A Beehive vs Beyhive warfare was set off by a one-letter distinction on Twitter. One of the honorees at the 2019 BET Hip Hop Awards was Lil’ Kim. She was presented with the ‘I am Hip Hop’ award in Georgia, on October 8. Naturally, she thanked her fans on stage. Beyoncé Knowles’s fans didn’t like the way she referred to her fans, though. Lil’ Kim gushed on the podium, “This is for you, Beehive!” And that didn’t bode nicely with Beyhive. Even though it is spelt differently, Beyhive came after the rapper on Twitter like wildfire. Stay tuned to find out what shocking turns this warfare of fan bases took on social media.
Beehive vs Beyhive Warfare
The fan bases of the two celebrities went head to head after Lil’ Kim’s shout-out at BETA Hip Hop Awards. Fans said that just because she is called Queen B, she shouldn’t refer to her fans as Beehive. Fans of Lil’ Kim interjected that she has been calling them Beehive since the ’00s. Beyoncé adopted the tag in 2011, a decade later. In her 1996 observe, “Crush on you,” Lil’ Kim referred to herself as Queen Bee. She also dropped “Tha Beehive” in 2003. In that, she rapped ‘because here comes the beehive’. It was only in 2011 that Beyhive became a play on Beyoncé’s identity. Most BET viewers are just confused. There are jokes about someone getting sued all over the internet. What’s wrong with Queen BEE thanking BEEhive?
Let’s Drop the Feud
Lil’ Kim is Queen Bee. She calls her fans Beehive. Beyoncé is Queen Bey. She calls her fans Beyhive. Nobody should be getting sued over this. They are both talented artists with fan bases that have similar names. This should not be a matter of comparison or backlashing. What should be the focus is how big the night was for Lil’ Kim. The night was so big that it called for three changes of outfits. For the red carpet, she wore a custom pink tuxedo dress from Dapper Dan x Gucci. For her performance, she had a bedazzled cat-suit designed by Angel Brinks on. To accept her award, she wore a black mini dress, stockings and fur-lined shrug.
