And Twitter suspects there's racism afoot.

Beyoncé is not only the Queen Bee but is also apparently the queen of political divisiveness.

According to The Hill, a new Morning Consult poll found the Everything Is Love singer to be "the most politically divisive celebrity" in the United States. The pollsters found Bey has a 63 percent favorable rating among Democrats and a negative 3 percent favorable rating among Republicans, a 66-point gap. The poll's margin of error is 2 percentage points. 

Rush Limbaugh, Ellen DeGeneres, LeBron James, Katy Perry and Rihanna also nabbed top spots on the list.

The numbers left many wondering how a singer who rarely speaks directly about politics outranked partisan talking heads like Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity. Twitter had an answer for that query: the fact that Beyoncé is unapologetically Black, and white folks are salty.
