Roseanne Attacks Beyonce Over Etta James Tribute

Legendary R&B singer, Etta James, passed away on January 20th due to complications of Leukemia.

Among many public figures and celebrities, Beyonce paid tribute to James on her website posting “Etta James was one of the greatest vocalists of our time. I am so fortunate to have met such a queen.”

Beyonce sang James’ ‘At Last’ at the inaugural ball for President Obama and also portrayed the singer in the film, Cadillac Records.

Comedian Roseanne Barr was not pleased with Beyonce’s tribute. It offended her to such a degree that she decided to publically lambast her on Twitter.

“I lost ALL respect for Obama when he dissed Etta James in favor of Beyonce. No respect for women at all, I thought-Etta was a hero 2 women. I loved Etta James -and yes that did it for me – He hurt her when she was ill”

I have not listened to anything Beyonce or Jay z has said or recorded since they did that to Etta. Their arrogance was disgusting. Beyonce’s fans are really ignorant-she should not be proud of entertaining drooling mutants! People are telling me that some of beyonce’s fans can spell and have graduated from high school!”

After tweeting these comments, many of Beyonce's loyal fans sent rude and hateful messages to Roseanne. Instead of ignoring them, Roseanne decided to respond to so many of them that many believed her Twitter account had been hacked into.

After a short time of spewing hateful and offensive messages, Roseanne realized her error and wrote “I sincerely want2 apologize 4 the rude comments I made2 twitters defending the fabulously talented Beyonce. I reverted 2 stand up slams.”

Although it’s apparent this “apology” is very insincere, at least it ended the borage of messages flooding her Twitter feed.

Why do you think Roseanne reacted in such a manner?
