Hell Hath No Fury: Jay-Z’s “Family Feud” dragged by Catholic organization

On Jay-Z’s “Family Feud” visuals, survey says: the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights is PISSED TF OFF!

HOV is kicking off 2018 with a major critique via a religious collective who found images and themes portrayed in his latest music video “exploitative.”

On Jan. 2, president of the Catholic League, Bill Donohue, released a statement condemning the 48-year-old Brooklyn bred emcee’s project—directed by famed cinema creative, Ava DuVernay, and slayed with the Catholic Church as its main backdrop—saying, “A video trailer is supposed to be a teaser, but in this case it falls flat, leading nowhere.”

Per his memo, Bill details scenes of the video, describing Beyonce as a priestess who receives HOV’s confession.

He makes the presumption the 4:44 rapper is making, “a statement on his real-life infidelities.”

In noting that the “Family Feud” video is neither an anti-Catholic attack, nor a “bigoted assault,” the Catholic League’s leader says the artistic piece, “pales next to Jay-Z’s relentlessly racist (and anti-black) lyrics.”

He adds, “But [the video] is nonetheless gratuitous as well as exploitative, just the kind of thing we would expect from this genius couple.”

It’s important to note: the Catholic League is not officially connected to the Catholic church, but rather works to defend the rights of the church when “slanderous assaults” are made against it.

So far, Jay had not openly responded to the group’s shade.
