Beyoncé Named America's 'Most Politically Divisive Celebrity'

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.
