Fuck your feelings, Harry Belafonte is bombing first. The legendary singer and social activist has condemned music power couple Beyonce and Jay-Z for ‘turning their back on social responsibility’ in a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter.
When asked if he was happy with the image of minorities in Hollywood today, the 85-year-old replied: “Not at all. They have not told the history of our people, nothing of who we are. We are still looking.”
“We are not determinated. We are not driven by some technology that says you can kill Afghans, the Iraqis or the Spanish. It is all — excuse my French — shit. It is sad.”
“And I think one of the great abuses of this modern time is that we should have had such high-profile artists, powerful celebrities,” he continued. “But they have turned their back on social responsibility. That goes for Jay-Z and Beyonce, for example. Give me Bruce Springsteen, and now you’re talking. I really think he is black.”
