Beyonce, aka “Queen Bey” is about as famous as a person can get. Despite her fame, Bey is getting all kinds of hate online for posting an obviously altered picture.
Beyonce posted the pic (below) on her IG and fans QUICKLY pointed out that is must be altered because…..well, just look at it. Stairs do not ascend like that!!

Here’s the issue…why is this such a big deal? Don’t we ALL do this in some form or another? I do. Are you the only person on the planet that takes a perfect picture every time and never wears makeup, checks the light or adds a filter when you post online?
We hold celebrities up on a pedestal and find it fun to knock them down and wait for their spirited comeback. Who doesn’t love a comeback story? But when we rip into them for things we all do, it’s bad. Like, really bad.
If you open magazines and think that’s what a person really looks like, you’ve got some issues to control. We’re all insecure, and if we can use a little makeup, add a filter or just retouch a picture a little to make ourselves feel better, so be it. Can you imagine how unbelievable it would be to be an actual celebrity? Especially one as huge as Beyonce! Everything she does is poured over and analyzed. It cannot be healthy. However, when she does something we all do she’s immediately slammed for mocking positive body images. I don’t get it.
I just always thought that you shouldn’t throw stones if you live in a glass house. You know, it’s kind of mean. But, I guess that’s what it’s all about anyway. Right?
