Country star Kenny Chesney may have the #1 album in the U.S. right now, but for the last three days he’s also been #1 on another tally:  the Beyhive hitlist.

Indeed, during Beyonce‘s controversy inciting performance with the Dixie Chicks at this year’s CMAs the camera panned to Chesney in the audience who seemed visibly uncomfortable.  The look of displeasure on his face during the ‘Daddy Lessons’ showing not only became the subject of many-a-meme, but also the catalyst for a brutal Twitter attack filled with death threats, attacks on his sexuality, personal life, and so much more.

Once the onslaught of insults reached a feverish pitch, Chesney took to social media to offer an official statement.  Read it below:



Via Associated Press:

In a statement released Friday, Chesney made it clear: “I love Beyonce… I loved her Super Bowl performance, her sense of how to make the music hit really hard – and give it drama when she’s onstage.”

Chesney added that her fans shouldn’t be so quick to judge him or assume to know what he was thinking.

His statement follows that of lead Dixie Chick Natalie Maines when she defended Bey:

  7. Dreazy Baby November 5, 2016

    I admire Beyoncé and have a tremendous amount of respect for her, but her fans are damn ridiculous at times. They are damn near a terrorist group

  8. Mark111 November 5, 2016

    Did they expect him to bounce around screaming YASSsss? Dumb pest.

    • Annalise November 5, 2016

      Guess he’s not as GAY as you are.

  9. ???????Chile, take this “Itty Bitty Piggy” to the market and make sure you hold her hand while crossing the street!??????? November 5, 2016

    They want her to host next year, even after all that controversy? Why does this woman slay so damn hard? It’s like the CMA’s are giving the country music fans the middle finger by wanting her to host next year.

    • FAF November 5, 2016

      Clearly a reach they know Beyoncé will not host no Damn cmas

      They’re just trying to save face

      They claimed they deleted the performance bc her team didn’t approve it

      If she performed on the show why would she not approve her performance to be on the website ?

  10. HailLegendBeysus November 5, 2016

    The Legendary and ICONIC Hive strikes again! Idky people act like the BeyHive are the only stan base that ever made death threats lol! I mean the Slavi on this site have gone as far as Bully an innocent child (Bkue), post people’s personal information and bully people based off their selfie (BeyHive can’t relate). But I guess the BeyHive is the worse fandom.

  11. Suicide Blonde November 5, 2016

    I don’t know how they can find this behavior funny or acceptable, they celebrate this kind of stuff, when in reality everybody is making fun of them, they just don’t get it.

    • Amerikkka’s Most Wanted ~ Tyler November 5, 2016

      You’re a racist tho.

    • Annalise November 5, 2016

      But racism is acceptable to you? BITçh bye!!

  12. B_Roni November 5, 2016

    Wow this is crazy. I now just retweet all that mess to be the 911 Twitter page. Even if I like Beyonce, everyone does not like her and everyone will not like her. Get over it. Little do they know Beyonce wouldn’t dare be supportive of people sending death threatss. Let one of them actually get caught and see if. Bey would come to their rescue lol. What goes around comes around.

    • Amerikkka’s Most Wanted ~ Tyler November 5, 2016

      Lying is a sin! You don’t even like Beyonce. Go to hell.

  13. Marley November 5, 2016

    Its obvious that the beyhive is mentally retarded and need to admitted.. quickly

  14. Jinkyz Threads and Gifts November 5, 2016

    Personally, I love BOTH Beyonce and The Dixie Chicks. Here at my female-owned, female operated independent clothing label, we celebrate powerful, outspoken, s*** women of any background, age, or orientation. Now we must “get in Formation” and rally together as Women to decide exactly which direction we want our country to go. Even if you don’t vote for Trump or Hillary, GO VOTE FOR SOMEONE!! and wear our exclusive Jinkyz Brand Satirical Presidential Campaign TShirts TO THE BOOTH!
