Solange Knowles, Jay Z Fight in Elevator After Met Gala: Celebrities React
Solange Knowles' shocking outburst is still making the rounds. Earlier this week, a video obtained by TMZ showed the singer-producer appearing to physically attack her brother-in-law Jay Z, with older sister Beyonce looking on. The incident—now seen 'round the world—happened in a cramped elevator at The Standard Hotel following the Met Gala in NYC on Monday, May 5.
The footage rocked social media, spawning memes and the hashtag #WhatJayZSaidtoSolange. The family trio have yet to talk about the situation, but fellow celebrities have weighed in via Twitter and late night. See how Olivia Wilde, Seth Meyers, Bette Midler, and more reacted:
Olivia Wilde: Since when is it ok to release elevator "security" surveillance footage to the public? Let's reject this trashy, and shady, TMZ deal. Gross.

Bette Midler: Beyonce's sister Solange got into a fight with Jay-Z in an elevator! Why should we care? Let's all go read a book.
