After Beyoncé performed at Wednesday's night's CMA's, the organization made the not so smart decision to remove her and the Dixie Chicks from their website to pull any proof of their existence on the show. Claiming they "didn't have permission to post" , The shade didn't go unnoticed by the Beyhive, and they are SWARMING.
It wasn't hard to predict some folks would be pissed to see Beyoncé performing in "their" country space after the huge backlash she got from conservatives for her Superbowl performance and "Formation" song. While the ratings were slightly lower than last year's (12.6 million compared to 2015's 13.68 million), last year there was no World Series competition. So it's possible the ratings would have been even lower had Beyoncé not been a surprise performer who was announced hours before the show.
Still, the hate for Beyoncé riled up again today as the CMAs website and social media were covered in Beyonce & Dixie Chicks recaps and promos and imagery from last night. A few hours later, everything was gone.
Comments on the videos and promo materials on Instagram ranged from calling Beyonce a "Black Panther b*tch" to "n***er b*tch" to telling her she needs to get back in her place.
And we all saw Kenny Chesney's "Excited" face during her performance.
Gladly, Dixie chicks singer Natalie Maines has jumped to Bey's Defense Via Instagram and even found a little humor in the situation...
