More than two hundred unretouched photos of Beyonce in L’Oreal’s 2013 ad campaign have surfaced online.
The photos showed Queen Bey with uneven and pimply skin that was made more unflattering by too much foundation applied on her face.
The leaked photos were uploaded by the fan site called The Beyonce World. However, the site had since taken the photos down due to commotion it created among the Beyonce fans, specifically the BeyHive.
“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,” The Beyonce World said in a statement.
The site said it posted the photos in good faith. “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.”
