Family Guy is known to be a bit crude, insensitive, unconventional and, duh, hilarious. But the cheeky show, which is known to tackle current events and pop culture storylines, took it to another level and recreated the famous elevator fight between Jay Z, Solange and Beyonce.
In a recent episode of the Fox comedy, Peter, (the main character) can be seen standing inside the elevator with the family. For Peter, his only goal is to go to the second floor business center to print out his boarding pass. But he winds up being a witness to one of the biggest entertainment stories of 2014.
In the black and white clip, set up to play as the elevator security footage, Peter witnesses Solange leap at Jay Z while Beyonce stands back and watches. “Oh hey, that’s gonna leave a mark,” Peter says.
To refresh your memory — following the 2014 Met Gala, the trio was in an elevator when a disagreement broke out between Jay and Solange. It never was confirmed what the fight was about, but it was rumored that it was centered around Jay’s relationship with designer Rachel Roy.
The irony is that two years later, Roy foolishly suggested she was the “Becky with the good hair” — the woman Beyonce sings about on her mega hit, “Sorry.”
