Lil Nas X performed with Billy Ray Cyrus their number one hit for a worldwide audience at The BET Awards. Comedian Gary Owen said that country fans did not accept Beyoncé when he appeared on the Country Music Award stage in 2016.
Owen has shared a video about comparing the performances with a statement. He said:
“Isn’t it crazy?. I’m telling you, man. Don’t listen to the media when they try to describe what black people are like. ‘Cause black people just like to have a good time. Enjoy they self. Nothing like a good song and a good party. Hey, if you’re ready to have a good time, come on in and hang out with black people. They’ll invite you in. Try it. I tried it early. I’m still here. I’m still partying.”
He captioned the video with the following title:
“Did you see the @BET awards? I think Billy Ray Cyrus had a better time then anybody. Isn’t it funny how a few years ago Beyoncé performed at the CMA & a bunch of country music fans lashed out. Just something I noticed.”
