Amy Schumer ‘Formation’ Parody Blasted as Racist, Tone Deaf (Video)

After a gushing initial response, Amy Schumer‘s recent parody of Beyonce’s “Formation” has been blasted by African Americans, feminists and social media users for its appropriation of black culture.

The clip was shot in Hawaii during the filming of Schumer’s new comedy, and features her costars Goldie Hawn, Joan Cusack and Wanda Sykes. The women gyrate to Beyonce’s controversial hit, that contains powerful identifying statements from the singer like, “My daddy Alabama / Mama Louisiana / You mix that negro with that Creole / Make a Texas Bama.”
