I seriously hope that Amy Poehler is entering witness protection rn, because Beyoncé’s crazed fans, AKA The Beyhive, is gunning for her, and who knows what they’re capable of. Poehler is producing a new show on Hulu called Difficult People, and on said show they did they unthinkable: took a jab at Blue Ivy. But it wasn’t just any jab…
“I can’t wait for Blue Ivy to be old enough for R. Kelly to piss on her,” says one of the characters (which I DEFINITELY do not find hilarious. Please don’t kill me. Praise Beyoncé). To be fair, that character is later torn apart on the internet for making the joke, just as Amy Poehler is being torn apart on the internet IRL.
I hope Beyoncé drags that talentless bitch to Hell and back

White Feminism™ strikes again, but of course Amy Poehler’s show will slide by with that R. Kelly/Blue Ivy rape joke because, white.

Why would Amy Poehler think it’s okay to joke about Blue Ivy if 106 &’ Park practically got canceled just for talking about her hair?

While it’s unclear whether or not Poehler wrote the joke, actress Julie Klausner (whose character made the joke in question) told EW that “Amy could not have been more hands-on.” So it’s (maybe) likely that the Tina Fey’s bestie approved the joke and hey, Beyhive gotta blame someone.
On another note, wouldn’t Amy Poehler going into witness protection from the Beyhive make for a great TV show?
