Beyonce has been labeled as "anti-feminist" and a "terrorist" on young girls by scholar bell hooks during a recent New School panel discussion about "liberating the black female body".

Fellow panelist Janet Mock said that the author took issues with certain things about the singer's image for example, the lyrics to 'Drunk in Love'.

But, she said that the author has also praised the entertainer for owning her body and claiming that space, US Magazine reported.

hooks whose real name is Gloria Jean Watkins said that she actually felt like the major assault on feminism in their society had come from visual media and from television and videos.

Whilst talking about the 'Baby Boy' singer's recent Time magazine cover, the 61-year-old social activist asserted that the singer probably had very little control over that image.

The feminist said that no one would be really interested in the 32-year-old actress if she would not have been so rich because one could not separate Beyonce's class, power, and the wealth from people's fascination with her, that there was a young black woman who was so incredibly wealthy.
