Tina Knowles-Lawson Defends Daughter Beyonce Amid Tiffany Diamond Controversy

Tina Knowles-Lawson is slamming the haters.

Earlier this week, Tiffany & Co. released their new “About Love” campaign starring Beyonce and husband Jay-Z.

In the campaign photos, the 39-year-old entertainer is wearing Tiffany‘s iconic Yellow Diamond, that has only been wore by three previous women, including Audrey Hepburn and Lady Gaga. Beyonce is the first Black woman to wear the diamond.

After the campaign photos were released, many people took to social media to slam Beyonce for wearing the diamond, which is defined as a “blood diamond,” meaning it was mined and sold to fund military action against a government.

“It’s the fact that Beyoncé did a whole album and went mama Africa then went to wear a blood diamond,” on person tweeted. “I love Beyoncé but it’s very contradictory.”

Another tweeted, “Beyoncé doing a Tiffany’s campaign wearing a blood diamond doesn’t sit well for her brand ESPECIALLY given her African influenced work in the past few years.”

One fan did come to Beyonce‘s defense, tweeting, “Lady Gaga wore that diamond necklace and it was all love but as soon as it’s on Beyoncé’s neck y’all suddenly remember where it’s from and how it’s a blood diamond.”

Tina then took to Instagram to address all the criticism.

“How many of you socially conscious activist own diamonds ? I thought so !” Tina wrote. “Well guess what did you go to try to check to see where the diamond came from? Probably not ! ”

She added, “So when you guys get engaged you won’t have a diamond you gonna put on a sterling silver band And you better check out where it came from and the origin of where came from and why you add it check out the calls for the Leather that you weird because they made it came from another country to to ban and not buy diamonds right because your righteous !!”
