Beyonce Super Bowl Photo Controversy Update: Getty Images Removes Photos of Beyonce and Kanye West

Timothy A. Clary, Getty Images

Following the Super Bowl XLVII Halftime Show, official press photos from Beyonce’s performance came under fire by Bey’s publicist. The demand was that unflattering photos be removed from a post done by Buzzfeed. Since then, things have gotten more interesting.

Getty Images, which is a press and stock photo service used by many media outlets around the world, is the source for the photos in question in this controversy. A couple days after Buzzfeed received a notice from Beyonce’s publicist about photos used in a story on their website, Getty Images has removed the exact photos Buzzfeed was asked to remove.

Getty Images has also recently obliged in removing photos of Kanye West in a skirt at the 12-12-12 concert at Madison Square Garden in December of 2012. The photos were removed on Monday of this week (February 4).

The removal of the Kanye West’s photos and now the Beyonce Halftime Show photos has the internet abuzz, asking why a news photo service would bend at the will of a couple publicists – especially over photos that are not very controversial in nature. In any case, as these “unflattering Beyonce photos” continue to get erased from the web, we have them for you to judge whether or not they are all that bad.
