Beyonce’s ‘Partition’ Video Pegged as ‘Exploitative Garbage’ by Bill O’Reilly
Bill O’Reilly is not a fan of Beyonce. On Monday night’s (March 10) episode of ‘The O’Reilly Factor,’ The conservative talk show host blasted the superstar for her sexy music video ‘Partition,’ claiming that it sets a bad example for young girls of color and leads to unwanted pregnancies.
“Why on earth would this woman do that?” O’Reilly asked guest Russell Simmons about Bey’s video. ‘Partition’ is one of the singer’s sexiest visuals from her eponymous album, with overt references to fornicating in the back of a limousine. O’Reilly called the video “exploitative garbage that you know harms impressionable children.”
Simmons tried to defend Beyonce’s visual as art but as expected, the talk show host wasn’t buying it.
This isn’t the first time the songstress has received criticism from the right wing. Last year, Rush Limbaugh claimed that her song ‘Bow Down’ and the Mrs. Carter Show World tour were anti-feminist. “Because she married a rich guy,” he explained. “She’s even calling herself Mrs. Carter on the tour… She has shelved Beyonce… She now understands it’s worth it to bow down.”
