Beyonce Nefertiti

Beyonce Knowles is capitalizing off of the nonsense #Bitegate story that has swept the Internet. The 38-year-old mother-of-3 released new tour merchandise while ignoring the latest tale from pathological liar Tiffany Haddish, who claims an other actress bit the singer in the face.

The new merchandise is a tribute to Queen Nefertiti whom Beyonce has long misappropriated for her concert attire.

Egyptians are upset that Beyonce is profiting off of their history.

"As an Egyptian, I deel insulted," wrote on Twitter user.

"Ugh no sweetie, I adore you but Cultural Appropriation is not okay," wrote another Twitter user.

The new merchandise includes a white Nefertiti cropped top, a black Nefertiti hoodie, an orange Nefertiti "contact sheet" long sleeve shirt and a white Nefertiti t-shirt -- all featuring Beyonce's injury-free face.

The new merchandise is affordably priced under $60.

Would you buy Beyonce's Nefertiti-inspired clothing?

    "Would you buy Beyonce’s Nefertiti-inspired clothing?"
    I wouldn't wear anything Beyonce even if it was given to me for free.

  • Miss Thang

    Who would buy this crap? I'd be embarrassed to wear it.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    chile .... ?

  • angrysolo

    everybody wants to be insulted. at this point i really wouldn’t give a hoot if a yt person was walking around in blackface. if you want to look like a clown go on. of all the agregeious things to be offended, and upset about. i got 99 problems and a t-shirt ain’t 1. get money beyonce

  • Miss Thang

    Can Beyonce close her mouth in any of the pictures?

  • Luvn_it

    Problem is she's not appropriating their history b/c it's not their history in the 1st place. Arab history in Egypt only goes back to 700 a.d anything before that is not their history.

  • Yoni7

    Why Tiffany gotta be a pathological liar tho'? What did SHE do to anyone?

  • Reina1718

    Beyonce ignores all criticism ????

  • Roxie Moxie

    It's not all about money all the time. Those who worship it think so.

    Would you say the same thing about Kylie who also used an image (Tupac) on her T-shirts to sell? And w/o asking for permission to boot! It's about respect and principle. Money isn't the most important thing in this world.

    Oh and by the way, F Beyonce. *thumbs up*

  • goat

    Those present day Egyptians(Arabs) don't even respect the old Egyptian culture. FOH.
    And since we're here, lets talk about her people still selling black people into slavery!

  • goat


  • iWasteTime

    How is it appropriation when you're of African decent!?!?
    Fluck out of here Egyptians.
    African descendants were more mad about this "what Nefertiti would look like" bust than Egyptians.

  • Mec-One

    Don't question the shade lol

  • angrysolo

    money ain’t everything. OK. we ALL have BILLS. (tupac is a dead man) and if somebody is willing to buy my used socks for $50 a pop.. so be it

  • Yoni7

    Hey soccer mom Kate on date night. LOL #blessherhortshetried

  • Dystaney Kimble

    That's what I'm saying ?!?

  • SandraRose

    She lied about Brad Pitt asking to date her. His camp contacted her people and demanded she retract that lie. She's a desperate attention-seeker. It's all fun and games until she lies about the wrong person.

  • Kemi

    There’s an identity crisis going on in that country. Most of them don’t consider themselves as Africans, or have the desire to have any association with the African continent which they are a part of. Smh

  • WutizstillHERE!

    First off..from my understanding of the way the map is set up..Egypt is in Africa..dafuk? Let me check n see if it has moved..

  • stav

    These new Egyptians are not ancient Egyptians which of course was black. They have many cultures and ethnicities combined , but will not admit to the black part. How are they bothered when they are not black as Nefertiti was?

  • Rayne

    Nope I wouldn’t buy that cause I don’t wear clothing with pictures on them.

  • JV

    It seems odd to me that they accuse Beyoncé of cultural appropriation, as if she couldn't have ancestral ties to Egypt.

  • Keekz


  • Pitty Patty

    That's a dope ass shirt. I want one. I might by one and wear it to the concert.

  • Keekz

    Damn, why are you asserting Tiffany Haddish is a pathological liar? That's a harsh and damning accusation.

  • MsPam

    Let me get up and do my praise dance! ??

  • Dahl

    I’m not a fan, but I also don’t think she should be criticized any more for this than for wearing Indian women’s hair. Or the “Wakadans” wearing tradition Kenyan or Tanzanian garb. Or these whack a$$ Cowboys fans here in Philly ? Pont is, EVERYONE is guilty of appropriation at some point, get over if...

  • stav

    The bottom line being black is black, which Nefertiti was! We can't appropriate our own history , culture , and race.

  • WutizstillHERE!

    Maybe she also did it to reclaim Neffie from them clear pepo who made the queen look like them when they did that trash recreation.

