Paul Mooney Blasts Beyonce and OprahPublished by Runteldat on Friday, January 22, 2010 at 12:00 am.
Comedian Paul Mooney has lashed out at Beyonce, calling her a “wild horse” for allegedly not being as gracious as she lets on.
While promoting his new book, Black Is The New White, which chronicles his career and work with Richard Pryor, Mooney called Kanye West his hero for “scaring that little country singer.”
That country singer would be Taylor Swift, who Kanye is still feeling the clap back over after interrupting her speech on stage at the VMAs.
Mooney took issue with Beyonce allowing Taylor to give her speech a second time during Bey’s own win.
Mooney said: “If she’s that gracious why didn’t she do that with Etta James and that’s her peer.”
He then said black people are “sometime” about how they treat their legends claiming no white singer would do that to Barbara Streisand.
Maybe he could take that up with the Obamas since they’re the ones who invited Beyonce and asked her to sing.
Or maybe, just maybe he could let it go given it was a year ago.
Oh and Mooney didn’t stop at Beyonce. He also branded Oprah as “Aunt Jemima with a degree.”
