Beyonce Sparks Controversy Again After Blocking Jesus In Last Supper Instagram Photo

Beyonce Beysus controversy Beyonce is in hot water again after she posted a picture on her Instagram account of her sitting in the front of a mural of “The Last Supper” where she also is blocking Jesus.

When Beyonce posted the photo on her social media a few days ago, comments began flooding the R&B star’s page accusing of her trying to replace the image of Jesus in Leonardo da Vinci’s famous painting with her own image.

Since then, the Huffington Post exposed a few flaws in the accusations claiming that Beyonce was disrespecting Jesus but it hasn’t been enough to convince social media users that the “Bow Down” songstress isn’t disrespecting Christianity.

The image portrayed behind the Miami juice bar where the mural was located is actually an Andy Warhol interpretation of “The Last Supper,” not an actual copy of da Vinci’s work.

It also turned out that the length of the bar matches the length of the mural which means Beyonce may have simply chosen that spot because it was the center of the bar, not because she wanted to intentionally block Jesus.

Still, many of Beyonce’s former fans feel as if she should have been more aware of her placement considering that she is a Christian woman.

“Is nothing sacred anymore?” president of the American Family Association, Tim Wildom, asked. “This is clearly an act of disrespect towards Jesus Christ, whom Beyonce covers up with her pose. This had to be done intentionally.”

Beyonce Last Supper controversy Social media users who claimed to be former fans of the R&B star called the picture “disrespectful” and “of poor taste.”

“She is always so deliberate about the image she portrays so she had to have some idea of this impact,” one user wrote under the image on Instagram.

“Looks like the Last Supper, instead of Jesus its Beyonce,” another comment read. “Ummm epic fail boo. Jesus Christ is my savior, not you. Besides that, I love Beyonce, but you will never be God.”

Wildom added that he felt as if Beyonce isn’t being as heavily criticized as “Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson, who was criticized for making homophobic comments, because Christianity is the one thing that people in American are allowed to attack “with impunity.”

“However, you will not see the media condemn her for offending Christians in the same way they did Phil Robertson for offending homosexuals because there is a double-standard,” Wildom said. “Christians are the only group in America you can bash with impunity.”

While other fans slammed the star for her nickname “Beysus,”the controversial moniker came from Beyonce’s fans and has never been embraced or repeated by Beyonce herself.

Beyonce hasn’t comment publicly on the Instagram photo.

The “Last Supper” controversy comes shortly after the 32-year-old powerhouse singer was bashed for using audio from the Challenger explosion on her song “XO.”

    People can get the big head so fast when it comes to being famous and having money. I really think they change into some other person, bad or good. B is doing to much offending her Christians fans.

  2. Christian Fans? How can you be a real Christian and then be a fan of someone who has obviously strayed away from Christ and His Teachings. Her husband is a follower and worshipper of Satan and he is not trying to hide it. This is why she does things like this because she knows those so called Christian fans will still by her music which amounts to dollars for her. If those people were really Fans of Jesus Christ they would not patronize her anymore for her disrespect you might see less of this. Just my opinion! I am not a fan

  3. people or fans should get off with this artist,she is portraying herself seems a replacement of Christ.

  4. You guys are crazy!! Social media is horrible, you say she is disrespecting Christians. Well aren't you everyday when you sin..clear example of a sinner calling another sinner a sinner..SMDH!!

  5. I'm not one to judge but I'd be stupid to think that she didn't know what she was doing.

    Liking and leading are two different things. The disciples were sinners too and had struggles but that did not keep them from going to churches where there was sinfulness going on. And they called them on it. Yeah the world is enticing but God looks at our hearts. That's the difference.

    Lol y'all funny

    Yall Black people are so lost. How can you get mad at what she is doing when that picture is not even CHRIST. That picture is a picture of CESARE BORGIA. The Romans put that graven Image up to be CHRIST. They need to burn every picture of CHRIST because that is a graven Image. Please Black People stop worshipping that image. I could say "white Jesus) but we shouldn't worship any image.

  9. Apparently, you are not…
    Your equation of Mrs. Carter and My Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ is an insult to me. How dare you question the validity of Christians? Jesus says, if they are not against us, then they are for us (paraphrase). NUFF Said!!!

  10. Dang, people, It is just a picture, and not even of Jesus. Fact is, that and other so-called portraits of Jesus does not even look like Him (I hope). Jesus is a Spirit, and they that worship Him must do so in Spirit and Truth. Let the Q-Bey alone and work out your own salvation with trembling and fear. NUFF Said!!!

  11. Im very excited VincentVanessa! I lost 13 pounds in two weeks using these new drops I saw on TV. I got it from this website, visit —> www. RaspTea. com
