Solange drags music critic Jon Caramanica after he tells her not to "bite the hand that feeds" her

Solange took to Twitter last night to discuss the music industry and its history of exploiting black artists. She recalled a comment New York Times music critic Jon Caramanica made about her, when she called out white indie music writers for their lack of knowledge of R&B back in 2013.

In response to Solange's comment about music writers not understanding the history and culture of R&B, Caramanica responded, saying that Solange shouldn't be biting the hand that was feeding her. Solange called out Jon Caramanica last night, tweeting "Don't you EVER tell a Black woman, not to "Bite the hand that feeds you" while speaking in reference to white people."




























Jon Caramanica has come under fire in the past for making no mention of the Prettiots' industry connections during a SXSW profile last year, as well as trashing Mariah Carey's Las Vegas show, which was rumored to be in retaliation for parting ways with her longtime publicist.
