Beyonce Blocks Jesus in The Last Supper Pic; Sparks Outrage

Beyonce is no stranger to sparking criticism or drawing controversy, she’s been doing it for a good portion of her solo career. But now has sparked a controversy by posting a picture on her Instagram account, where she can be seen posing in front of a painting that resembles Da Vinci’s “The Last Supper,” sitting in front of it and apparently covering up Jesus.

Beyoncé drew criticism soon after she posted the picture on Monday (Dec. 30th.) The singing superstar sat centered in front of the painting as if she wanted to replace Jesus in “Last Supper,” which is based on the Gospel of John and depicts Jesus’ last meal with his disciples.

“Is nothing sacred anymore? This is clearly an act of disrespect towards Jesus Christ, whom Beyoncé covers up with her pose,” Tim Wildmon, president of American Family Association, said in a statement. “This had to be done intentionally. However, you will not see the media condemn her for offending Christians in the same way they did Phil Robertson for offending homosexuals because there is a double-standard. Christians are the only group in America you can bash with impunity.”

Calling Beyonce “Beysus,” some of her followers told her she could never be their savior. “Jesus Christ is my savior, not you. Besides that, I love Beyoncé, but you will never be God,” reads one comment. Another simply wrote: “#Classless #noclass #disrespectful.”

Check out the picture in question in the slide above. What do you think about this new Beyonce controversy? Is it warranted or is this an overreaction? Sound off below!
