O'Reilly: Beyonce Harming Children, Contributing To Teen Pregnancy
By Steven Gaither, Web Producer/Digital Journalist - email
Just weeks after earning recognition as one of the most influential people on the planet, Beyonce is coming under fire for that influence. Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly accused the artist of harming children and contributing to teen pregnancy on his show last week.
O’Reilly called Beyonce "part of the problem." His remarks came days after Knowles-Carter covered Time Magazine’s "Most Influential People" issue.
“She knows — this woman knows — that young girls are getting pregnant in the African-American community. Now it’s about 70 percent out of wedlock. She knows and doesn’t seem to care,” O’Reilly said.
For the record, Beyonce is married to rapper Jay-Z. She had her first child, Blue Ivy, at 30.
