The other day while filming in Hawaii; Amy Schumer recruited a few women including Goldie Hawn to recreate their version of Beyonce’s Formation anthem. The moment came and was quickly met with criticism for Schemers attempt in making humor with the song who’s lyrics that takes a more serious tone. Well Schumer went on to to acknowledge the video’s criticism but that didn’t slow down people asking her, “why she did it in the first place?”
The video dropped quietly on Friday afternoon. It was a 30-second tease of Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn’s parody of Beyoncé’s now iconic “Formation” video. The full video could be viewed on Tidal, the music-streaming platform owned by Beyoncé’s husband, Jay Z, viewers were told. Schumer also posted the video in its entirety on her YouTube channel on Saturday. Wanda Sykes and Joan Cusack also appear in it, as they co-star in Hawn and Schumer’s upcoming film, Mother/Daughter. Then, the backlash began on Twitter. Some tweets came with a hashtag (#AmySchumerGottaGoParty), others did not. They called out Schumer’s parody for cultural appropriation, noting that “Formation” is a song that deals with police brutality and racial politics.
Amy went on to respond to the matter with a post on Instagram (above).
