There has been many heated “debates” since Beyonce’s concert series began Friday night. One of those debates had to deal with Kim Kardashian. A lot of tweets were circulating the night Kim appeared at Revel, taking many pics with Beyonce’s dancers and crew (but none with Bey.)
Everyone could smell the stench of desperation and opportunism. I really didn’t mind Kim taking a picture with Beyonce only because I knew Beyonce was nice enough to do such a thing for a fan…. And this didn’t necessarily mean they associated as friends. Beyonce holds a certain reputation in media that wouldn’t allow a friendship with Kim. If the two haven’t been photographed together in the past, it may never happen. But I’m sure they speak and have met. Kim isn’t with Kanye for no reason at all.
I was going to create a post strictly dedicated to Kim’s thirst and one to defend the Beys, but when news broke of the BeyHive forcing someone to delete their Twitter, I changed my mind.
I think it’s very understandable when the Beys can use their “stanism” to create everlasting humor when dragging someone (like Keri Hilson) in Beyonce’s defense. But, when does dragging go too far?
Yesterday, it was mentioned that the BeyHive had forced @dreamhampton to delete her Twitter account after bashing her daughter who is pictured with Bey above. I asked around to get as much of the story as I possibly could, and this is what I came up with.
It seem as though Beyonce Promo, a Bey fan account, had tweeted a cropped photo of Beyonce. But that’s not what started it. The above picture was posted to Beyonce.com, and apparently, @dreamhampton somehow thought it was Beyonce Promo’s fault.
But it didn’t stop there. The BeyHive actually proceeded to call Dream Hampton’s daughter all types of names including “ugly.” I didn’t search for any disparaging tweets because I’m sure they would’ve turned me off to my Bey brothers and sisters even more.
The point of this post is to raise the questions “Why?” and “When is enough enough?” I think dragging someone in a humorous manner (even though I’ve been known to step out of that box) is okay. But when that one stan goes a little far and tries attacking the life and soul of an individual in front of God and everybody, I have to sit back and look at my timeline like, “Do you really believe Bey will respect us anymore?” Particularly after she spoke about the Hive in an interview saying that we go too far sometimes. That was really the pivotal moment I pulled back as much as I did.
I know it can be difficult reading all the hateful tweets about her and us, but when will we learn to pick our battles? And is it ever appropriate to battle at all?
