You absolutely do not have to like the fact that Beyoncé put out a country album recently.

Also, you do not have to like her music. At all.

Then why do so many Idahoans feel the need to spew vitriol toward Beyoncé on social media? You aren't going to believe the things they're saying...

To get straight to the point, this writer is extremely disappointed.

We recently posted an article about Beyoncé's new album Cowboy Carter, and to say the comments on social media were hateful would be an understatement.

These are just a few of the comments on a recent Beyoncé article:

  • "She doesn't even need to set foot in Idaho we don't want her!!!"
  • "Stay out, she's a joke and will never be cool enough for Idaho!"
  • "She's a joke. So glad all I have is Cds and very little internet!!!"

Those are kind of mean. But this next comment (which is 100% real) takes the cake:

  • "Just because she’s from Texas doesn’t make her “country”. Are there no cities there?
    Her voice is as ghetto as they come, It’s GRATING. And I certainly never heard of a country girl with a name like “Beyoncé “….She can sing whatever she wants, we don’t have to listen to it. The song is awful—-but it’s just a song. They can’t all be winners."

Hopefully, we don't need to explain why using the word ghetto here is wildly inappropriate and offensive, but that doesn't seem to bother some folks online.

Look, we can disagree on everything, and that's ok. But we do not need to stoop to school yard insults and racist rhetoric to have a conversation.

Here's to hoping we can all be a little more tender with our words moving forward.
