Red Lobster owes Beyonce some shares.
Beyonce and Jay Z accepted the prestigious Vanguard Award at the 2019 GLAAD Media Awards ceremony in Beverly Hills, California last night. “When Beyoncé and Jay-Z speak, the world becomes inspired and when it comes to LGBTQ people, their voices of acceptance have been heard loud and clear," GLAAD President and CEO Sarah Kate Ellis said of the couple.
The Carter's both stood at the podium to share their acceptance speech for the award where Beyonce once again shouted out Red Lobster, as she did in her Lemonade track "Formation."
"LGBTQI rights are human rights. To choose who you love is your human right. How you identify and see yourself is your human right. Who you make love to and take that ass to Red Lobster...." she said, which brought on quite a loud applause. Red Lobster clearly got word of the shout out and shared an image to the company's Instagram Story showing a heart emoji and lobster emoji and how it equals love.
“We’re here to promote love for every human being,” Beyoncé said during her speech. “And change starts with supporting the people closest to you. So let’s tell them they are loved. Let’s remind them that they are beautiful, let’s speak out and protect them. And parents, let’s love our kids in their truest form. … I’d like to request that we continue to shift the stigmas in this community, especially the stigmas in black families towards queer black and brown men and women.”
