*Amber Rose was attempting to defend Kim Kardashian against the backlash over her naked selfie, only to end up disturbing the Beyhive with her mention of “half-naked” Beyonce as part of her argument.
In an interview with The Daily Beast on Monday, Rose said she and Kardashian wouldn’t be singled out for their various states of undress if they were singers.
“If we could sing, it would be OK if we were on stage half-naked,” Rose said. “We all love Beyoncé, but she’s on stage half-naked and twerking all the time, yet people say, ‘Oh, she has talent so she’s able to do that.’ We don’t have the talent that Beyoncé has, so we get criticized as former sex workers, but at the end of the day we’re just women — we’re all women — and we should all embrace each other.”
Offended by the comparison, the Beyhive moved swiftly – posting bee emojis on all of Rose’s social media outlets and clapping back on Twitter.

In response, Rose said she was “just speaking on Classism,” and said she too is “a part of the Beyhive,” adding that she “cried twice” when she met Beyonce.
Was just speaking on Classism. Look it up maybe it applies to ur life. Don’t take my words out of context ? I cried twice when I met her Lol — Amber Rose (@DaRealAmberRose) March 15, 2016
But she dug an even deeper hole for herself.

@DaRealAmberRose you say that Beyoncé doesn’t receive criticism when whole publications call her a whore, then that’s just inaccurate.
