Beyoncé released a brand new album on Saturday, and an hour-long musical presentation to go with it. Have you heard of it? Lemonade? You might've seen a few tweets about it. Then, ineffectual British Andy Rooney impersonator Piers Morgan wrote a column this morning complaining that Lemonade suffers from Beyoncé's "political mission," despite its main topic being infidelity.
Arguably, Morgan was trolling for clicks, but Twitter had fun roasting him all day long nonetheless. These are the 21 funniest clapbacks to Piers Morgan's Beyoncé thinkpiece!
