Beyoncé’s Publicist Asks Websites to Remove ‘Unflattering Photos’ from Super Bowl Performance
[UPDATE] Beyonce’s publicist has won at least one battle. She successfully convinced media photo service Getty Images this week to remove six “unflattering” photos of Beyoncé from its library.
[ORIGINAL STORY] We’ve all been the subject of unflattering pictures. And usually, we deal with it. Not Beyoncé. The singer’s publicist has reportedly asked a website to remove some photos snapped of the singer during her Super Bowl 47 halftime performance.
According to Gawker, Beyoncé’s publicist, Yvette Noel-Schure of Schure Media, sent the following note to Buzzfeed about the inclusion of six specific photos the website featured in a post that collected the singer’s “fiercest” moments from her halftime performance at Super Bowl 47 this past Sunday:
Thanks for taking my call. As discussed, there are some unflattering photos on your current feed that we are respectfully asking you to change. I am certain that you will be able to find some better photos.
The worst are #5, 6, 10, 11, 12, 19 and 22.
Thank you very much.
Of course, Buzzfeed’s post of Beyoncé’s 33 fiercest moments is still alive and well with the images intact. Because it’s the Internet. And the request is silly.
