A video taken during Demi Lovato’s rendition of the National Anthem at Super Bowl LIV shows Beyoncé, Jay-Z and Blue Ivy sitting. In the clip, there are many other people sitting down around them but that didn’t stop the trolls from attacking the family.
Beyoncé appears unbothered amid the controversy and posted personal snaps with her family at the game. Blue Ivy stole the show before the game even started by throwing footballs on the field with her dad.
Conservative mouthpiece, Tomi Lahren, who often attempts to disparage Jay-Z and Beyoncé felt some type of way about the video. She always includes a mention of Jay-Z’s past to try and hurt him.
She wrote, “Beyoncé & Jay-Z (former crack dealer)sit for the national anthem because apparently the United States of America has oppressed them with millions upon millions of dollars & fans. Sounds rough. Maybe they should try another country that allows them a little more freedom & success?
One fan had this to say about the video, “That whole section that Beyoncé and Jay Z were in didn’t stand for the national anthem. Media and people trying to make them the founders of the Black Panther Party is interesting.”
“The funny part about all of this is, the angry white people in America won’t get a single response from Beyoncé ? in the comments mad, fuming, and foaming at the mouth meanwhile Bey and Jay dont give no fu–s,” said another.
Get me my leash

Another pointed out, “If you’re furious that Beyoncé & Jay-Z didn’t stand for the National Anthem, but aren’t upset about the 3 white people sitting alongside them, you need to examine your bias.”
Cardi B jumped in to defend Beyoncé writing to Tomi, “Get me my leash.” The singer has feuded with Tomi in the past on social media.
Jay-Z recently sat down with the New York Times to discuss his partnership with the NFL.
