President Obama Angers Supporters By Calling Beyonce A Role Model for His Daughters
By: Amanda Anderson-Niles
President Obama is in the middle of his current bid to maintain his title as President of the United States. And just like Obama’s last campaign, he has once again racked up in support amongst the Hollywood circle. In fact, come of Obama’s biggest supporters happens to be Jay-Z and Beyonce. Just last night, the couple hosted a upscale fundraiser for the President, and they were said to have raised about $4 million for his campaign.
Now the Obamas’ relationship with the Carters has always been a controversial one. Right now, you could probably find numerous articles written by Republicans and other critics who question why President Obama would even want to be associated with Jay-Z, who they say is nothing more than a former drug dealer and street hoodlum.
And Michelle Obama herself got caught up in some controversy for showing her admiration for Beyonce numerous times to the public. Not too long ago she caused a stink for saying that she would gladly take Beyonce’s life if she had the opportunity to be someone else for one day. And not too long after that, she was photographed with her two daughters, Malia and Sasha, at Beyonce’s comeback concert she had after birthing Blue Ivy.
So it should come as no surprise that yet again, some people are pissy about some comments Obama made at the Carter’s fundraiser.
When Obama got up to thank Jay-Z and Beyonce for their contributions to his campaign, and raising him millions; some people were outraged that he deemed Beyonce as a role model for his two daughters. He said:
“To J and B, thank you so much for your friendship. Beyonce could not be a better role model for my girls.”
Of course this didn’t sit well with some. While there are many who agree with the President, there seems to be just as many who question why the President of the United State’s two young daughters would be looking up to Beyonce as a role model.
Many criticisms included her sexy image (which some find too sexy during her performances) and skimpy clothing.
Here are some interesting tweets about the topic:
What say you? Is the outrage warranted, or do you agree with The President that Beyonce is a role model for our daughters?
