The Beyhive was not here for a tweet in which rapper NoName mentioned Beyoncé.
NoName tweeted, “I wish Angela got the love Beyonce gets,” referring to American political activist and philosopher, Angela Yvonne Davis.
NoName continued, “It’s cool seeing all the Angela Davis threads denouncing the need for idol worship and highlighting how celebrity is a capitalist project which Dr. Davis is fundamentally against. big facts. I still wish the world stopped and listened when she spoke the way it does for others.”
Now, it seems like the tweets were harmless, yet, after receiving tons of backlash from Queen Bey fans- NoName deleted her tweets and haven’t been active on Twitter since.
Fans have mixed reactions to the tweet. Take a look.
Cole “instead of talking down on people who don’t have access to the same information you have, maybe try to educate them instead, but you don’t have to be condescending, we’re all fighting the same fight”
NoName “y’all love Beyoncé so much but dgaf about Angela Davis LMAOOOOO”

Lmao they were supporting Noname when she was criticizing J cole because he wasn’t tweeting about the protests meanwhile the man was on the streets protesting ,he replied her and they said he was bullying a lady. Now that she mentioned Beyonce ,they want to rip her head off 😂.

Why can’t NoName just live in her purpose and do her social justice without having to bring up other people?
She just apologized for releasing the song about J Cole because it was a distraction ONLY to distract again with a tweet about Beyonce.
WTF for, hun?
