In case you were wondering, Beyonce is real.
Fan website The Beyonce World has leaked 224 un-photoshopped photos of Queen Bey.
The shots are from the pop star’s 2013 L’Oreal campaign.
The fan site has since taken down the images at the request of Beyonce’s team, “the Beyhive”, but not before they went viral.
In response, The Beyonce World said:
“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 part 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.”
Although some fans are outraged that anyone would consider throwing shade on Queen Bey…
…The general reaction to the photos has been quite moderate.
Having said that,the pics are indeed a far cry from the image we see in the final L’Oreal Infallible campaign…
And here's how Beyonce portrays herself through social media:
