Some fans joked the moment reminded them of a scene from The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie, while others acknowledged something similar happened to Beyoncé during her Renaissance world tour last summer.

In June 2023, the "Single Ladies" singer looked "pissed" after tour workers seemed to miss their cue to help her down from a prop horse on stage during the final song of her concert in Amsterdam, as OK! previously reported.

Beyoncé remained seated on the sparkly fake animal throughout the entirety of singing her song "Summer Renaissance" after a stage crew member appeared to arrive too late to assist the superstar in safely stepping back down on the floor.

At the time, a fan reacted to the incident, tweeting: "This was a lot… the crew in the photo, dancers where they’re not supposed to be, Reneigh [the horse’s name] and Beyoncé still on the ground, Beyoncé slapping the crew members hand after they tried to tug on her, her pushing the staircase away cause she was pissed off… this show was chaotic."
