I’m reposting this because it is my most viewed post ever AND my least liked, which I find fascinating.
I also want to clarify something important.
If the video RUN (below) was an R rated movie I saw at the movie theatre, I would think nothing of it because I am that desensitized now. I am not against violent movies adults pay to go see. I’m pretty Libertarian like that, Quentin Tarantino.
But this video RUN was paid for by Jay-Z and Beyonce as a promotional video for their upcoming tour. They made it for fun, then they put it on You-Tube for every kookaburra on the planet to see…for free…as many times as they’d like…over and over and over again.
I find this egregious as Beyonce also requests below We Demand a Plan. I think we’d all LOVE a plan. Was this in the plan? This is why I think Solange lost her mind and attacked Jay-Z in that elevator at the Standard.
Do we give carte blanche to our influencers and icons to ask us this:
And then do this? (Warning: This video is rated R.)
What do you think?
