Beyoncé criticized for using Challenger disaster audio clip in pop song

Fox News: Some of those closest to the 1986 Challenger disaster are speaking out against Beyoncé, after the songstress included an audio clip from the time of the shuttle’s explosion in her new pop song “XO.”
On Jan. 28, 1986, the space shuttle Challenger exploded almost immediately after liftoff, killing seven crew members.
In a six-second audio clip at the start of the song, NASA’s public affairs officer at the time, Steve Nesbitt, is heard saying, “Flight controllers here looking very carefully at the situation. Obviously a major malfunction.”
And those who vividly remember the horrifying disaster were quick to take notice. The widow of Challenger Commander Dick Scobee, June Scobee Rodgers, issued a statement about the use of the audio on behalf of the Challenger Center for Space Science Education, an organization formed by the families of the astronauts in the their memory.
We were disappointed to learn that an audio clip from the day we lost our heroic Challenger crew was used in the song ‘XO’. The moment included in this song is an emotionally difficult one for the Challenger families, colleagues and friends. We have always chosen to focus not on how our loved ones were lost, but rather on how they lived and how their legacy lives on today,” she said in a statement posted on NASAWatch.com.
Keith Cowing, a former NASA employee, who runs NASAWatch.com echoed similar sentiments and called for Beyoncé to apologize to the families.
These words were uttered as the crew and their disintegrating vehicle were still falling into the sea. These words are forever etched into the psyche of everyone who was watching that day and still echo across the years for the generation that followed… This choice of historic and solemn audio is inappropriate in the extreme.”
The pop star responded by issuing a statement about the song, according to News.com.au.
“My heart goes out to the families of those lost in the Challenger disaster. The song ‘XO’ was recorded with the sincerest intention to help heal those who have lost loved ones and to remind us that unexpected things happen, so love and appreciate every minute that you have with those who mean the most to you.
“The songwriters included the audio in tribute to the unselfish work of the Challenger crew with hope that they will never be forgotten.”
???????????????????????????
 
The song is about a girl in a relationship and includes lyrics like “I love you like XO, you love me like XO, you kill me boy XO.”
The Challenger Center for Space Science Education could not be reached for further comment.

Reblogged this on Your Dog Wouldn't Like It and commented:
Beyoncé is a devil possessed Illuminati lover. Leave her work well alone.

If this is her face, and I’m sure it is although I’ve never seen her or heard her, I’m sure she’s already long gone to Hell.

Joseph,
Beyonce is the wife of rapper and satanist Jay Z. That pic is one of many taken at her Superbowl halftime show, all showing her true demonic face. See the scary photos of her at Buzzfeed: https://www.buzzfeed.com/lyapalater/the-fiercest-moments-from-beyonces-halftime-show
Her publicist actually had the nerve to ask Buzzfeed take down those pics. She now forbids the media to take or publish any photos of her without her prior screening and approval — just like her pal, the POS in the White House. He also has started censoring the media’s pics of him.

Does any one know if other famous [?] people insisted that only pre-approved photos could be released? I’m thinking about luminaries [sarcasm, ok?] such as Hitler, Mussolini, movie stars, you catch my drift. It seems to be the pinnacle of egotism to me, especially as defined by Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Egotism.

That’s what all modern dictators do, via state monopoly over the media and everything. In the former Soviet Union and Maoist China, whoever held absolute power even had their factional rivals airbrushed from official group photos. Nowadays we have photoshop, which should make this even easier. {Snark}

Good post, DCG. Notice how she never really apologizes in her statement. Where’s the Duck Dynasty uproar from the media?
There is no doubt that this girl is a satanist and a pawn of the illuminati. The only question is did she make the choice with her own free will, or did her parents offer her as an infant to satanic ritual abuse and MKUltra mind control?

Raise your hand if you think she and her handlers are just plain ignorant of U.S. History. Now, how about you all who believe she & they are just plain ignorant?

She looks possessed…I believe she is. Tina Turner, at the ripe old age of 74 has a better body, singing skills and stage performance than Beyonsay will ever have….AND she didn’t have to sell her soul to get have any of it.
