Beyonce is Black excellence. So you know what happens whenever someone is Black excellence? They make white people maaaaaaaaaaad. This is a tale as old as time. Beyonce’s sheer greatness has always been a sticking point for white people, but especially in the last few years since she has really stepped up and stepped out for Black people.
“I’m an artist and I think the most powerful art is usually misunderstood…But anyone who perceives my message as anti-police is completely mistaken. I have so much admiration and respect for officers and the families of the officers who sacrifice themselves to keep us safe.”
“But let’s be clear: I am against police brutality and injustice,” the singer added. “Those are two separate things. If celebrating my roots and culture during Black History Month made anyone uncomfortable, those feelings were there long before a video and long before me. I’m proud of what we created and I’m proud to be part of a conversation that is pushing things forward in a positive way.”
It just doesn’t stop. Beyonce continuously spreads her black girl magic everywhere, regardless of what the haters may say. So we decided to grab a few of those moments where white people got irrationally angry at Queen Bey and want to show you how ridiculous it all is. Hit the flip to see the moments.
Obama Inauguration – You know Obama’s inauguration was the saddest moment in racism history. They were looking for anything to be mad about. So when Beyonce appeared to lip sync at the event, they were outraged. How dare she not belt it out for real?! Whatever.
Super Bowl 2014 – When Beyonce shut down the Super Bowl in 2014, causing a power outage in the process, she drew the ire of angry (white) parents across the country who sent in complaints about Beyonce’s “lewdness” and sexiness. Whoops. Y’all will be aight.
Super Bowl 2016 – The 2016 Super Bowl was supposed to be Coldplay. It was supposed to be safe and white. Then Bruno Mars showed up. Then Beyonce popped up out of nowhere with her backup singers rocking berets and Black Panther adjacent garb, infuriating the likes of Tammy Lo Mein and her sorry a$$ ilk.
Becky With The Good Hair – Man, remember when Beyonce made “Becky” a household name? This had white women across the country clutching their pearls angry that they were stereotyped as women who could be named Becky.
Being…Pregnant? – When Beyonce set the internet on fire with her twin pregnancy announcement, some choice white women got upset and wrote op-eds about how women shouldn’t post their pregnancy announcements. Sounds like a hater.
National Anthem – Back in February, Beyonce and Jay-Z were spotted at an NFL game sitting down while the National Anthem played. This caused straight up outrage and anger over their soft protest.
Black Is King – Now you know this was going to make people angry. Bey declaring Black is king? What? How dare she? You know people were made at this.
Not only did Black Is King itself cause angry white tears, but the presence of a white butler in the background really left them saltier than any food they’ve had in decades.
