Tina Knowles Throws Shade At Grammys After Jay-Z Is Snubbed
Hov's critically acclaimed 13th studio album was nominated for eight Grammys, making him the most-nominated artist of the night, but unfortunately, he didn't receive a single award for the album.
While fans weren't too happy about the Tidal owner's shut out, his mother-in-law, Tina Knowles-Lawson, also decided to take a jab at the Recording Academy. The matriarch believed her son-in-law was indeed snubbed at the ceremony.
On Monday, Jan. 29, Ms. Tina took to her Instagram to share a photo of her daughter and Jay-Z dressed up for the awards show.
"Last night at the Fammys oops sorry I mean Grammys must have been a Freudian slip," she captioned the now-deleted post.
The mother of two also quoted one of Hov's wordplays from his 4:44 albums, "Smile."
The Classy Clap Back Queen
The Bey Hive knows that Mama Tina is known for throwing shade when necessary.
In December 2017, the fashion designer served up a classy clap back for Tomi Lahren after controversy surrounded Beyoncé's presentation of Colin Kaepernick with Sports Illustrated's Muhammad Ali Legacy Award.
As she beamed with pride, Mama Tina shared a photo of Beyoncé handing Kaepernick his award.
In her lengthy caption, she began by thanking Beyoncé for being brave enough to say what many are thinking and explained that she disagrees with the fact that when someone protests racism and injustice, they are being "Un American."
Her disagreement with protesting racism and injustice being "Un American" caused her to call out those that refused to speak out against inequality in America.
"If you are a person that is a good human being and devoid of racism but that when you hear or see injustices being done to someone else and you don't stand up and say something about it, when you can conveniently look the other way, you are complicit in this behavior and are almost as guilty as the person perpetrating it!" Lawson wrote.
Following her statement, the 64-year-old received tons of comments praising her for clapping back at those who tried to slam her daughter.
Although Ms.Tina wasn't too happy about the Grammy Awards, the Carters were still acknowledged by fellow attendees as they made a statement along with their daughter, Blue Ivy.
