White Viewers Trash Solange’s SNL Performances, But Black Twitter Comes to Her Rescue

After Solange celebrated her Blackness during her performances on “Saturday Night Live” last weekend, white Twitter users trashed it.

The singer performed two songs from her widely acclaimed album, A Seat at The Table.

Donning a stunning white jumpsuit, Solange performed “Cranes in the Sky” and “Don’t Touch My Hair.” Both tracks provide commentary on being Black with the latter commanding pride in wearing natural hair. Solange sparkled in a braided halo and accompanying crystal-beaded outerwear over a white two piece for “Cranes.” Then, she proudly showed off her voluminous tresses for “Hair.”

But many white viewers did not enjoy the singer’s SNL debut.

As Solange performed “Don’t Touch My Hair” TJ Ross stated she should tell her sister Beyoncé “not to wear ours.”

But Chasity had an informative response, noting the hair used for sew-in weaves is not from white women.

Several other users also took on Ross’ critique.

BQ surmised that the user simply didn’t like the song because it is meant to uplift Black women with natural hair; it’s not meant for him.

Additionally, Will responded with this photo.

Meanwhile, Patrick Donohue tweeted that Solange “can’t sing to save her life” and deemed her performance “pure crap.”

Vinniecocoa called Solange’s live show “horrendous.”

To which Southern_Mouth responded with a GIF of an unbothered looking Solange.

And Natalie Schmatalie explained she didn’t understand Solange performing “with a spiderweb on her head and doing jazz hands.”

The onslaught of outrage should come as no surprise. Solange’s older sister Beyoncé faced racist backlash after performing at the Country Music Association Awards last week. Among other things, conservative white viewers deemed Bey a police hating anti-American. The backlash seemed to lead to the CMA removing all mentions of Beyoncé on their website and social media accounts. However, the organization denied the accusation.
