Beyoncé's Mom Lashes Out at Critics For Comments About Beyonce's Skin Complexion and Fashion Choices

Beyonce's mother, Tina Knowles, is fed up and calls out Beyoncé's critics about what she considers unfair criticism of her daughter's skin complexion, music, and image! Tina's scathe came after Beyoncé's recent film premiere for Renaissance: A Film by Beyoncé after many critics criticized Queen Bey for wearing platinum blonde hair, a customized, form-fitting, silver dress by Versace—some onlookers went as far as saying the starlet bleached her skin for the premiere as well. Yet, Bey's red carpet theme coincided with the overall theme (silver) for the Renaissance album and world tour she just completed.

Nevertheless, Tina is over the hateful comments and assumptions about Beyonce's life and career, and apparently, the recent comments about the starlet were the last straw.

Mama Knowles posted the following remarks on Instagram: "Came across this today and decided to post it after seeing all of the stupid, ignorant self-hating, racist statements about her, lightening her skin, and wearing platinum hair wanting to be white. She does a film called The Renaissance, where the whole theme is silver with silver hair, a silver carpet, and suggested silver attire, and you bozos decide that she's trying to be a white woman and is bleaching her skin?.. How sad is it that some of her own people continue the stupid narrative with hate and jealousy. Duh, she wore silver hair to match her silver dress as a fashion statement clown... ALIEN Superstar, duh! What's really sad is that a white woman had the audacity to reach out to Neal, Beyoncé's hairstylist, and say she was from TMZ, to say that the fans are saying that she wants to be white and she wanted to get a statement about it from Neal... Well, that made my blood boil that this white woman felt so entitled to discuss her blackness. What's really most disappointing is that some Black people, yes, you bozos that's on social media-Lying and faking and acting like you're so ignorant that you don't understand that black women have worn platinum hair since the Etta James days. I just went and looked at all the beautiful and talented black celebrities who have worn platinum hair, and it has been just about every one of them at one time or another. Are they all trying to be white? I am sick and tired of people attacking her. Every time she does something that she works her ass off for, and is a statement of her work ethic, talent, and resilience. Here, you sad little haters come out of the woodwork. Jealousy and racism, sexism, and double standards, you perpetuate those things. Instead of celebrating a sister or just ignoring her if you don't like her. I am sick of you losers. I know that she is going to be pissed at me for doing this, but I am fed up! This girl minds her own business. She helps people whenever she can. She lifts up & promotes black women and underdogs at all times."

The Renaissance tour skyrocketed with success. According to Variety, "Live Nation has announced that the superstar's global trek earned more than $579 million worldwide, with 2.7 million fans attending across 56 dates in 39 cities." Her red-carpet event for the Renaissance movie was a success for several reasons; the original members of Destiny's Child, Letoya Luckett, and LaTavia Roberson, joined Beyonce' and Kelly Rowland to celebrate their former group member, despite years of dissension. Michelle Williams, who joined the group after Letoya and LaTavia left, was also in attendance. For Destiny's Child fans, this was a beautiful thing!
