Beyoncé 'upset by burger backlash'
Beyoncé Knowles is reportedly feeling frustrated that fans were unhappy with her latest big announcement.
The Sweet Dreams singer teased her supporters with news of a "big" announcement last week. But fans were left disappointed when it turned out to be a plug for vegan nutrition plan The 22-Revolution. In uproar, her fans spammed her Instagram account with emojis of burgers and pizza and the backlash has reportedly got to the 33-year-old.
"This latest venture has been a disaster for Beyoncé," an insider told British magazine Closer. "Instead of admiring her new figure, people are criticising her as well as ridiculing her and Jay Z as 'greedy billionaires'."
This isn't the first time the hit maker has followed a vegan diet. In 2013 she lost 65lbs by following her friend and nutritionist Marco Borges' 22-Day Vegan Challenge with husband Jay Z. The mother-of-one resumed the plan again recently, and has been showing off the results in a series of skimpy outfits on her Instagram account.
However she has been labelled a hypocrite by fans after appearing to eat a burger in her latest video Feeling Myself.
During her "big" announcement on Good Morning America last week, Beyoncé spoke about her lifelong battle with her figure.
"I'm not naturally thin, I have curves," she said. "I'm proud of my curves and I have struggled from a young age with diets. Finding something that actually works and keeps the weight off has been difficult for me."
