It may be petty, but it’s a big deal as far as Tina Lawson is concerned. Yes, Beyoncé‘s mama is concerned about the hate her daughter is getting on social media for leaving the BET Awards after her unbelievable show-opening performance with Kendrick Lamar … to fly to London for her Formation Tour show.

If you watched the show, Bey won two awards and Tina accepted them on her daughter’s behalf and explained to the audience why she was doing so. Well, that wasn’t quite good enough for some who pointed out that the Formation London show doesn’t actually start for a few days. That started the jokes that Beyoncé just didn’t want to be at the show any longer than she needed to.

As you can imagine, Tina wasn’t havin’ it and headed to Instagram to clap back.

She went on to say, “This is exactly what I was talking about . We start lies and false rumors about our entertainers we celebrate when they stumble, we hope that they fall . We put them against each other when it’s room for them all! We talk negative about them and even their children which should be off limits . When they are gone we cry and say how much we loved them and cherish them we salute them in tributes . Well how about we do that when they are here 🌷I am sorry this is soo long but I had to get it off my chest! You guys are soo sweet and understand please! I I know I owe no one an explanation this is for me not anyone else . I am tired of letting people tell my story ! As Micheal Jackson would say “with Love”. Wake up people ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️💜💜💜God Bless all of you ❤️”
