After the CMA's, all references to Beyonce's performance scrubbed from social media accounts - because????

Yup... racist, country-music fans.

Not all, country music fans. Just the racist peckerwoods.

But, I thought there was no racism problem in this country?

Enjoy the flickering light on your candle that is about to get snuffed out.

Who is getting snuffed out? Declaring that the CMA's actions were racist is racist. What evidence do you have that it actually was?

Quote:

Sources directly connected with the CMAs tell TMZ, the honchos folded to fans who posted racist and other harsh comments. We're told the honchos were especially concerned about the reaction to Beyonce's support and the support of the Dixie Chicks for the Black Lives Matter movement.

Some of the comments included, "That's right folks. Beyonce performed at the CMAs last night & is on a mission to take country music away from us, hardworking white people!" And, "Beyonce overrated racist nigger bitch."


It's hard to ignore the irony inherent in the tweet "Beyonce overrated racist nigger bitch."

Is TMZ a pretty legit source? We have an official response from CMA.

Quote:
"CMA has not erased any mentions of Beyoncé's performance on the CMA Awards," organizers said in a statement. "In advance of the broadcast, CMA removed a five-second promotional clip from ABC.com and CMA's Facebook page. The promo was unapproved and CMA removed it prior to the broadcast. Beyoncé's performance with Dixie Chicks was a highlight of the evening and we are continuing to share the amazing full-length performance clip via our official social channels." The CMA also included a link to Beyoncé and the outspoken country trio's performance on ABC.com.



Quiet. You'll ruin the mood.

The irony that liberals don't see here is amazing....

I don't watch any of the awards shows...was she any good? I would assume she'd do a country western tune of some kind and maybe she was good...she's pretty talented. If she didn't do a country western tune it was definitely a poor choice.

Now the Dixie Chicks, I would have disbarred from ever attending again. But that's because I take being called a criminal and stuff kinda personal like...your mileage may vary.
