Well as much as we LOVE Bey and everything she does, apparently not everyone is on board with the Beyhive — we know, we don't understand it either…
In case you don't remember Tomi Lahren, she's a news anchor for multi-platform news network The Blaze, and she was one of several people who spoke out against the Formation singer's Super Bowlperformance.
Lahren even went on a scathing rant against Jay Z's wife calling her a "privileged Hollywood entertainment type" and bashed the singer for "ripping off the historical band-aid" on America's civil right's movement by promoting the Black Panthers.
Well despite the anchor's harsh words, TMZ reports Beyoncé's team wanted to use the first 30 seconds of Tomi's rant in Lemonade. However, the Queen's crew hit a wall when they contacted the anchor's people to ask for the rights and they were denied!
The request was sent some time last month and stated that Bey's peeps were probably only going to use the newswoman's audio, but there was a possibility they could use video as well.
Hmmm, we guess no one told Tomi that any press is good press?
Actually, considering she reportedly got death threats the last time, maybe she doesn't want her words publicized again so soon…
So what does exec producer Selena Gomez think of all this controversy? It's pretty much what she was going for. She told the AP:
"We stayed very true to the book and that's initially what Jay Asher created, was a beautifully tragic, complicated yet suspenseful story, and I think that's what we wanted to do. We wanted to do it justice and, yeah, that's going to come no matter what. It's not an easy subject to talk about, but I'm very fortunate with how it's doing. I'm overwhelmed. I'm very proud of it."
Whatever your reaction to the show, it is getting a lot more people to talk about the problem of teen suicide.
