BuzzFeed's disastrous Beyoncé style evolution video has united the internet in disgust

Facebook

Beyoncé deserves better. 

Over the weekend, the Facebook page Top Knot, which is run by BuzzFeed's Style section, posted an original video celebrating Beyoncé's most iconic looks through the years. 

In the ninety second video, one model is transformed into the many different incarnations of Beyoncé we've seen through her illustrious career. "Single Ladies" Beyoncé, "Survivor" Beyoncé, "Formation" Beyoncé — they're all there. But here's the thing: No one can exactly replicate Beyoncé, and this video just proves it. 

You see, here is what Beyoncé looked like in the "Say My Name" video:

Twitter, naturally, immediately took notice:

To Twitter users, the looks were not only inaccurate, but disrespectful. 

And it's hard to argue with that. Like, here is what Beyoncé actually looked like in the video for "Single Ladies":

We realize that makeup and hair styling gets expensive fast, and Beyoncé sets the bar high when it comes to flawless looks — but still, we can't help but feel like this:

Mic has reached out to BuzzFeed for comment and will update upon receiving a response. 

In the meantime, we suggest no one try to even attempt to replicate Beyoncé ever again.
