Beyonce Poses in Front of Jesus in Last Supper Mural Instagram Pic

While Beyonce may be the Queen B, she’s been getting in to some hot water over some questionable artistic choices as of late.

First, there was her decision to use a sample of audio of NASA public affairs officer Steve Nesbitt can be heard in the moments after Challenger exploded 73 seconds after liftoff from the Kennedy Space Center on January 28, 1986, and now has posted a photo of herself on her Instagram, posing in front of one of the most famous paintings of all time – Leonardo Da Vinci‘s The Last Supper.

The real kicker though is that she decided to pose in the middle of the picture and in front of Jesus.

The photo may have surprised some fans. Beyonce has often talked about her Christian upbringing in Houston and her childhood church, St. John’s United Methodist Church in downtown.

Needless to say, the Instagram photo is drawing plenty of criticism from fans and critics online. According to the Huffington Post, Beyonce was posing on the counter of a Miami juice bar. It features an Andy Warhol mural of The Last Supper with camouflage.

Her fans were quick to take note, with one saying, “@beyonce You are so disrespectful!!! I will be praying for U!!! U ARE NOT JESUS!!!!! Smh [shaking my head]Jesus is the truth, and the light…John 14:6 [sic].”

“I’m agnostic but respect religion and those who have faith. I can see why posing in front of a replica of The Last Supper, using her image to block out Jesus, could offend. No matter whether she is or isn’t religious herself, this controversial move is disrespectful to many…” another commenter wrote.
