A pastor has spoken out against Beyoncé, branding her a ‘witch’ and claiming that her fans are members of a ‘coven’.
You can see what she said in the video below:
Tiphani Montgomery, who refers to herself as a ‘prophetess’ and is founder of the Covered By God ministry, posted the video on her social media accounts earlier this month, attacking anyone who goes to Beyoncé’s concerts and questioning how they can be a Christian.
She also had a pop at B’s husband Jay-Z, which you can see in the video above.
She said: “Any of you who are going to Beyoncé’s concert I rebuke you in the name of Jesus, how dare you call yourself a Christian.
“I don’t care what pastor you got who’s OK with it, I don’t care what pastor you got that think it’s cool, I don’t care what pastor you got that sing along to the songs because they want some clout.”
The pastor, who is based in North Carolina but travels across the entire United States, also then suggested that Beyoncé is a ‘witch’.
Her bizarre rant continued: “When a witch has a coven it’s normally a small thing. Witch’s covens are normally three to seven people,
“When it becomes thousands it’s called a hive. Y’all a part of that lady Beyhive? And you call yourself a Christian?
“May the dealings of the Lord come upon you.”
Since sharing her thoughts on TikTok and YouTube, many of Beyoncé’s fans – who are also Christian – have been defending themselves against the pastor’s attack.
One wrote: “As a Christian I’m not sure why judging others is such a thing smh (not everyone does it but….)
“We can guide others without being judgmental and commanding towards controlling people. Last time I check only God can judge.
“I wish we would simply guide and remind people of the love of God rather than bringing others down and speaking negative on people to remind them of God.”
The strange speech even reached the ears of Beyoncé’s friend and former Destiny’s Child co-star Michelle Williams, who responded: “It also looks like I am entering the chat.
“I am just watching a lot going on, things that are being said, specifically about entertainers, specifically about entertainers that I even have relationships with, entertainers that I know off the stage,
“I just wish we would pray as publicly for entertainers as we rebuke them and damn their soul to hell.
“I know it ain’t my calling mission to damn entertainers to hell and to say that they would drop dead. The devil is a lie.”
However, it has also been revealed that Tiphani herself used to love Beyonce, with some online sleuths digging up old tweets such as one in which she said: “Am I the only one addicted to Beyonce’s song: Why don’t u love me??? #nowplaying It again smh.”
She also wrote: “Whoa…this new Beyonce song is FIYAH!”
Another said: “Ummmm, I LOVE Beyonce.”
Referencing those tweets on February 13, Tiphani said: “I publicly came against and denounced their god baalyonce [sic] so they found these tweets from 2010, 2011, 2014.
“But I had just did a YouTube the night before saying I was the BIGGEST jay z and baalyonce [sic] fan… until I got saved in my shower in August 2015.’
“What’s my point? My point is anytime you’re a mouth piece for God they will try to discredit you. But I’m more afraid of The Living God than I am dead skeletons!”
