Michelle Williams Reacts To Twitter Trying to Cancel Destiny’s Child’s ‘Cater 2 U’ For Being a ‘Slavery’ Song

Published: Tuesday 15th Jun 2021 by Rashad

The “retroactive cancellation express” has pulled up to Destiny’s Child‘s door.

17 years after the peak of their ‘Destiny Fulfilled’ hit ‘Cater 2 U,’ the trio have learned the song is under scrutiny for lyrics some women deem demeaning while others suggest the Rodney Jerkins-produced track is anti-feminist and anti-progressive in its promotion of subservience.

As news of the unexpected backlash reached the desk of group member/‘Unexpected’ diva Michelle Williams, she took to Instagram to respond.

Hear her hilarious reaction inside:

    Oh wow.
    People have nothing better to do.
    So then cancel Shakespeare and every other dramatic white person throughout literature.

    Music is hyperbolic and exists to capture extreme feelings we otherwise cannot express.
    Cater @ You is about giving a GOOD MAN the treatment a good man can get because he is treating her right.
    If you give the Cater 2 U treatment to a broke man with good D, that’s on YOUR choices and discernment.

    Maybe stop taking romantic advice from music.
    It’s like suing a romantic comedy director because your life didn’t go how the movie said it would.

    GROW.
    UP.

    Oh wait, these people are grown. This is what Black people have time to focus on?
    We don’t have the luxury to wax philosophic about song lyrics in LOVE songs. Love is kind of wanting to do loving actions for someone who brings you joy.

    I wish this were all satire, but I doubt it with this “WE NEED TO HAVE A CONVERSATION ABOUT”..”YOU GUYS AREN’T READY TO DISCUSS” crop of idiots. Focus on why you base your worth on being in a relationship and not increasing your net worth on your own.

      Dumb feminism 1 0 1.
      Not everything needs to be taken so literally.

    “Let me cater to you Cause, baby, this is your day”

    Literally anybody with common sense can see it’s a special day. It could be his birthday, he got a promotion, it’s not a daily thing. But in a society that reads the headline and cannot cite sources aside from Wikipedia, I shouldn’t be surprised that cognitive function is stunted.

    This cancel culture is dumb And black ppl are the biggest FOLLOWERS,it’s disgusting.

    The same ppl that don’t want to vote because “they don’t see change” or think that the BLM Movement is today’s equivalent of the iconic Civil Rights Movement have the audacity to sit on Twitter and dissect lyrics to a hit of it’s time because they disagree due to PERSONAL mistakes they’ve made? Yeah, read them hōes down Chelle! I’ll never understand the thought process of cancel culture thinking they hold any weight in the real world. Remember when everyone thought music and TV would be the downfall of the generations to come, they were wrong. It’s Social Media! These same ppl canceling DC’s “Cater To You” are also on Twitter selling p*** and arguing that they’re not prostitutes but ‘S** Workers’, 🤷🏾‍♂️❗

    Folks are really throwing out the word “cancel” for any old thing… I don’t see how any of those quoted tweets are “canceling” the song. They are literally just saying that the lyrics are wild. People have been saying that about countless songs when they come of age and realize the words they were singing during childhood.

    Ppl are sooooo dumb. What! 💀

  8. eric June 15, 2021

    I could be wrong, but I’m pretty sure there was some talk about this during the time of the song’s release and they addressed it then.

    A lot of songs won’t age well w the newest generation. They’ll be calling single ladies a pick me song soon enough

      …but, isn’t it? LOL

    The difference between growing up on TLC vs. Destiny’s Child. TLC told you not to date a scrub, how to be a boss, and helped your confidence. DC taught you to cater 2 a man and find one to pay your bills, bills, bills. Tisk tisk…
