While most of us were giving Jay Z and Beyonce their due kudos for their contributions to the #BlackLivesMatter movement, Fox News was doing just the opposite. This past weekend, writer and organizer dream hampton took to Twitter to reveal that The Carters have donated “tens of thousands” of dollars toward bail money for protesters as well as other needs. But leave it to Fox & Friends Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade to find room for shade.
“We know that they’ve been supportive of the administration, over four million dollars donated over the course of time. So in the case of Ferguson, if you like it, then I guess you bring the bail for it,” Hasselbeck said, making a play off of Beyonce’s “Put A Ring On It.”
Steve Doocy adding in a jab for good measure, referring to the recent unrest in Baltimore as “lawlessness.”
“The lawlessness in Baltimore that we saw, and the people who got out, can thank Jay Z and Beyonce now,” he said.
