The expose from TMZ showing Solange Knowles attacking her sister's husband Jay Z inside a hotel elevator after the 2014 MET Gala while Beyonce was watching has become an Internet sensation and people have aired their opinions and jokes on the matter. A number of Twitter statuses with the theme "Jay Z officially has 100 problems" has taken over the social media platform, according to The Concourse.
Although the incident was no laughing matter, people gravitated to the issue and have even made up several memes on the expense of Beyonce, Jay Z and Solange. The cause of the outbursts from Solange still remains a mystery since both sides have not given their response to the issue but there are already various speculations on the rift between the her and the hip hop star.
There are several memes that are circulating either dissing Solange for hitting, Jay Z on being hit or Beyonce for just watching the whole thing. Several of those jokes were even compiled by E! Online.
People are out speculating because even though there was a video footage of the attack, there was no audio and nobody but the three celebrities and the bodyguard knows what transpired on that elevator ride. Some of the memes include Kerry Washington in "Scandal," Keanu Reeves in "The Matrix," courtside pictures of Beyonce and Jay Z talking to Jake Gyllenhaal.
Another parody was the poster for the "On The Run" tour of Jay Z and Beyonce which is scheduled to kick off in June. It seems that this incident has taken the interest of the public as there is a sense of mystery, especially since there was no news of the trio harbouring bad blood between them prior to the attack caught on video.
Although the video was released by TMZ yesterday, May 12 but the couple were seen to be fine and back to their usual selves as they watch the game courtside and even chatting with LeBron James, reports from TMZ. Jay Z was not even fighting back as Solange repeatedly kicked, punched and even threw her purse at him.
