Beyoncé is not okay with her likeness being used to sell beers! The singer recently issued a cease and desist to a Brooklyn-based beer maker who was selling "Bïeryoncé," a Bey-inspired pilsner. Click through for more details on the controversy!
“As a Hispanic, female-run business owner, I am very inspired by Beyoncé, so I thought I’d pay homage,” Brooklyn's Lineup Brewing's owner, Katarina Martinez, told Pitchfork.
Martinez wanted to make the Bey-inspired beverage after missing one of her shows when she'd already bought tickets.
“We’re disappointed she didn’t take it as a compliment, but oh well," Martinez said. "It was fun while it lasted!”
You can still get some of the one-time batch in New York while it lasts!
Now, Bey can go back to living her best life and hitting No. 1 with Ed Sheeran and their new duet, "Perfect."
