- Sarah Langa was giving a compliment to Ayanda Thabethe but it blew up in her face
- Saying that anyone is better-looking than US superstar Beyoncé is a big transgression for her fans
- It didn't take long for the Beyhive to start reacting and roasting Sarah with no mercy
If there's one thing that can be said about American pop icon Beyoncé it's that her South African fans are fiercely loyal.
It just takes one word for them to start biting back at whoever decided to get on their bad side.
This time, it was Sarah Langa, local influencer and model. It started innocently enough - Sarah commented on media personality Ayanda Thabethe's Halloween outfit. However, the comment didn't sit right with Queen Bey's followers.
Ayanda had dressed up in a golden dress inspired by Beyoncé and she looked great, but Sarah thought she looked better than the original.
"Ayanda Thabethe is actually prettier than Beyoncé."
This was when things went south, and quick. Check out the reactions from fans who were not holding back:
You'd think people would know better than to say anything negative about Beyoncé or members of Destiny's Child, her former band. Very recently, Anele Mdoda got burned just as badly when she commented on Kelly Rowland's looks.
Briefly.co.za reported that things got so bad South Africans distanced themselves from her on social media.
