Jessica Williams Clap Back At Beyoncé Haters On “The Daily Show”
Jessica Williams is life!
The “Daily Show” correspondent clapped back at those who were offended and outraged by Beyoncé‘s too black and too strong “Formation” performance during the Super Bowl 50 Pepsi Halftime Show.
Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani accused the singer of using the platform to attack police officers while others questioned why Bey had to bring race into the Super Bowl.
To that, Jessica responded, “Race was brought in because Beyoncé was brought in. And brace yourself, you might want to sit down for this — but Beyoncé is black.” She added, “As a black person, you walk around every day constantly reminded that you are black. We’re more likely to get paid less, we’re more likely to get sent to prison and we’re more likely to win a dance competition. What? It’s not all bad.”
Jessica Williams’ summation of Beyoncé’s “Formation” music video, which dropped the day before the big game, was absolutely perfect:
Beyoncé calls out police brutality and the constant fear that black people have of the police. She even threw back to Hurricane Katrina. The Black Girl Magic in that video was out of control. She was like a beautiful, black Dumbledore, but wearing a really nice weave and $3000 worth of Gucci.
