Jessica Williams Gets It Right Defending Beyoncé’s Halftime Performance

The Daily Show correspondent Jessica Williams had some words of wisdom for people who thought Beyoncé’s performance during the Super Bowl halftime show was too much because of its themes of black empowerment. Toronto City Counsellor Jim Karygiannis, in an interview with The Toronto Sun, the former Member of Parliament thinks the Canadian government should investigate Beyoncé and her backup dancers for any ties to the Black Panther Party. “Perhaps Immigration Minister John McCallum should have her investigated first? If someone wore bullets and supported (a radical group) here, they would not be welcomed in the United States—that’s for sure,” Karygiannis told Sun columnist Joe Warmington. “She or some of them could be found not eligible to enter the country as others in the past have faced.”

The Canadian Border Services Agency can deny entry based on issues of security, human or international rights violations, criminality, organized criminality, health grounds, financial reasons, misrepresentation, non-compliance with the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act, and having an inadmissible family member.

This is going to get interesting.
