It’s hard out here if you remotely piss off the collective worshipping group (otherwise) known as the Beyhive or the Beygency. These die-hard Beyoncé fans have handed out “take several seats” tickets to any and every celebrity that has dared to question the crown of Blue Ivy‘s muva.
As Rita Ora became the latest victim of the Beyhive sting (aka bee or honey jar emojis all over your social media pages), here are eight other celebs that should’ve had the bug disinfectant spray on standby! For the rest of you C-listers, D-listers and up and comers, don’t say we didn’t warn you…!
After refusing to acknowledge a magazine cover with Beyoncé and Jay Z on it, live on the red carpet, Hilson secured a spot on the Beygency’s version of a FBI Top 10 list.
Back in 2013, after seemingly having a rough day of some sort, Hilson vented on Twitter. For Beyoncé fans not liking her very much, they sure were reading! And somehow, they interpreted her tweets as a diss towards their fave. Hilson then popped off!
In 2015, they’re still letting Hilson know not to get her hands caught in the honey jar!
Poor Karry. Homegirl didn’t stand a chance after her infamous blurb about Blue Ivy‘s hair during a live taping of BET’s 106 & Park. At the start of reviewing the MTV VMAs, that had aired the night before, someone at BET thought it might’ve been cute to hear Tran say this about Blue’s adorable afro (she was in the audience watching her mom perform): “I really did wake up like this…because my parents never comb my hair!”
Not only did the Beyhive sent Tran death threats and disses on Twitter and Instagram, think pieces appeared across the blogs in defense of Blue’s natural coils. Days after the controversy, Chris Brown‘s then-girlfriend wrote a lengthy apology on her IG and nearly asked for millions to not revoke her Bey stan card. The show 106 & Park was then abruptly suspended and soon cancelled all together. Damn.
Since 2013, the internet’s been convinced that Beyoncé has tried to keep her interaction with Kim few and far between. While Queen Bey has thrown Kardashian a Tom Ford heel or two and pose with the reality TV star at events and parties, the Beygency felt Kim pushed it this one time. Last year, on Instagram, she chose to quote lyrics from “Drunk In Love.” But she wasn’t ready (for the backlash)!
When Amber Rose compared a coupledom photo of her and Wiz Khalifa to a similar pose Bey and Jay did, the Beyhive felt they had to *Jay Z rapping voice* “send [her] a reminder…”
Here’s the incriminating photo that got the Beyhive going!
When Beyoncé released her unusually brashy single “Bow Down/I Been On” that featured the lines “Bow down bitches” preceded by “I know when you were little girls. You dreamt of being in my world. Don’t forget it, don’t forget it. Respect that, bow down bitches”, fans were pumped! She was finally embracing her Queen Bey status. But others felt it was disrespectful and unsisterly towards her peers. Keyshia Cole was the first to vocalize her opinion.
Naturally, the Beyhive got to stinging but Cole mainly stuck to her point that R&B singers should stick together. She’s gone on to say that she likes Beyonce and that she just felt the track “wasn’t her thing” to be so polarizing.
