Earlier this week, Beyonce hit the stage for the Country Music Awards and performed her popular track “Daddy Lessons” alongside famous country group The Dixie Chicks.

The performance, however, became incredibly controversial after dozens of disgusting, ignorant social media users took to various platforms to write nasty, racist comments about Beyonce. Many of the disparaging remarks, questioning why Beyonce was even at the show, included the use of the words “n*gger” and “monkey.”

But instead of defending Beyonce, who we should add had the best performance of the night, the CMAs did the unimaginable and deleted everything pertaining to the singer and The Dixie Chicks on their main website.

On Thursday morning, you apparently couldn’t find a single reference to the Grammy Award winner anywhere on the site or any social media platforms.

Sources tell TMZ that the higher-ups “folded to fans who posted racist and other harsh comments” and that they were concerned “about the reaction to Beyonce’s support and the support of the Dixie Chicks for the Black Lives Matter movement.”

The Dixie Chicks were livid with the backwards response of the organization, tweeting: “If we all turn this up really loud, together we can drown out the hate.” The group included the Soundcloud audio of their performance from the awards show.

Thursday afternoon, however, the CMAs reversed everything and added the singer back to the website and social media. We guess the media attention was just too much for the country music association.

Beyonce hasn’t responded to the shocking actions of the CMAs, and she probably never will. But we wonder: Would the singer support the group again? Will Beyonce boycott next go around? Or does the singer completely understand?

To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.

But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.

“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”

In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.

When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”

Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”

Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
