At this point, in February of 2016, so many people, places, and things have already had their lives #blessed by Beyoncé. Like the Black Lives Matter protestors whose bail she posted, for example, and victims of Hurricane Katrina, and basically all human beings who possess eyeballs and ears. She's just that great.
And now, thanks to her insanely powerful and undeniably woke new song "Formation," Bey's blessings have reached an unexpected source: a major, corporate chain of restaurants. Specifically Red Lobster, who are referenced as a good place to take your man after sexy times midway through the song. CNN reports that the chain's sales were up a whopping 33% on Sunday (the day after "Formation" dropped), and that it was mentioned on Twitter 42,000 times in a single hour.
This is undeniably great news for the 'ol Lobster, who also received a fair amount of Twitter backlash for posting a pretty cheesy (in more ways than one) pun several hours after "Formation" initially trended.
… Yeah. Beyonce? Very woke. Red Lobster’s weekend social media team? Maybe not so much. (Though, to be fair, they did backtrack after seeing the response to their initial tweet.)
At the end of the day, the TL;DR here is that Queen Bey and Red Lobster both had extremely successful weekends, while the digestive tracts of the poor souls eating Cheddar Bay Biscuits and Crab Linguini Alfredo did not.
