Beyonce's post-election notice
Beyonce` made me shake my head after election night when she updated her Tumblr and new Instagram account with a photo of a hand-written note that read “TAKE THAT MITCHES” (the photo has since been removed). I was happy to see President Obama re-elected like any other supporter, but I found the posting to be in poor taste. It’s one thing to express elation, but once you use the competitor’s name or image (especially as a replacement for the expletive “bitches”), it becomes personal and more like an attack or insult, versus an endorsement for someone else. Had Romney won and someone posted something similar about Barack Obama, it would be deemed arrogant, disrespectful and perhaps racist depending on the wording. Also, Beyonce` has to keep in mind that she is a public figure with a diverse fan-base. She clearly didn’t consider how her fans who voted for Romney would feel. No, I’m not suggesting that she keep her political views quiet; I’m suggesting that she keep it classy. There was no need to gloat or disrespect the governor in order to celebrate. What do you all think?
Seriously Beyonce`, WTH?!?
Most people figure out pretty quickly that I LOVE Beyonce`. She is my queen diva of choice. But every now and then, she does something that irritates or perplexes me. Here, I tell what's been buggin me about the Bee lately (with reviews and love for the Queen Bee in between).
