It’s hard out here if you remotely piss off the collective worshipping group (otherwise known as) the Beyhive or the Beygency. The “I am a Beyonce fan and hear me roar!” types have handed out memorable “take several seats” suggestions to any and every celebrity that have dared to question the crown of Blue Ivy’s muva Beyonce.
As Rita Ora became the latest victim of the online 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 Beyonce 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 Beyonce fans not liking her very much, they sure did some 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. 106 & Park was then mysteriously suspended and soon cancelled all together. Damn.
Since 2013, the internet’s been convinced that Beyonce 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 Beyonce 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.
Us kids from the ’99 and 2000 definitely jammed to Kid Rock’s “Bawitdaba” (admit it!), but what was up with his Beyonce rant! Earlier this year in an interview with Rolling Stone, Rock went on one, talking about how “Beyoncé, to me, doesn’t have a f–king ‘Purple Rain,’ but she’s the biggest thing on Earth. How can you be that big without at least one ‘Sweet Home Alabama’ or ‘Old Time Rock & Roll’? People are like, ‘Beyoncé’s hot. Got a nice f–king ass.’ I’m like, ‘Cool, I like skinny white chicks with big t-ts.’ Doesn’t really f–king do much for me.”
While he thought his careless words would go unnoticed (he’s more of the country rock lane these days) never fear, the Beygency was near! And they went to work! They posted bee emojis on his Instagram as far back as 30 weeks from the date of the RS interview!
It’s been four months since the backlash, and we’re still seeing buzzy friends on his IG!
We don’t why Khia is convinced that Beyonce is out to get her. But more than once the one-hit wonder rapper has gone online to claim that Bey copies her music and style. Major pause. Feel free to pause again.
Most recently, she tried it again on Facebook, stating that Bey’s now infamously glorious Met Gala 2015 dress by Givenchy was a borderline carbon copy of a past outfit of hers.
You know how the Beyhive responded!
After getting turnt up at a New York City concert that featured Lil’ Kim on the roster, Symone got a backstage pic with the iconic rapper! Excitedly, she captioned her IG pic with:
All of her “bee” references were regarding the original queen bee era in which Lil’ Kim ruled! But what do these post-2002 kids know? The new generation’s Beyhive swarmed Symone’s IG. They practically demanding she respect Beyonce as the Queen Bey. Symone had to school the children in a little hip-hop history (we’ll give her credit for this one).
When The Shade Room posted a candid shot from this year’s Met Gala, Ora was shown allegedly behaving flirtatiously with her Roc Nation boss and Bey’s husband Jay Z. Like clockwork, the Beyhive promptly posted bee and honey jar emojis on most of Ora’s recent Instagram postings.
In the pic, Jay Z is seen talking to Diddy. Based on how her arms are placed, she may had been hugging him from behind and definitely displayed a red-lipped, come hither grin on her face. GIRL!
The tabloids, since Ora’s rising celeb status, have tried to make rumors of an affair between Ora and Jay Z happen. But Ora has always showed respect to her boss and his wife. And based on Beyonce’s IG too, it’s nothing but Roc Nation love between Bey, Jay and Rita.
Looks like it’s just another day in the life of the Beyhive! Who are they gonna sting next!
