While wearing a dress from Beyonce’s new Ivy Park x Adidas line talk show host Wendy Williams criticized Beyonce and Jay-Z for sitting during the Super Bowl national anthem on Sunday (Feb. 2.).

During Monday’s episode of The Wendy Williams Show, Williams discussed Super Bowl LIV highlights during her “Hot Topics” segment and then shared her opinion while showing photos of Beyonce, Jay-Z, and Blue Ivy sitting down while Demi Lovato sang the national anthem.

“I don’t know about you, and our country may be in a bad way, but there’s no place I’d rather live than in America,” Williams said before noting Jay-Z’s partnership with the NFL.

“Jay, you might be an NFL owner [he’s a partner, not owner], but you don’t own all of the NFL,” she opined. “And Beyonce, I love my Ivy Park, [but] you understand that all eyes were on you, you should’ve stood up,” Williams continued then adding, “If you don’t like our country, then…”

“And let’s move on,” Williams concluded while folding her arms.
