You may have heard through the grapevine this week that iconic singer and performer Beyonce, is creating the Saartjie Bartman story and starring in the film. Saartjie Baartman was a slave who was exploited because of her curvy features in the 1800s. Well her rep came in to clear the air to Billboard that is it’s not true!
” Beyonce is in no way tied to this project. This is an important story that should be told, however”
Everyone can now stop with the essays and tweets claiming why Beyonce should have no part in creating the story. Hopefully this statement will settle the outrage.
