Beyonce's performance at the CMAs 2016 has polarised the social media over whether the country music show needed a pop star performance. While fans of Queen Bey supported her during the Twitter war, there were several others who were unimpressed by the Formation singer's performance.
However, the entire controversy has reportedly affected the pop diva who is 'feeling awful' for the hurtful comments she received on social media and is worried for his daughter Blue Ivy's future in a world where 'racism and sexism' still exist.
"She is feeling awful that her daughter is going to grow up in a world where racism and sexism still exists. But she's confident that, even with so much work still needing to be done, that Blue Ivy will eventually get to a place in the world where she never has to deal with the hate that she does," an inside source told Hollywood Life.
"It is a long road ahead, but something Bey has to believe in before it really takes her into a dark, emotional place. Bey's emotions are all over the place right now, but mostly geared towards Blue and hoping that the future is much brighter than the present," the source added.
Country music fans lashed out at the organisers for bringing a non-country singer on stage while others found her single Formation controversial and called her a 'cop hater' as they believed the hit number incited police hatred.
Soon after the protest, the CMA award organisers deleted videos of the 35-year-old pop diva's performance. However, later they released a statement in response to the backlash of removing promotional materials involving the Drunk in Love singer.
Here is what they said: "CMA has not erased any mentions of Beyoncé's performance on the CMA Awards. In advance of the broadcast, CMA removed a 5-second promotional clip from ABC.com and CMA's Facebook page. The promo was unapproved and CMA removed it prior to the broadcast. Beyoncé's performance with Dixie Chicks was a highlight of the evening and we are continuing to share the amazing full-length performance clip via our official social channels."
