Mom: Tina Knowles will be in the movie
But in true Beyhive form, fans and even her mother Tina Knowles stubbornly responded to critics.
“Lmao the annoying thing about the capitalist argument with Beyonce is Lemonade, her ‘black’ album is one of her best-selling albums,” the fan began in the tweet.
“So when we talk about profit, she wouldn’t go on to make music that emphasizes blackness if it were just for profit.”
Beyonce’s mom then took the caption and replied.
“Thank you, I couldn’t have said it better. It is really sad that the women who shout the loudest are the “protect the black woman” that they are the ones trying to break her down. Sisters wake up !!!! she started.

MOTHER: Beyonce heard the video tell in a soothing tone
66-year-old Tina went on to explain how her daughter was taught as a young girl to help lift other women, not break them down.
“She interferes in her own affairs, does not criticize anyone, gives her time and money, and dedicates her art to boldly show the royalty and beauty of our heritage and our journey! Her job is to change the story! To show that we didn’t start as slaves, but that we were kings and queens before we were forced into slavery, ”she continued.
In an emotional plea, Tina asked critics of Black Is King to take stock of themselves and their hatred.
“I ask you to examine your heart and really see what your motive is and what it is nourished by! Then take that energy criticism, and break it down and turn it into an action that fights against the systemic racism that is currently going on and going on forever, “she said.

Tina ended with the statement, “She is entitled to her heritage, just like everyone else in the world. Just think of young sisters, I love you and brothers, thank you for your balance and your voice. ‘
