Beyoncé Fires Back at Lemonade Lawsuit


Last month visual artist Matthew Fulks slapped Beyoncé with a copyright infringement lawsuit claiming she ripped off concepts from his film short "Palinoia" for her new album "Lemonade [click here if you missed that]."

Beyonce fires back...

In legal docs dug up by TMZ Beyonce disputes Fulks' claims pointing out,
"Lemonade" portrays "an African-American woman who progresses through stages of suspicion, denial, anger and, ultimately, reconciliation in her relationship."
While "Palinoia" is about a "white man who is distressed in the wake of a failed relationship."
The case is pending.

Nice try. So the only difference between this scenario is one is a "black woman" and the other is a white guy? Lol!!

Cut the check, Bey.

@Ron, Bey hasn't always stuck by black people, hence her saying she wishes she was Latina.

Has anyone seen Julius, Beyonce's bodyguard?

Black power! Support our own!

Beyonce said that she was in control of every aspect of her career. Therefore, this man is correct in suing her.

Lemonade was nominated for an Emmy. Probably by the shameless Beyonce and her team. It's comedy for them to nominate stolen work... it won't win.

What part of his work in his video has been portrayed for centuries? Hummm? She copied from him. From the writing on the wall, to the parking deck, to the way she hangs her ugly head! There's always someone to come out of the woodwork to defend Beyonce's BS. I'm over her stans.

It's over for Beyonce.

So many trolls and bitter biatches... First of all, Beyonce did it better, will always do it better, and you will continue to check for her because she is fire. 11:18 - go get your life! If you are Black and you see another Black doing something wrong, I doubt you do anything to help them out in the real world either. And while there are no words in the English or any other language to describe you: YOU are the POS and you probably lick Hillary Clinton's @ss while taking Donald Trump's d3ck up your @ss. And with that, I'll leave it at that.

I understand what some of you are saying (@10:43 & 9:19) about supporting our people, BUT right is right and wrong is wrong. I don't feel we shouldn't point it out when members of our community are doing wrong or when they make a misstep. And to
Use the argument "well white ppl support their own even when they are wrong" is imho not a valid argument. Two wrongs don't make a right and in our struggle to throw off our oppressors, we shouldn't become just like them.

We are better than that. Calling out others for their mistakes is the best way to encourage growth and development. It's better not to wallow in our errors. Again - WE ARE BETTER THAN THAT!

Beyone is a thief plan as simple....Any fool with eyes can see she stole her wholr video concepts and storyline from that man.

Niggas love defending a thief, a crook, a gangbanger and a thug. Hence we get Beyonce stans and #BlackLivesMatter.

@1:10 I love your attitude - #TRUTH! Note: there are many in the black culture that do not subscribe to the behavior of the Carters. Look to them for guidance and fine examples of humanity.

I remember seeing an interview when bey hwas still in DC, the early days, and hey were like besides singing and performing what do you like to do

Bey was like I'm always working I'm always watching videos or looking through magazines for ideas, she was maybe 16, she's been doing this her whole career she doesn't know any better and sounds like all she knows how to do

Your brain has to have reached a.certain level of acquired learning to create and it simply doesn't seem like beyonces has. I think it also had them being homeschooled much earlier (and its obvious) then they now try to claim, she w

How is it stealing if there is no copyright or trade mark to the work involved? I can copy what he did and change some of the scenery all day long and it would not be Stealing he had a concept and she had a similar concept the difference is the music involved. If the music like blurred lines would have been similar to his them maybe he might have something going on but it is not. And yes they have been stealing from us for years inventions, patents, dancing and music so where were you people then if stealing is stealing and you cannot support her just because she is Black did you stand up when Elvis was copying other Black performers and got credit for the movement and when Bo Derek wore the braids and white folks acted like she started a trend for Black folks. So really standup and support Blacks that is why we are divided as a race break that old slave mentality we are no longer in the field we are all in the house.

And at 4:03 pm why don't you look at the real facts of the Caucasian race? 84 percent homicides are carried out by whites killing whites and no media outlet will say white on white murder. Whites kill more whites than Blacks kill each other.
Whites commit more crimes than any other race. White people kill more members of vulnerable populations than any other race. Family members and significant others are also often targets of homicide, rather than random victims. White people by the numbers are far more likely to kill children and the elderly than any other race. Additionally, white people commit more sex-related and gang-related homicides than any other race.
Gang murders are most common among white gangs. While a lot of attention has been given to the gang-related homicides in Chicago’s predominantly-black South side, very little press has been devoted to covering the epidemic of white-on-white gangland murders. So wake up white people and look at yourself and yes Black Lives Matter.

At 12:43 you sound like the stupid one who has been brained washed to believe that Jay Z and Beyoncé are anything other than business Entrepreneurs trying to getting ahead just like the whites folks in corporate America. How is it possible for them as a couple to poison the Black community by doing what? It is comments like yours that is doing the poisoning with the misconception of being Black. So müssen Sie ein Leben erhalten gehen

Slave owners were "business entrepeneurs trying to get ahead" as well. So is Donald Trump. When you promote capitalism and materialism as an IDEAL to the masses when it's not possible for everyone to thrive under that system you directly set people up for failure which breeds depression and contempt in society. This is why people hate the Carters, Trump, Taylor Swift etc. It has nothing to do with color or "supporting your own", they are NOT our own. They are CORPORATE owned, and its not the black community's responsibility or best interest to support the Carters or any other corporate entity.

In short, The Carters = WALMART. Some people love and live by Walmart, others wont step foot in one and think they should go out of business because of all the people they fucked over. Since you know so much about corporate America you should understand that.

The carters are owned since day 1 they signed with Sony and promote all the thongs that keep us from reaching our potential, they are poison sent by poison. Paid by poison, nothing good comes from them, even in her so called back anthem she is nodding to white supremqcy...Becky with Good hair, yellow bone she is an uneducated narcissitic disgrace
