More than two hundred unretouched pictures of pop star Beyonce from a campaign for a cosmetic brand have leaked online.
The 33-year-old ‘Single Ladies’ hitmaker’s look in the photos done for L’Oreal has been criticised by many as she appears to have uneven and pimply skin under heavily applied foundation, reported Aceshowbiz.
The photos were posted on a website called The Beyonce World on Wednesday, February 18. The site later removed the images following backlash from Beyonce’s fans.
“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,” the site said.
A fan tweeted, “She looks like a cigarette smoker.” Another defended, saying, “That’s beyonce? oh wow.”
