CMAs Site Seemingly Erases Beyonce Mentions After Backlash

Beyonce‘s performance at the 2016 CMA Awards was probably one of the most talked about moments of the night, but mentions of the appearance were seemingly erased from the show’s website.

The entertainer sang a new version of her song “Daddy Lessons” featuring the Dixie Chicks and got a lot of acclaim from fans.

Sadly, there was also backlash from some country music fans who said that Beyonce did not have a place at the show. After the backlash was heard, all evidence of the performance was seemingly erased from the CMAs’ website and social media accounts.

This move then received criticism and the CMA account on Facebook ended up sharing the Dixie Chicks‘ post about the performance.

The Country Music Association released this statement: “CMA has not erased any mentions of Beyonce’s performance on the CMA Awards. In advance of the broadcast, CMA removed a five-second promotional clip from ABC.com and CMA’s Facebook page. The promo was unapproved and CMA removed it prior to the broadcast. Beyonce’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.”

Dixie Chicks: 'It Gets Better' Video

Martie Maguire and Emily Robinson of the Dixie Chicks, and more recently the Court Yard Hounds, speak out against bullying in support of the It Gets Better project.

Lots of celebrities have lent their support to the campaign after the recent suicides of multiple gay youth who were being bullied because of their orientation.

“If you are being bullied or teased for any reason, we want you to know that it does get better,” they said. “We can’t necessarily put ourselves in your shoes, but we do know from experience that being true to yourself and sticking to what your believe in and who you are, no matter what people say or think about you takes strength… we admire your strength and it does get better.”
