Mike Huckabee: Beyonce is a Hooker and Jay Z is Her Pimp!

by at .

This should go over well.

Former Arkansas governor and likely 2016 presidential candidate Mike Huckabee previewed his new memoir this week, and one passage in particular has raised cries of WTF?! from all corners of the Internet.

Discussing his views on Jay Z and Beyonce for some reason, Huckabee says that the hip hop power couple's stage show makes him feel as though Jay is Bey's pimp. That would mean that Mrs. Carter is...yeah, he went there:

"Jay Z is a very shrewd businessman," Huckabee writes. "But I wonder: does it occur to him that he is arguably crossing the line from husband to pimp by exploiting his wife as a sex object?"

Look, anyone who's seen Beyonce's "7/11" video knows that the woman does, indeed, flaunt her sexuality. But that's because she's a grown up and she's allowed to, not because the Jigga Man is ice cold, baby.

In fact, Beyonce self-identifies as a feminist, and has served as a role model for millions of girls and young women. She was successful long before she married Jay Z and she continues to cultivate one of the enviable careers in the history of pop music.

So, yes, Huckabee's comment is patently misogynistic and has a slight tinge of racism in it. (An old white man calling a younger black man a pimp is problematic for days.) 

But will he apologize? Nah, probably not. We're guessing he figures the average Bey fan wasn't gonna vote for him anyway.

Besides, he'll have a lot more explaining to do once the book is actually released. Apparently, he has a chapter titled, "Bend Over and Take It Like a Prisoner."

Yup - rape jokes in 2015. This dude might be too in touch with voters, if there is such a thing.
