Wendy Williams claims Beyonce and Jay-Z ‘shoulda stood up’ for Demi Lovato’s Super Bowl National Anthem

WENDY Williams slammed Beyonce and Jay-Z for not rising during Demi Lovato’s National Anthem performance at the Super Bowl on Sunday.

The 55-year-old said on her talk show on Monday that the music power couple “shoulda stood up.”

During Monday’s Hot Topics portion of The Wendy Williams Show, the host opened up about how “great” Demi’s singing was but how bad Jay-Z and Beyonce’s sitting during it was.

Wendy snapped: “You understand all eyes are on you, and you shoulda stood up. If you don’t like our country, then…”

She left the end of her statement open, but she sat back in her chair, shrugged up and down, crossed her arms and glared, making it clear to viewers what she was about to say.

Fans were not happy with her thoughts about the music duo sitting during the National Anthem.

One wrote on Twitter: “#WendyWilliams touts xenophobic and conservative talking point that if Beyonce & Jay Z do not like America then they should leave.”

Another said: “‘If you don’t like this country, you should…’ WHAT? Sounding like magat trash early today.”

Later, while talking about how much she enjoyed Shakira and Jennifer Lopez’s Super Bowl halftime show, Wendy couldn’t help but bring Bey and Jay, as well as their daughter, back up.

After one of her show colleagues mentioned being proud of JLo’s political statement of having kids in cages during her performance, Wendy said: “Yes, this is what Beyonce and Jay-Z and Blue Ivy don’t understand. Be proud.”

One user wrote: “How can you watch J Lo’s performance, depicting children in cages, and say that Black people should be proud & stand for the anthem? Foolish.”

Another tweeted: “She doesn't understand that it's about children being kidnapped from their parents and getting locked in cages, it's not a proud moment.”

A third said: “I know this flat booty bitch didn't just say if you dont stand for the anthem you're not proud to be an American.

"Wendy your son is rich but he is BLACK. Let's see how much you stand and pledge allegiance is he gets MURDERED BY A COP one day.”
