In a hotly contested Senate race in Texas, Democrat Beto O’Rourke came up short against Republican Candidate and ex-Presidential hopeful, Ted Cruz on Tuesday.
On election day Texas’ most famous daughter, Beyonce Giselle Knowles-Carter, posted messages on Instagram to not only vote but to support Beto when heading to polls. After O’Rourke came up short, supporters blamed Beyonce for not posting sooner according to Page Six.
“You have such a huge, influential voice and you wait until Election Day to post this?!” one flummoxed fan wrote. “Beto needed you sooner. Maybe you could’ve actually made a difference.”
“Lol these posts a week ago could have made the difference in young voters,” someone else noted.
Another commented, “You came out literally two hours before elections were over. Why didn’t you use your influence months ago.”
Well, that’s one way to look at it. To see Beyonce’s support posts, plus social media reactions, flip the pages.
