SNL Defend’s Beyoncé’s New Song With Parody Horror Movie Trailer (video)
Remember when Beyoncé performed at the Super Bowl halftime show and it was AMAZING...and yet all people could talk about was that it was "too racial" and that people should boycott her? Yeah, SNL called all those people out and it was glorious.
A little back story for those of you that don't know...
The friday before the Super Bowl, Beyoncé released her new single "Formation" along with a music video. The song and video are very powerful statements about black women, black culture, and the #BlackLivesMatter movement.
Super Bowl Sunday rolled around and she performed "Formation" during the Halftime Show with a group of dancers dressed like Black Panthers (because 2016 is the 50th anniversary of the Black Panther Party for Self Defense) and holding #BlackLivesMatter signs. Also, one of the 'formations' they danced to was a large "X", which people are saying Beyonce did intentionally as a reference to Malcolm X.
...and white people on the internet went ape sh*t.
People started talking about how it was "racist" and "disrespectful" and the hashtag #BoycottBeyonce even starting trending for a short while on Twitter.
And SNL had the BEST comeback to all of this...
