Solange Knowles’ Twitter behavior is causing people to talk about Bill Murray for all the wrong reasons

Well, fans, we need to reconcile our feelings about the art with our feelings about the artist. This time it’s about actor Bill Murray – star of movies like ‘Ghostbusters’, ‘Groundhog Day’ and ‘Lost in Translation’ – because he’s been making headlines lately for all the wrong reasons.

There was talk behind the scenes about Murray’s questionable behavior on set. When Deadline reported in April 2022 that production on its current film, Aziz Ansari’s directorial debut, Being Mortal, was indefinitely suspended over allegations of Murray’s inappropriate behavior, Twitter reminded people of many allegations against Murray in his past. As one person tweeted, “We had to talk about the fact that Bill Murray has probably been a bad guy for years.” People mentioned his strained relationship with Charlie’s Angels co-star Lucy Liu, allegations of domestic violence from Murray’s ex – Mrs. Jennifer Butler. They also brought up his differential treatment of a producer and Richard Dreyfuss’ allegations about Murray’s abusive behavior in the 1991 film What About Bob.

As new details about the “Being Mortal” incident came to light and the $100,000 complaint was settled, according to The Guardian, others revealed more appalling behavior from the beloved comics actor. Geena Davis detailed an incident in her memoir — and a video of Murray stroking her arm during an interview went viral — and Seth Green opened up about an abusive experience with Murray when he was just 9 years old. Now the latest Twitter reveals that Murray allegedly had an incident with singer Solange Knowles.

Solange Knowles liked a tweet describing an incident between her and Bill Murray

Amid all the conversations on Twitter about Bill Murray’s troubling behavior, TV producer and writer Judnick Mayard added a story of his own — one he wasn’t directly involved in but had witnessed — about Solange Knowles. “[Y]our annual reminder of seeing Bill Murray stick both hands in Solange’s scalp after asking her three times whether her hair was a wig or not,” Mayard tweeted on Oct. 16. Knowles was the musical guest on an episode of “Saturday Night” in 2016. Live,” per Entertainment Tonight, during which she sang her song “Don’t Touch My Hair.” Benedict Cumberbatch hosted the episode and Murray made an appearance.

Mayard also tweeted a response via Twitter, clarifying that Knowles’ song is not about Murray as the song was written before the incident. But: “She had just finished performing that song on ‘SNL’ when he did it,” Mayard said. “[T]That is the boldness of being white.”

While Knowles hasn’t commented on the incident, she liked both tweets. Fans now take this as confirmation that the incident really happened. “The co-signature of Solange herself,” one fan tweeted, along with a screenshot of her likes. We’ll see if Knowles clarifies the incident in the foreseeable future. But for now, let’s celebrate her achievements — like her history-making turn as the first black woman to compose a production with the famed New York City Ballet, per Defender, in performances through October 2022 and May 2023. Congratulations Solange!
