé’s performance with Dixie Chicks was a highlight of the evening and we are continuing to share the amazing full-length performance clip via our official social channels.”
and Bey’s released behind the scenes moments from CMAs experience.