  • angrysolo

    and every time Haddish opens her mouth she proves this fact o’er and o’er. and BEYond whether any of her lies are even half truths, these hollyweird types don’t like people who “kiss and tell”

  • Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    ummm, i wouldn't wear or buy any of this, but are they really gonna attack Bey over this when every 'mummy' 'lost ark' 'b.c.' movie produced by hollyweird contains some form of "appropriation" and/or misrepresentation. all these yt actresses in 'dark' makeup over the years being presented to the masses as an acceptable version of Nef, but NOW they're insulted???? Ironic that they yell "appropriation" at Bey using an AFRICAN image, but been crypt silent on all the rest. argh!

  • SDot

    why she's african american.
    Stop I don't believe this.


    Then shits fire tho ??????.. can't lie..

  • Keekz

    I'm asking, because want to know what she lied about.

  • hi-liter

    Be mad at the people at Bristol University working on the Queen Nefertiti bust whom recreated it to look white-washed, with a MUCH LIGHTER skin tone. The 3D image practically looks like a half white woman, when ancient history tells us ancient Egypt was full of Black folk.

  • ?Sugar&Spice?

    that's how yall do other people. LOL see how it feels?

  • Keekz

    I don't have a dog in the fight. However, when labeling someone a pathological liar, you need facts to support that claim. Otherwise both y'all are liars.

  • Marlika

    Her stupid stands got her thinking she’s a queen.?? The only thing she is a queen of is being an attention whore.


  • Marlika

    She irks my nerves!

  • hi-liter

    You CANT culturally appropriate YO OWN PEOPLES!!!!!!!!! Queen Neffie was BLACK, BEY is BLACK, see how that works?

  • We Can Do This


  • Keekz

    First of all how many people made comments if it .000005% of the Egyptian population.....its negligible. Don't get upset because a few people are displeased. Can't satisfy everyone, and those people have a right to their opinion.

  • FukkFolks2018

    When those movie studio emails leaked a few years back, it was said that Angelina Jolie was set to play Cleopatra in the upcoming remake of the movie. I did not see not one Egyptian upset about that. Not on social media. Nowhere. So why the outrage now? Fukk their fake outrage

  • Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    this just looks like an old yt woman with too much botox and self tanner dreadful.

  • Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    eye jess said this, smh

  • FukkFolks2018

    I grew up with two Egyptian girls. They are sisters. Pretty much they said that Egyptians are enamored with the white man, and turn their nose up at darker-skinned people. Both of them had majority black friends and their dad was okay with it but their mom was not.

  • Karen Brady

    I'm with you there.

  • Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    they told the truth and nothing but! i aint got time for it. fugg 'em.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    There's only one tweet featured so I am going to go out on a limb and say that the rest of the Egyptians feel the same way about this as I do (blah).

    Are you all's office open tomorrow or nah?

  • Liah

    I wish I thought I would!#FOH

  • Liah


  • SweetTEE

    So they are mad that a Black woman is representing her black culture? But white actors and actresses can play roles as Egyptians? -Get money bish.

  • MissHarlem

    I'm not concerned about these new Egyptians who conveniently forget the root of our history. Over there white washing walls to make history look white literally and have the unmitigated gall when the original finally gets intense to the real. Chile please ??

  • Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    they're open (but i'm closed) Lol!

  • Anunnaki


  • xenaD

    Pathological liar ?... yup lol

  • morenYAHdelsur

    “Egyptians are upset that Beyonce is profiting off of their history.”

    Really? Let’s argue! I’m game LOL. Those “Egyptians” had nothing to do with classical Egypt just as “Americans” in this country are not true indigenous Americans.

  • Cali

    OK, just went to Twitter and don't see the outrage. People are not THAT stupid, clearly she is representing the Authentic un-colonized Africans so....

  • Wreckognize Game

    I might be wrong but didn't they say that Tiff Haddish's father is Egyptian? I wouldn't be surprised if Tiff don't show up at one if those concerts dressed as Queen Nefertiti

  • TheOwley

    That cultural appropriation word is thrown around a lot when people dabble in culture not their own for profit. So, what good for the goose ......
    It's not cool to walk like an Egyptian either.

  • Durbhad CC

    I can’t believe she would tell that story don’t know if I believe it happened but I definitely believe SL indulges.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Same folks last week, along with a blind Stevie Wonder, were giving Bruno Mars a pass. FOH.

    Tiffany Haddish isn't funny though. I wonder will she distanced herself from Groupon since they started offering deals on N i gg er brown boots. Probably not, they apologized.

  • Bonsai

    These present day Egyptians aren't the original Kemits anyway. Ignorance is not bliss, it's evil.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Tiffanys father is Eritrean.... Eritrea is about 1000 miles from Egypt...

  • SweetTEE

    Yes, let them stay MAD. They might was well buckle their seat belts bc we're coming to take all of our culture back.

  • Bonsai


  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Chile.... that Nefertiti bust looked like she shops at Whole Foods doesn't use seasoning and don't spank her kids...

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Yep. I HATE when mf's pick and choose who to be upset at when all 10 people doing the same thing. Today, it's Beyonce, but will justify a pass for all others, including being mum about AJ playing Cleopatra in a movie.

  • SweetTEE

    I wonder do they even know this. Or are they literally ignorant to this information? Or are they like white people in this country?

