Twitter Tries to Answer the Question: Why Was Solange So Enraged?
In the hours after footage emerged of what appears to be Jay Z and Beyonce's sister fighting, Twitter users offered theories about what provoked the squabble.
In the hours after video emerged online of what appeared to be Jay Z and Beyonce's sister Solange Knowles fighting in an elevator at the Standard Hotel after leaving a Met Gala afterparty in New York, none of the stars commented on the footage.
But Twitter users still had fun coming up with their own explanations for the fight, hashtagging theories for the squabble with #WhatJayZSaidToSolange, which was one of the top Twitter trending topics in New York on Monday afternoon.
Potential fight-inducing comments ranged from slams about Solange's music career, which never has been as successful as that of older sister Beyonce, to criticisms of Solange's appearance.
Here are some of the funniest theories The Hollywood Reporter found online:
