WikiHow Whitewashed This Iconic Photo Of Beyonce, Jay Z, And Barack Obama

Twitter went off, and of course, they apologized...

One of the biggest rules on the Internet: Don't mess with the BeyHive. Fans of Beyonce were livid when they saw how WikiHow reappropriated an iconic photo of her with Jay Z and Barack Obama— by turning them all white.

The "how-to" site featured the photo of the smiling friends in the article "How To Become A Congressman." For some unknown reason, all three black celebrities were turned white. Huh?

Here's a side-by-side comparison of the original image and the imitation:

WikiHow has since apologized. "When we saw the whitewashed image of Obama, Jay Z & Beyoncé, we were disgusted & ashamed. It never should have been on wikiHow," the site tweeted. 

The photo is so famous that back in 2012, tabloids used it to prove that Beyonce had a "crush" on the President. The internet never forgets.
