When Beyoncé's publicist emailed Buzzfeed earlier this week to ask that they kindly remove "some unflattering photos" of her client that were included in a listicle of "The 33 Fiercest Moments From Beyoncé's Halftime Show," little did she know that the Internet doesn't quite work that way.
In fact, that's the exact opposite of the way in which the Internet works.
Now, thanks to an unforgiving Internet phenomenon known as the Streisand Effect, those photos are not only everywhere — they've become a full-fledged meme.
Folks on Reddit and other social websites have been trampling over each other to come up with ways to make Bey's "unflattering" candids even more unflattering.
Some of the more superb examples have been posted here, but there is always room for more, so grab a template and join in.
