Beyoncé Fans Slam ‘W’ Magazine for Photoshopping Perfection
Mess with Queen Beyoncé, you get stung by the Beyhive.
W magazine learned this the hard way when the publication shared a picture of the music powerhouse, only to be slammed by the singer’s fans for using Photoshop to create a thigh gap for Bey. In celebration of Lemonade, the magazine posted a shot on their Instagram from Beyoncé’s 2011 shoot with Patrick Demarchelier, but was met with angry fans accusing them of altering perfection (A.K.A. Beyoncé ***flawless body).
The image shows Bey in a Nina Ricci bra and bottoms, while wearing a silk Gucci shrug, hat and tall boots.
“Why all the photoshop? She’s more curvy than that and everybody knows it..” one user wrote.
Another chimed in, “It’s impossible to have a booty and a thigh gap at the same time naturally. Not buying it.”
However, some were quick to argue that Beyoncé could’ve looked like this as the picture was taken five years ago. Between that time, the songstress gave birth to her daughter, Blue Ivy Carter.
For comparison, here’s a photo of Bey on the cover of Elle’s May 2016 issue. Draw your on conclusions.
