Young, 46, became a trending Twitter topic this week after audio from a conversation on the invitation-only social networking app Clubhouse was made public. On Clubhouse, users can listen in to conversations, interviews, and discussions between users discussing various topics — like tuning in to a live podcast.
In the audio clip, Young can be heard saying, "Beyoncé fuck with her because she see money.... Beyoncé ain't trying to give back to music or nothin'. Beyoncé don't write music and barely can sing her motherfuckin' self. Beyoncé can't sang!"
Beyoncé fans, known collectively as the Beyhive, swiftly retaliated — by posting negative reviews of Trick Daddy's popular Miami Gardens restaurant, Sunday's Eatery.

Uproxx reported that a slew of one-star reviews suddenly showed up on the restaurant's Google listing — each accompanied by a "bee" emoji. The stinging reviews managed to briefly drop the restaurant's Google rating to 2.6 on Tuesday. (The rating has since risen to 4.5, and most of the comments have been removed.)
Yelp account — which contains a large number of five-star reviews — also received a slew of out-of-state one-star marks, all dated June 22. The reviews have not been deleted, but the restaurant's account has been flagged for media-related activity. (New Times tried calling Sunday's Eatery but its voice mailbox was full.)
Miami food blogger Starex Smith posted a message of solidarity on his Hungry Black Man Instagram page, saying, "Trick is being attacked because he said Beyoncé can’t sing. This man hires Black people and has a Black woman as a partner. They are who I think about when seeing how the ratings can impact tourism. Not ok. They don’t deserve this."
What's ironic here is that many Miami residents probably didn't even know Trick Daddy owns and operates a South Florida establishment until the Beyhive decided to go after him. Sunday's Eatery is a popular and well-regarded spot where diners can, as Trick puts it, "get a Sunday meal any day of the week" — and even "Take it 2 Da House" via several home-delivery options.
The menu reads like a compendium of family meal favorites, from deep-fried snapper, catfish, ribs, shrimp, pork chops, chicken wings, and Cornish hen. Several items can also be prepared baked, including turkey, chicken, and fish. Sides include standard barbecue-inspired fixings like mac-and-cheese, collard greens, candied yams, peas and rice, and string beans.
