Beyonce Using Slave Labor in Sri Lanka?


Beyonce embroiled in a brand new scandal as workers reveal her Ivy Park sports wear line is manufactured in a Sri Lankan sweatshop...

From The Sun
Beyonce says she wants her Ivy Park gym gear to support and inspire women — while Topshop claims it “empowers women through sport”.
But poverty-stricken seamstresses making some of the clothes in the MAS Holdings factory in Sri Lanka earn just £4.30 a day.
The workers, mostly young women from poor rural villages, can only afford to live in boarding houses and work more than 60 hours a week to make ends meet.
Most are reluctant to speak out for fear of losing their jobs.
Campaigners insist the women are being exploited and treated like slaves.
One machinist told The Sun on Sunday: “When they talk about women and empowerment this is just for the foreigners. They want the foreigners to think everything is OK.”
Speaking at her cramped 100-room boarding house near the factory in Katunayake, close to Colombo airport, she said: “All we do is work, sleep, work, sleep.”

Beyonce knows no better and doesn't have the conscious awareness to question - she only sees dollar signs! With that said, TopShop is in charge of production, not Beyonce.

This is not news, like what clothing designer doesn't have a sweatshop factory that's the real question.

This isn't news. Most of these celeb lines are made cheaply in factories. Beyonce only cares about the CHECK.

A real feminist wouldn't support slave labor for women no matter what profit is to be made. ijs

Like she is the only designer that does that. Others do it and will continue to do it .

She used a sweat shop for House Of Dereon. Does no one remember that? Why are y'all surprised? Bey isn't really about women empowerment. It just sounds good.

Just because "others" do it doesn't make it right. I couldn't sleep knowing I'm making millions of dollars from SLAVE LABOR.

After all her reckless talk, I wonder if she stepped on the wrong toes re: the Prince situation?
