Controversial activist and famed feminist theorist bell hooks has caused a stir online after publishing an essay in which she strongly criticises the megastar for feeding hypercapitalism in the guise of a feminist production.
Hooks, who has called the singer a cultural 'terrorist' in the past, condemns Beyoncé for using the concept of black female bodies as commodities to market a kind of fantasy feminism.
Beyoncé is the embodiment of a fantastical female power, which is just that—pure fantasy.— bell hooks, author and social ativist
Simply showcasing beautiful black bodies does not create a just culture of optimal well being where black females can become fully self-actualized and be truly respected.— bell hooks, author and social ativist
While hooks says that Beyoncé's construction of feminism cannot be trusted, Twitter users from across the world beg to differ, and have slammed the renowned author instead.Tweeps 'fetch' bell hooks
