Beyonce showed the world she has a sense of humor after a Huffington Post tweet with the singer giving her infamous side-eye went viral. The Formation singer seemed to be having a good time sitting court side next to hubby, Jay Z, for Game 6 of the NBA Finals played at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio. But cameras caught a flash of the queen, dressed in Warriors royal blue, casting a look that appeared to be major shade at a nearby Cavaliers fan, Steve Caspedes.
Although one of the Huffington Post’s senior editors, Maxwell Strachan, took to Twitter to warn him to “never look Beyonce in the eyes, you fool,” Beyonce helped Caspedes turn lemons into lemonade.
Moments after the photo of him sitting next to the musically-inclined power couple started to spread, he showed Beyonce. Luckily, Bey thought it was pretty funny. She even came up with an idea for a response – a silly pic of her staring at Caspedes with the perfect caption to counter the Huffington Post’s, “who is looking at who now.”
“Both Beyoncé and Jay Z were beyond polite and very gracious,” Cespedes also announced on his social media account.
The couple seemed to be in good spirits throughout the night as they smiled and enjoyed the roller coaster of a game.
This, just two days after Mrs. Carter gave a special closing performance of “Halo” in honor of the victims of the Orlando shooting and potentially the family of 2-year-old, Lane Graves, who was killed by an alligator at Disney World.
“Halo, [is] a song about love.”
Beyonce continued dedicating the song “to all of the family members who lost family members in Florida.”
Beyonce Prepping to Slay Audiences in Europe
On a lighter note, with the first part of the stateside Formation Tour wrapped up as of June 14, fans can expect Beyonce to set off for the European leg of her world tour before returning in September. While it’s not the end of the road for the consistently sold out tour, it marks the end for show opener, DJ Khaled. He took to Instagram to profess a long, but heartfelt thanks.
“Dreams come true Don’t ever let ‘they’ tell you you can’t do it. They told me I would never tour. Well I just finished touring with the biggest artist walking the planet.
