Amy’s Beyonce Video Slammed As Racist

I’m not a big defender of Amy Schumer but I’m not sure I’d go so far as to say her parody of Beyonce’s “Formation” is racist. Schumer mimicked choreography from the video of the “Lemonade” hit. Beyonce’s song is centered around black female empowerment. Twitter users slammed Schumer’s sketch as distasteful and racist. In a statement, Schumer thanked Tidal – which is owned by Beyonce’s husband Jay-Z – for releasing the video. Watch and decide for yourself.
