It is one factor (and maybe nonetheless an excessive amount of of a factor) when the group gangs up on an artist for seemingly copying creative choices made by their hero.
It is fairly one other factor when the group points loss of life threats to an harmless girl whose solely crime was to… supply Beyonce a beverage.
That is what occurred on Wednesday evening.
Beyonce and Jay-Z sat courtside for Sport Three of he NBA Finals in Oakland. At one level, cameras caught Nicole Curran, the spouse of the Golden State Warriors majority proprietor, leaning over and speaking to the rapper.
These cameras additionally caught Beyonce seemingly side-eyeing Curran for, some viewers presumed, daring to talk to her husband.
There was even a rumor that Beyonce shoved Curran.
For a short time, social media customers had enjoyable with this alternate, tossing out memes and jokes about Beyonce performing all protecting of her husband.
However the jokes shortly ended after Curran spoke to reporter Ramona Shelburne and relayed simply what she had been listening to from aforementioned member of the Beyhive.

So there you’ve got it.
Followers of Beyonce bullied and threatened a lady for having good manners, serving as a very good host and having the gall to say about six phrases to Jay-Z.
In response, the publicist for Beyonce has truly known as out these very passionate supporters.

Very properly stated, proper?
Easy. To the purpose. Accusatory, but additionally truthful and respectful.
Let’s actually hope the Beyhive listens and understands.
As a result of it might appear humorous at first to jot down one thing resembling this, as one Web consumer did two days in the past: “THE NERVE TO INVADE BEYONCE’S PERSONAL SPACE WHILE WEARING THOSE BOOTS.”
In actuality, although, it is nothing greater than ignorant cyberbullying.
And it has to cease.
