Someone is out here trying to assassinate Beyoncé’s character and the Beyhive ain’t having it.
“Unretouched” photos of the “***Flawless” singer leaked online via a Beyoncé fan site known as The Beyoncé World, and the Internet pretty much had a major meltdown over it.

We the #Beyhive do not comment on such trivial things. Instead we ask.. When is the last time your favorite slayed anything?

Y’all put too much pressure on Beyonce. She’s not God, She’s only human.

Beyonce’s untouched images from the shoot are nice, some of you guys need to stop editing them to look worse. pic.twitter.com/HpUNuKCdXt

The close-up images are from a 2013 L’Oréal campaign and are supposed to show Beyoncé in a bad light, but we honestly don’t see what the big deal is.
If we doused your face in make-up and took close-up pictures of you using a high-powered DSLR camera, your raw images would look just like that … or dare we say … worse.
Also, how do we know these “unretouched” photos are the real deal anyhow? Someone tried to pull that mess with Justin Bieber and it turned out they were fake.
Beyoncé’s legion of fans, known as the Beyhive, somehow convinced The Beyoncé World to remove the 200+ images from their site within an hour of them being posted, but it was too late because the damage had already been done.
From The Beyoncé World:
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.
Here are some of the photos (via Defamer):
