NASA is wagging their finger at Beyoncé.
The United States government agency released a statement tonight in response to the controversy surrounding the world-famous superstar for her use of an audio clip from the NASA Challenger explosion, which claimed seven American lives in 1986, in the opening of her song "XO."
"The Challenger accident is an important part of our history; a tragic reminder that space exploration is risky and should never be trivialized," said the statement from Lauren B. Worley, NASA's press secretary. "NASA works every day to honor the legacy of our fallen astronauts as we carry out our mission to reach for new heights and explore the universe."
