The host did it during Wednesday’s episode of “The Real,“ after she told a story of meeting Jay-Z before he was married to Beyoncé and she was married to Adam Housley. The former “Sister, Sister” star said she was 23 years old at the time and was instantly attracted to Jay upon meeting him.
“When I met him, you do get, like, hit with the charm,” she recalled. “I found myself strangely asking for gum. It’s so weird, I swear. My sister and I were at a premiere of ‘Nutty Professor,’ he walked by, I was like ‘Oh my God, that’s Jay-Z,’ and I was like ‘Can I have some gum,’ and he gave me some gum. I actually was attracted to him in the moment.”
Afterward, the singer’s fans bombarded a photo of Mowry and her husband with bee emojis and angry comments.
“Why are you reminiscing on a married man,” someone wrote.
“Next time tread lightly and watch what you say,” a second person warned.
Some may say the 40-year-old Mowry should’ve known the BeyHive would be angered by her comments, since they’re arguably the biggest celebrity rabid fan group, with the second possibly being Nicki Minaj‘s fans The Barbz.
For example, in the past the BeyHive drove their stingers in Keyshia Cole when it seemed like she criticized Beyoncé’s song “Bow Down/I Been On” and its line “Bow down bitches.”
“First women need to stick together now bitches better bow. SMH,” wrote Cole.
And people from the rock world weren’t safe either, because the BeyHive also blasted Kid Rock when he said Beyoncé doesn’t deserve to be a big star or a sex symbol, because he likes “skinny white chicks with big t-ts.”
There’s also a long list of others who’ve poked the BeyHive and dealt with the consequences, people like Raven-Symoné, Kris Jenner, and Kanye West for saying that Beyoncé is inspired by his wife Kim Kardashian.
Mowry hasn’t responded to the BeyHive yet, but some questioned why the singer’s fan base is so upset by her story.
“These bey fans are making us look bad like… i’m not even mad cos i know tamera isn’t in the wrong,” someone wrote.
