Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly is getting all riled up about Beyonce again, this time it’s over her music video for “Partition” off of her self-titled album. When he had Russell Simmons on his show The O’Reilly Factor, he started a debate about the message the video sends teens.
O’Reilly debated that Beyonce “glorifies having sex in the back of a limousine” in the video when "teenage girls look up to Beyonce, particularly girls of color.”
AceShowBiz reports Simmons defended the video and called it “art” but clearly O’Reilly didn’t want to hear it. "That's art?! Beyonce having sex in the back of a limo and referencing Monica Lewinsky, that's art?" he asked.
“I'm saying why on earth would this woman do that. Why would she do it when she knows the devastation that unwanted pregnancies... and fractured families - why would Beyonce do that?" O’Reilly continued.
When Simmons tried to change the subject and promote his new book, O’Reilly told him both he and Beyonce have an "obligation to protect children” and that songs and accompanying music videos like this don’t help, E! Online reports.
Beyonce is currently on her Mrs. Carter World Tour. On Monday, she was in Dublin, Ireland, where she will perform four sold-out concerts.
