Beyonce photos: publicist asks BuzzFeed to remove unflattering images
Beyonce photos: unflattering or no, once they're on the internet, they are on the internet.
Beyonce's publicist contacted BuzzFeed after reporter Lauren Yapalater published a post highlighting the singer's "fiercest" moments from her Super Bowl performance. The PR flak complained the pictures were "unflattering" and asked for them to be replaced with others.
Buzzfeed, of course, declined. Instead, the site ran a second post citing the publicist's email and drawing attention to the seven photos the PR flak wanted to remove.
It's called the Streisand effect. Attempting to suppress information has the opposite effect of causing information to spread further. Maybe now we should be referring to it as the Beyonce effect?
