At the Sports Illustrated Sportsperson of the Year Show taping on Tuesday, Beyoncé presented Kaepernick with the SI Muhammad Ali Legacy Award for protesting police brutality with his decision to kneel during the national anthem. In her speech, Bey thanked Kaepernick for fighting the good fight against racial injustice. Quite predictably, Lahren didn’t take too kindly to that, and sounded off about "police-hating" Beyoncé on Twitter.
But now, it looks like Mama Knowles is stepping in.
Tina Knowles clapped back by posting a photo from the awards show on Instagram with a lengthy caption, lauding Kaepernick and defending her daughter’s speech.
"It’s very interesting that in Beyoncé speech She makes it crystal clear that Mr. Kaepernick nor anyone else was disrespecting our soldiers or All police officers, who protect us every day and we have the utmost respect for. Or the Flag. Its interesting that I don’t see that printed as often as the other part which i have read over and over," Tina writes.
We don’t disagree, and that’s not just because Bey is Queen.
Tina goes on to call out those who don’t actively take a stand against social injustice as "complicit" before letting us all know that she’s aware her post "is going to piss a lot of people off and if it does you are exactly who I’m talking about if the shoe fits wear it!"
Suffice it to say, Lahren probably should have thought twice about taking a shot at Queen Bey.
