Ronda Rousey reacts to Beyoncé using her 'Do Nothing B****' speech
When Ronda Rousey heard that her “Do Nothing B****” speech was used by none other than Beyoncé, she got a little excited.
Entertainment Tonight reports that during Beyoncé’s Made in America performance, the “Do Nothing B****” speech was played all the way through just before Bey’s performance of “Diva.” Video of the moment was posted online by UFC president Dana White, and Rousey was in awe.
“To be honest, it’s a honor to have a real powerhouse of a woman like Beyoncé just recognize my existence,” the UFC champion said. “It’s surreal how something I thought was a pre-fight rant in my hotel room that would end up scrapped on some editor’s floor has taken off to the point a cultural icon like Beyoncé is playing it between songs at her concert. Such a huge compliment, I couldn’t be more grateful.”

The speech in question was a response to people who claimed that the UFC fighter had too “masculine” a body.
“Just because my body was developed for a purpose other than f***ing millionaires, doesn’t mean it’s masculine,” she said in the viral rant. “I think it’s femininely badass as f***, because there’s not a single muscle on my body that isn’t for a purpose, because I’m not a ‘do nothing b****.'”
