JAY-Z’s latest music video for “Family Feud” is receiving some heat from  the Catholic community.

On Jan. 2, the Catholic League released a statement from its president Bill Donohue, condemning Hov's latest visuals. "A video trailer is supposed to be a teaser, but in this case it falls flat, leading nowhere," Donohue writes.

In his statement, Donohue details scenes from the video, describing Beyonce as a priestess who hears JAY-Z's confession. "Apparently a statement on his real-life infidelities," he continues.

The president of the Catholic League goes on to say that while the video isn't anti-Catholic, it is a "bigoted assault," which "pales next to Jay-Z's relentlessly racist (and anti-black) lyrics." He adds, "But it is nonetheless gratuitous as well as exploitative, just the kind of thing we would expect from this genius couple."

Although the Catholic League is not officially connected to the Catholic church, it states its mission is to defend the right of the Catholic church when "slanderous assaults" are made against it.
