A recent poll has named Beyoncé as the most politically divisive person in the country, incredulously outscoring the likes of Fox News host Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh.
The poll, conducted by Morning Consults, showed among polled Democrats the singer had a favorability of 63 percent, compared to -3 percent among Republicans. She heads the list as Hannity trails behind with a 28 percent net favorability among Republicans and -37 percent for Democrats.
Limbaugh, talk show host Ellen DeGeneres, NBA star LeBron James, rapper Jay-Z, singer Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Rihanna and George Clooney round out the top 10 spots on the list.
Last month the survey polled 6,609 adults in the United States about different celebrities, including rappers Drake, Nas, J Cole and Bruno Mars and Dave Chapelle.
It’s a testament that the most “divisive” entertainer would be a Black woman who has pushed boundaries in her artistic career and made generational wealth for her family through her talents and business ventures. And, there are so many other entertainers who did not make the list, including Kanye West and Donald Trump. So we have questions…
It could be that some were still bothered with her 2016 endorsement of presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, or her autonomy as a GROWN BLACK WOMAN. From her stirring anthems in Lemonde, which showcased Black womanhood, healing and solidarity, to her 2016 performance at the Super Bowl, folks, have really been big mad at the progressive growth in honoring her Blackness.
The gag is, we’re sure she’s somewhere still riding the high of her OTRII world tour, her accolades and could honestly care less.
Though the article was initially posted by Morning Consults, a post by political outlet The Hill, got a majority of the responses. Hit the flip for the internet’s reaction to the news.
