Beyoncé has been on the receiving end of growing backlash for her Super Bowl 50 halftime performance. On a recent episode of Tomi for TheBlaze, host and conservative political commentator Tomi Lahren went at the global icon and brought Jay Z into it, too.
“Now the Super Bowl halftime show has become a way to politicize and advance the notion that black lives matter more," she says. "Beyoncé, really? What is the political message here? What is it they are trying to convey here? A salute to what? A group that used violence and intimidation to advance, not racial equality, but an overthrow of white domination.” She goes on to mention Jay Z’s drug dealing past, commenting, “Your husband was a drug dealer. For 14 years he sold crack cocaine. Talk about 'protecting black neighborhoods.' Start at home.” The Beyhive has since erupted with many responding to Lahren on Twitter and Facebook. Some even changed her Wikipedia page to read "#Beyhive bzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz."
