Yesterday, we discovered that Kanye West had apparently forced the photo wire service Getty to remove a series of photos of himself in a skirt. Today, Beyoncé's publicist is going around trying to get these unflattering photos of her famous client performing at the Super Bowl taken down.
Kanye was successful—as far as we can tell, you can't buy a photo of the rapper in a skirt, anywhere. But Beyoncé? You can still get those unflattering photos.
On Monday, our pals at Buzzfeed assembled an incoherent list of 33 Beyoncé pictures and GIFs taken from her Super Bowl performance, and posted it under the title "The 33 Fiercest Moments From Beyoncé's Halftime Show."
On Tuesday, they received an email from Beyoncé's publicist ("head worker bey"), politely asking them to DESTROY ALL UNFLATTERING PHOTOS OF BEYONCÉ IN EXISTENCE.
"Thanks for taking my call. As discussed, there are some unflattering photos on your current feed that we are respectfully asking you to change. I am certain that you will be able to find some better photos.
The worst are #5, 6, 10, 11, 12, 19 and 22.
Thank you very much.
Obviously, we'd never want to displease Beyoncé's publicist. But she clearly doesn't understand her client. According to the Third Immutable Natural Law Of Beyoncé, there is no better photo of Beyoncé than the photo of Beyoncé you are viewing, because at that moment, it is the best of all possible Beyoncé photos. This is one of the great Mysteries of Beyoncé. Therefore we present to you Six Moving, Amazing Photos of Beyoncé. Please enjoy.
These are the photos Beyoncé's publicist asked Buzzfeed to remove
Hilarious Michelle .gifs be warned. You are next.
(J/K, Michelle probably doesn't have a publicist.)
