A History Of Unfortunate Beyonce Haters

It’s hard to believe there was actually a time when people tried to go against Queen Bey. Before she reigned over the hive and snapped everyone into formation, she had some “famous” doubters, haters and instigators.

Beyonce has come a long way from defending her career. She now has a Carter dynasty to fall back on, despite her personal ups and downs. Bey pushed through with a smile and annihilated the hateration. Here’s a history of her most saltiest naysayers, looking like a “Where are they now?” forum…

Sucks! Take a look.

Keri Hilson

The beehive had to put Miss Keri in her place after assuming hse was talking about King Bey in her verse for “Turning me on” back in 2009. Apparently people thought she was was taking jabs, telling Bey to sit down have some babies. Welp! She did. Now what?

Keyshia Cole

Remember when Keyshia Cole said Beyonce was wrong for telling women to “bow down” on 2013? The fish plate jokes buried her career, only to be recovered through reality tv appearances.

The CMA’s

The Country Music Awards tried to shade Beyonce by not honoring her Daddy Lesson’s track as a country hit. Bey stung back by performing and grabbing rating, then snatching her audience back as soon as she left the screen. Bye, redneck haters!
