FACT CHECK: No, Beyoncé Is Not Facing $10 Billion Loss After Performing National Anthem For NFL

Anna Mock | Fact Check Reporter

A post shared on Facebook claims Beyoncé has lost $10 billion following her “Black National Anthem” performing for the NFL.   

Verdict: False

There is no evidence for the claim. It was originally posted by a satirical website.

Fact Check:

Beyoncé’s new song “Texas Hold ‘Em” debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard’s Hot Country Songs, making her the first woman to top both the Hot Country and Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs charts, according to CNN. It also makes her the first Black woman to have a No. 1 country song, NBC News reported.

The Facebook post purports Beyoncé is losing $10 billion after performing for the NFL. The post shares a photo of the singer performing in a hot pink top.

The post reads, “Beyoncé Faces Nearly $10 Billion Loss Following ‘Black National Anthem’ Performance at NFL. Read full story in comment.”

The claim is baseless. There are no credible news reports to corroborate the claim. (RELATED: Was Beyonce Banned From NFL Games For Life?)

As mentioned in the caption, the comment below the post links to an article from Laptops Villa, which does not provide any sources for the claim. Despite containing the article, the site seems to mostly center around laptops and other technology.

The same article appears on SpaceXMania, where it is labeled as satire. The site has a “Disclaimer” page that reads, “Please note that the article under the category ‘SATIRE’ are satirical in nature and are not meant to be taken seriously. These articles are meant to be humorous and are often entirely made up. We make no claim that the information presented in these articles is true or accurate.”

Check Your Fact has contacted a spokesperson for Laptops Villa and will update this piece accordingly if a comment is received.
