Diss: Jay Z and Beyonce Criticized For Vacationing In Cuba

What Was Said: Mauricio Claver-Carone, the executive director of Cuba Democracy Advocates, complained to TMZ that Beyonce and Jay Z didn't educate themselves on Cuba's human rights violations before going to Cuba to celebrate their fifth wedding anniversary. "There are women getting beaten on a daily basis, women who are being jailed for no reason...people are fighting for their freedom... It’s extremely insensitive."

When The Diss Came: April 6, 2013

Response: "Open Letter"

Date Of Response: April 11, 2013

Days Between: 5

Lyric: "Obama said 'Chill, you gonna get me impeached' / But you don't need this shit anyway, chill with me on the beach"

Fallout: I'm sure you can only imagine what this Jay lyric did to conservatives in Washington—thankfully, none of them actually had the heart attack they feigned when they heard it. Obama was able to respond light-heartedly two weeks later at the White House Correspondents' dinner after denying any prior knowledge of the power couple's trip, saying, "Some things are beyond my control. For example, this controversy about Jay Z going to Cuba. It's unbelievable. I've got 99 problems, and now Jay Z's one." He also came in to DJ Khaled's "All I Do Is Win," so that tells you the type of mood the president was in at the time.
