NEW YORK, NEW YORK - OCTOBER 29: Earvin “Magic” Johnson, Chairman and CEO of Magic Johnson Enterprises speaks onstage during ONWARD19: The Future Of Search - Day 2 at Marriott Marquis Times Square on October 29, 2019 in New York City.

Over the weekend, Magic Johnson took to social media and shared his top three entertainers. The NBA icon tweeted who his favorite entertainers were after discussing Michael Jordan’s Last Dance, an ESPN 10 part documentary series chronicling Jordan and the 1997-98 Chicago Bulls.

“For me? Michael Jordan, Michael Jackson, and Beyonce are the three greatest entertainers of my lifetime; and you could probably throw Muhammad Ali in there,” Johnson tweeted.

Michael Jordan’s Last Dance was fantastic and I loved all two hours of it!! Young fans that never go to see Michael play now understand why he’s the [GOAT] of basketball,” Johnson tweeted before revealing who his top three entertainers of his lifetime were.

It seemed as if some fans were upset that Johnson mentioned Beyonce as one of his favorites. “You lost me when you said Beyonce,” one fan replied to Johnson.

Another fan replied to Johnson’s thread and wrote, “Men are upset because Beyonce, a woman, has been counted as one of the greatest. Men who don’t know her art. Men who have never experienced her brilliance. Men who have not attended nor watched a single concert of hers. But they are violently refusing. Because she is a woman.”
