Beyoncé isn’t perfect but you should probably think twice before pointing out that she is anything less than a naturally flawless goddess lest you risk the wrath of the Beyhive!
BeyonceWorld.com made waves today when it posted un-retouched shots of Beyoncé from a photo shoot for L’Oreal. The pictures, which had yet to be caressed by the smudge tool, showed that Bey’s skin isn’t necessarily as smooth as glass.

In all honesty, the shots are not that bad. They’re certainly no worse than anything you might see from people you actually know on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter. She looks—dare we say it—like a normal woman with imperfections! Ok, so Beyonce has a few lines. Big deal, right?
fansite for posting the potentially unflattering shots. One of them even took it to the authorities!
I’ve reported those leaked Beyonce pictures to the FBI

Still others just couldn’t bring themselves to believe that Bey did not, in fact, wake up like this.
I have seen Beyoncé in person. What she looks like in pictures is what she looks like in real life. Those “leaked” pictures are fake. — BeyoncéStan (@stan4yonce) February 18, 2015

That Beyonce pic looks photoshopped. Makes her minor acne look worse than what it is.

Having nearly been stung to death by the Beyhive, Beyonce World yanked all of the pics down and promptly posted an apology instead.
Due to the disdain of the BeyHive, we have removed the photos. We don’t want to cause any drama, nor do we wish to start fan wars. Some of the things we have seen posted were just horrible, and we don’t want any parts of it. We were just posting the photos to share the fact that our queen is naturally beautiful, at the same time she is just a regular woman.
