The Carters really like using Mitt Romney as a replacement for the word “b-tch.” In the last few days both Beyoncé and Jay-Z used the same word swap tool, but it looks like the singer is more worried about being offensive, than her better half.
Lady Bey has been swept up in all things political as of late, and couldn’t hide her undying love for President Obama on Election Day. The 30-year-old joined Instagram (she also tweeted once, in case you’re keeping count), penned a letter to Obama, and posted a hand-written “Take That Mitches” note on her website, after he lost the election.
Before the conservative public could sharpen their claws, Mrs. Carter removed the photo, taking a different approach than Hov. The rap mogul was littered with Republican attacks for changing the lyrics of his “99 Problems,” track by putting “Mitt” in place of “b-tch.” Rather than release a public apology, or explain why he added the song to his Obama rally playlist, Jay responded to the outcry by doing what he does best: ignoring any and all examples of GOP struggle.
Since his wife is the bigger star (face facts people), she may have had more to lose and didn’t want to step too far across that very thin line between public love, and partisan hate.
View her words for Romney, and a couple other gratuitous flicks from “The Gram,” below.
