"First it was hands up, don’t shoot, then it was burning down buildings and looting drug stores, all the way to #OscarSoWhite. And now, even the Super Bowl halftime show has become a way to politicize and advance the notion that black lives matter more," Lahren complained during her Tuesday show.

She continued, "Beyonce was ramrodding an aggressive agenda down our throats, and using fame and entertainment value to do so. Congratulations, Beyonce, you made your statement. The Super Bowl, the most watched event on television. A game that brings Americans of every color, background and political party together. A game where black fans cheer next to white fans.

"Good for you, you made headlines. You’re just like President Obama, Jada Pinkett Smith, Al Sharpton and so many others just can’t let America heal, keep ripping off the historical Band-Aid. Why be a cultural leader when you can play the victim, right?”

Lahren went on to say: "White people like your music too, white people buy your songs on iTunes, memorize your lyrics and admire your talent and beauty…. Little white girls want to be like you just as much as little black girls do. But instead of recognizing that, you rather perpetuate the great battle of the races. Your husband was a drug dealer. For fourteen years, he sold crack cocaine. Talk about protecting black neighborhoods? Start at home."

A day after Lahren's awkward rant, Hip Hollywood’s Eric Berry blasted her remarks in a column on February 10, referring to them as "total lunacy".

"What Tomi gets, but will not admit because she’s a paid GOP troll, is that the #BLM message has always been 'Black lives matter'. Not more. Just matter," he wrote. "Beyonce and so many others like her are not using their voices to abolish slavery, or lobby congress to establish a 15th Amendment, so the ‘historical bandaid’ line is nutter (not to be confused with utter) nonsense.

"Lahren’s real issue with Beyonce’s militant dance off with Bruno Mars becomes apparent: that being what gives this Black entertainer the right to publicly denounce the unjustified murders of Black civilians instead of entertaining me." he added.
