WATCH: Michelle Williams Defends Beyonce, Confronts Mike Huckabee on ‘The View’
Williams had some things to say to Huckabee, after he made some comments about Beyoncé that she didn’t agree with! Check out the video and let us know what you think!
Earlier this month, it was revealed that Huckabee made comments about Beyoncé’s music in his new book God, Guns, Grits, and Gravy. He also made comments about Beyoncé and her husband, Jay Z. In the book, Huckabee writes, “My reaction: Why? Beyonce is incredibly talented – gifted, in fact. She has an exceptional set of pipes and can actually sing. She is a terrific dancer – without the explicit moves best left for the privacy of her bedroom. Jay-Z is a very shrewd businessman, but I wonder: Does it occur to him that he is arguably crossing the line from husband to pimp by exploiting his wife as a sex object?”
Huckabee has been facing a ton of backlash for his comments. When he appeared on The View, Williams was a guest co-host, and she decided to confront him about his comments. Williams and Beyoncé were in Destiny’s Child together and have been friends for years. So, we love seeing Williams defend Beyoncé.
In the video, you’ll hear Williams say to Huckabee, “As someone who has definitely come up in a group with her, has seen her hard work and who she is. I just feel like, you know, that album and those songs it was that one moment where she decided to probably do some songs she’s always wanted to do, to shed that ‘I’m a good girl’ (image). She had some freedom, and she owned it and she took it. So, I was definitely offended, I’m not the Carter spokesperson, but to hear some of those comments that you said, I thought that were very, very low.”
Check out the video above to see and hear the confrontation. After you watch the video, let us know what you think! Do you like that Williams confronted Huckabee? Sound off in the comments!
