For some reason Mike Huckabee doesn’t have anything else to do with his time than to slam Beyoncé's lyrics and her relationship with her husband, Jay Z. On a daily basis, Huckabee sounds more and more like that old crotchety man who's upset that his Depends haven't been changed in five hours.
In Huckabee's new book, God, Guns, Grits and Gravy, the failed Republican presidential candidate accused Jay Z of pimping out Beyoncé. God forbid a grown woman embraces her own sexuality and happens to have made hundreds of millions by doing so.
During a recent appearance on The View, once again Huckabee was on his Beyoncé-hating spree. But in what clearly seemed like a setup, former Destiny's Child member Michelle Williams was a guest host and gave Huckabee a piece of her mind.
"You know what, you definitely can't mess with her," Williams said. "As someone who has definitely come up in a group with her, has seen her hard work and who she is, I just feel like, you know, that album and those songs … it's that one moment where she decided to probably do some songs she's always wanted to do to shed that 'I'm a good girl' [image]. She had some freedom and she owned it and she took it, so I was definitely offended.
"I'm not the Carters' spokesperson, but to hear some of those comments that you said, I thought were very, very, very low," Williams added.
Yes, Huckabee, they were very, very low.
Williams very politely tried to put Huckabee in his place, but chances are he's not going to change his opinion about one of the world's most popular singers. And I'm also quite sure Beyoncé and Jay Z are somewhere not caring about it.
