In case you’ve been living under a rock, a video was released on May 12 of Solange Knowles attacking Jay Z in an elevator at the Met Ball on May 5, while Beyonce stood placidly by. Now, we’ve officially hit the part of the news cycle where comedians like Chelsea Handler are cracking wise.
The internet basically exploded on May 12 after video was released of Solange Knowles going H.A.M. on Jay Z and punching and kicking at him in an elevator at the Met Ball on May 5 while Beyonce stood by and showed zero reaction whatsoever. It’s unclear what triggered the fight, but comedians like Chelsea Handler have their own theories — and jokes — about what transpired between Solange and Hov!
Chelsea Handler & More Comedians Crack Jokes About Solange’s Elevator Attack On Jay Z
“If we’re speculating, it looks like [Beyonce] was pissed at [Jay Z], too,” Chelsea said on the May 12 episode of Chelsea Lately. However, she noted that the video was “probably” taken in the wee hours of the morning and that “they were probably all pretty wasted.”
Chelsea Lately writer Chris Franjola piped in to comment that the “Real Housewives of Atlanta called her right away. Like, ‘Solange, we need you on this show — now!'” We’re not going to lie — that would basically be the best case scenario.
“Why didn’t Beyonce do anything during the fight? She just stood there,” Chris said. “Now [Solange] knows what it’s like to be in Destiny’s Child — someone else does all the work while [Beyonce] does s***.” Oooh, shots fired — we know that he didn’t just say that Beyonce didn’t contribute to DC!

So, HollywoodLifers, what are the best jokes you’ve been seeing online about this whole fiasco? And remember: violence is never the answer, and it’s great that Jay came away unscathed — those heels Solange was wearing were intense!
