The internet is gagging over Beyonce’s “wider-than-humanly-possible” thigh-gap and had the nerve to call it a mini-controversy! I guess the mini is supposed to make us feel better about the fact that we’re making the space between Beyonce’s thighs…a thing.
The minute Beyonce posted the above photo on her Instagram, golfing in the Dominican Republic, Beyhive members, Beyonce stans and Beyonce haters all over the world gathered together to comment on her thighs. Many of them claiming they were photoshopped:
I will admit, Beyonce’s thighs are looking a bit edited in the photo. On the inside of her right thigh (your right), you can see some distortion. I am not photoshop expert, but I have eyes and can see that (in the words of Phaedra), something in the buttermilk ain’t clean.
Beyonce calls herself a feminist, often rallying for women around carefully chosen issues–#BanBossy, sexual liberation for women and challenging gender equality. A few folks on Instagram challenged Bey’s dedication to women, specifically around body issues because of this alleged photoshopped picture. I get it. Beyonce’s actions weigh heavily on pop culture and she has a responsibility to uplift women because she’s chosen to and now it’s expected of her with every move she makes.
