They may seem perfect, but even Jay Z and Beyoncé feel the heat of the internet…

After this pic of the Tidal staff at their Norway offices was posted on Beyonce’s website, the rapper got a ton of heat from the black community. Why? Because Jay and Bey are clearly the only black people in the crew.

Sure, Norway has something like a 2 percent black population, but that’s not really the issue. Jay criticized the black community recently for not getting behind his new project…so seeing him with a pic of happy, white Norwegians at the Tidal HQ seems pretty hypocritical!

After the pic was published, the commenters came out, saying things like:

– “Jay tried to guilt trip us … but his staff are all white”
– “Jay does a ‘Pro-Black’ freestyle but then releases a picture of #Tidal’s all White staff.”
– “Those who complain of no blacks in white owned institutions. Well here u go Jay Z OWNS TIDAL. U going to protest?”
-“Jay ain’t hiring u n***as”

Should Jay make an apology? Or should everyone who gave him heat get lots of free Tidal stuff? I vote both.
