Beyonce's Publicist Wants These Unflattering Photos from the Super Bowl Removed from the Internet

How many times did you say, “Dayum” during last Sunday night’s half-time performance? Through sheer repetition of the word, I actually dented the roof of my mouth with my tongue. I think we can all agree that, whatever you think of Beyonce as a person, or even as a musician, lady is fine. It doesn’t matter how attractive are, it’s impossible to avoid unflattering photos, unless you’re Nathan Fillion, of course. People eat, they make faces, and they blink, and sometimes the camera catches you at just the wrong moment.

When there are literally thousands of photos being taken of you at the one of the most popular events of the year, and you’re dancing, grunting, grinding, etc., the camera is gonna catch you at a bad moment. It’s inevitable. There were a ton of photos of Beyonce from the Super Bowl, and as they do, Buzzfeed did one of their picture galleries from the Super Bowl. The next day, however, they received an email from Beyonce’s publicist asking them to remove several of those photos (via Gawker).

“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.


Now, what happens when a publicist asks to have photos removed FROM THE INTERNET? Those photos are made even more prolific on the Internet. Nice move, PR lady. Who is not going to want to see which photos were so unflattering that a publicist asked them to be removed?

Are they unflattering? I guess, for Beyonce. But then a couple of them gave me the vapors.
