On Wednesday June 5, 2019 things got a little wild for the Beyhive when Beyoncé and Jay-Z attended courtside to an NBA game. Many Beyhive members accused Nicole Curran, wife of the Golden Warror’s owner, of getting too close to Beyoncé’s personal space. As a response, many flooded her Instagram page with bee emojis, “draggings” and even worse, death threats. This caused Curran to become distraught and disable her account.

Many criticized the hive for their actions, including the Queen Bey’s publicist, Yvette Noel-Schure. Yvette took to Instagram, hoping the Beyhive would take note to her message and do better.

I am looking back today at the start of The OTRII tour, one year ago. It was a place of joy, unimaginable entertainment from two of the best performers in the world, and a place of love. Every single day on that tour I saw love. Which is why I also want to speak here to the beautiful BeyHiVE. I know your love runs deep but that love has to be given to every human. It will bring no joy to the person you love so much if you spew hate in her name. We love you. 🐝 🐝 🐝
