When it comes to Beyoncé’s fan base, the Beyhive, they’re pretty much on top of anything and anyone who dares to criticize the queen of pop music. Earlier today, a series of allegedly unretouched photos of Bey’s 2013 Feria and Infallible L’Oréal campaign made the rounds on the Internet and it’s safe to say, the Beyhive went into full swarm mode.
“The #Beyhive stands ready to drag anyone who talk s— about Beyoncé’s skin.” said one fan. “Beyoncé has top-notch brands making custom dresses for her. Begging her to wear them. U think she cares about U dissing her untouched films?” added another.
According to reports, a website named Beyoncé World posted more than 200 of these allegedly unretouched photos. After a brutal blowback, however, the images were quickly deleted and replaced with the message below:
“Due to the disdain of the BeyHive, we have removed the photos. We don’t want to cause any drama, nor do we wish to start fan wars. Some of the things we have seen posted were just horrible, and we don’t want any parts of it. We were just posting the photos to share the fact that our queen is naturally beautiful, at the same time she is just a regular woman.”
Unfortunately, the disgust over the unedited images didn’t stop there. Check out how social media reacted to the latest Beyoncé drama below.
