According to Turner, she did not say that slur (listen to it again and you can figure out what it might have been), but what she did say was “motherfuckers.” I have watched this video like three times in order to figure out for myself if it sounds like it. It...doesn’t really? She just really drew out the second part of the word and mumbled the first part and also she has a British accent but was maybe trying to adopt some sort of other accent for reasons unbeknownst. Here’s her response to The Cut regarding this video:

“I used the word ‘motherf*ckers’ in a recent video posted in an Instagram story and not a hateful racial slur that has been suggested,” she said. “I am incredibly upset that anyone would think otherwise, and I want to make it clear that I would never use such an abhorrent word.”


Okay . She did not use a racial slur. She just needs to enunciate. Also, she’s dating Joe Jonas. Maybe let’s focus on that.

Just a reminder that Beyoncé is still pregnant with The Twins and manages to look better than anyone does on a day that they actually try.
