Beyonce’s Fans Torch Trump Supporter Who Likened His Comments to Bey’s Lyrics

By Emily Zanotti | 4:06 pm, October 12, 2016

Beyonce’s fans, colloquially known as the “Bey-hive,” do not take kindly to the slander of their fearless, booty-licious leader. And they are ferocious in their defense,  committed to their ideology, and unparalleled in their emoji deployment.

One of Donald Trump’s surrogates, former New York Lieutenant Governor Betsy McCaughey found out the hard way that Beyonce fans especially do not like it when Republican commentators to cast aspersions on the pop superstar to defend their nominee.

McCaughey tried to justify Donald Trump’s derogatory and sexually charged comments about women, caught on tape during an Access Hollywood interview in 2005, by pointing out that Beyonce uses salty language on her albums, thus deteriorating modern culture.

McCaughey even quoted Bey’s most recent release, Formation, telling CNN, ” ‘I came to slay, bitch. When he F me good I take his ass to Red Lobster.”‘

Social media fired back on Facebook — and the retribution was swift and full of cartoon bees.

When McCaughey had to shut down her Facebook page — it was being absolutely overrun — the Bey-Hive came for her on Twitter.

Beyonce, herself, of course, is an ardent Hillary Clinton supporter. Beyonce and her rapper-turned-music mogul husband Jay-Z are also close friends with President Barack Obama.

McCaughey has not commented on her run-in with the Beyonce fandom, but she’ll probably be pretty glad when she never has to see an emoji ever again.
