PEOPLE ARE NOW SAYING THAT THEY
PLAN ON BOYCOTTING RED LOBSTER BECAUSE BEYONCE SANG ABOUT IT. AFTER THAT SONG, SALES
INCREASED MORE THAN 33 PERCENT. NOW PEOPLE THINK
THAT BEYONC…
SHOULD NOT BE SUPPORTED. AND SINCE SHE LIKES TO TAKE HER MAN
TO RED LOBSTER, RED LOBSTER SHOULD NOT BE SUPPORTED. >> OKAY, SO BEYONC… SAYS THAT
SHE LIKES RED LOBSTER AND THAT SHE LIKES TO EAT CHEESE
BISCUITS. OKAY, SHOULDN'T SAY THAT, THAT WAS ME. AND THE REST
OF THE SONG SHE TALKS ABOUT CIVIL RIGHTS ABUSES AGAINST
BLACK PEOPLE. SHE POLITELY ASKS WILL PEOPLE STOP SHOOTING US.
OUTRAGEOUS. WHAT IS RED LOBSTER SUPPOSED TO DO? ARE THEY
SUPPOSED TO SAY WE DENOUNCE BEYONC… FOR MENTIONING US? ARE
THEY SUPPOSED TO PREEMPTIVELY SPIT IN HER FACE WHEN SHE DID THEM A SOLID? IF THE RIGHT WING
WAS SO POWERFUL, WHY DID THEIR SALES GO UP INSTEAD OF DOWN? >> THE THING ABOUT THIS THAT
IRRITATES ME IS HOW INSULTING IT IS TO BLACK PERFORMERS. IT SENDS
A MESSAGE THAT THEY ARE ONLY THERE TO ENTERTAIN US. DON'T
EXERCISE YOUR FREEDOM OF SPEECH OR YOUR RIGHT TO SHARE WHAT YOUR COMMUNITY IS GOING THROUGH. ALL
YOU NEED TO DO IS SHUT UP, DON'T MAKE US UNCOMFORTABLE AND
ENTERTAIN US. THAT MAKES ME ANGRY. I LOVE WHEN BLACK
PERFORMERS USE THAT PLATFORM TO SHARE THEIR EXPERIENCES. MUSIC
IS SOMETHING THAT UNITES EVERYONE. IT GIVES PEOPLE AN
OPPORTUNITY TO HEAR A DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE. TO TELL AN ARTIST TO SHUT UP AND ENTERTAIN
US ENRAGES ME. >> TWO QUICK THINGS. ONE, THEY
WOULD HAVE BLACK ENTERTAINERS IN THE SOUTH ENTERTAIN THEM AND
THEY WOULD HAVE TO KNOW THEIR PLACE. SO FOR PEOPLE TO SAY THAT
AGAIN IN A MODERN WAY IS DISGUSTING. SECONDLY, MUSIC IS
SUPPOSED TO CHALLENGE THE ESTABLISHMENT AND YOU AS A
PERSON. THIS IS TRUE OF ALL MUSIC. OLD-SCHOOL COUNTRY MUSIC,
JOHNNY CASH GIVING THE MIDDLE FINGER TO THE ESTABLISHMENT. ALL THESE THINGS MAKE YOU
THINK DIFFERENTLY. >> LADY GAGA WITH BORN THIS WAY.
THAT IS A MORE MODERN VERSION OF WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT. SHE CAME OUT WITH THAT MUSIC AND
IT RESONATED WITH A LOT OF PEOPLE. >> IMAGINE IF THE WORLD RAN ñ
AND MUSICIANS SANG SONGS ABOUT OBEY THE ESTABLISHMENT?
CAN YOU IMAGINE A SHITTIER SONG? >>THAT
SOUNDS LIKE CHRISTIAN MUSIC. >> THAT SOUNDS PREPOSTEROUS.