  • Bonsai

    I get a two hour early dismissal. Hip hip hooray!!!

  • Ny MaGee

    My pastor friend who travels to Egypt quite often said that when she tours the pyramids, the guides tell the tourists that white folks built the pyramids and some of the hieroglyphics have been re-painted to reflect their "white worship" and support the lie they're pushing that whites are natives to the land.

  • Alicia.Ashe

    What outrage, when Nefertiti was black.

  • Wreckognize Game

    Ok, thank you. I wasn't sure

  • Kanyade

    those Egyptians need to kick rocks.
    didn't they blow the nose off of the Sphinx? to cover up the fact that he was modeled after a brother?
    also, do they object when LOTS OF CELEBRITIES dress as Nefertiti?


    The reach!!! Especially when you have white women......

  • what?why


    NO ONE believes the story of the bitten face.

  • Kanyade

    look at you with the edumacation!
    go 'head!

  • Kanyade

    that's the go to look for "sultry".

    #TyraTaughtMe lol

  • desidan80

    Please say it again for the kids in the back. WTF are they angry for. They are foreigners in their own country. Hiding all of the melanin and ish.....smh

  • KB

    Fawk no!

  • 88

    Learn some history Nefertiti was a demon she used to beat the hell out of the so called negroes yet they glorify her.

  • KB

    You got to be joking. I've always wanted to go but what's the point if they've totally desecrated the authenticity of such historical treasures. This bummed me out. WTH were they thinking?

  • KB
  • brillant smith

    Oh really? I'm look her up.

  • i troll it like i see it

    I recently read that Egyptians are in deep denial of their African heritage and hate, HATE, their African blood. They don't even consider Egypt a part of the African continent. It was abhorrently racist. I didn't know they were like that. I got a feeling if Lady Gaga dressed up as Nefertiti they'd be happy.

  • Trace da Ace

    NO NO NO NO NO NO NO!!!!
    These shirts are ALL KINDS of NO!! They are fugly as hell and I bet they cost 69.99.....waste of money.....

  • free

    looks like it was sold at a flea market.

  • TMW

    I don't like any of Beyonce's merchandise because it looks like DIY iron-on stiff - just cheap looking, but it costs an arm and a leg.

    IDK about the biting story. It's so outlandish, it's hard to believe that someone would make it up, let alone keep talking about it in different interviews. And other blogs say Sanaa Lathan did it - does she have that kind of rep?? They are dragging her!

  • Yoni7

    We don't care about Brad. What else you got? LOL xoxo LOL


    Pathological liar ??? I almost fell off the toilet... ?? But yea these shirts are plain and ugly. I can make these im my garage or at the nearest Walgreens for less. But damn I thought Black and Gay people was so sensitive, now Egyptians? Not the first time some dressed like that tho.

  • Guest

  • ?Royalty?

  • CookieMobster

  • abby500

  • Ling

    Egyptians do not identify as black.

  • StayathomeMom

    Why Tiffany gotta be a pathological liar?

  • Layah Jhene

    Don't care about Beyonce or The Egyptians

  • ebonics

    Wish I could upvote this 1000x! ???

  • ebonics

  • Malcom Flex

    F the Egyptians they hate anything black and Mother Africa!! Keep making money, Bey!!


    The "DIY LOOK" is a fashion trend.. do u follow fashion? ? the look of her merchandise is "IN". Smh


    It's supposed to look like that.

  • TMW

    No I don't follow fashion at all. I wear what I like.

  • Conscience

    Original Egyptians were black. If you in Egypt and you not black you Arab. So stop talking about you mad. You just want to erase the original history of Egypt. Who you think you fooling ?


    Present day Egyptians mad about what? Like they are the same Egyptians that built the Pyramids.... LMAOOOO WHo they think they are fooling....


    Well they think Cherokees have blue eyes and blonde hair.... Elizabeth Warren... The Original Pocahontas.

  • jazzysmith12

    Lol, those fake Egyptians over there.

  • jazzysmith12

    lol ,but ancient KHEMET wasn't white.HELL, the whole planet was blk at one point.Just ask the beautiful sun who hates the Neanderthal skin!!!

  • Mrs. ??????????

    Beyoncé looks stupid, she cant model to save her life. This stuff looks like cheap crap just like house of dead wrong.

  • zero options

    I think it a muslim that got pissed when he saw egyptians making offerings to the sphinx.
    another popular belief is that french soldiers shot off the nose.

  • zero options

    She can atone by first learning to spell "N E F E R T I T I", of course we all know that won't happen.
    Maybe they can sponsor school trips to egyptian antiquities tours in the united states...uh, that won't probably happen either.
    I know..they can take a trip to egypt..well probably not, Jay Z might be mistaken for a camel....
    Never mind...

  • Lady_Elle

    Capitalism... if people like it they will buy it.
    With all of the things STOLEN from black people... I have no sympathies for some Egyptian that is ticked off.

  • Julia Lyons

    Nobody in Bey's camp is willing to tell her that when she holds her mouth like that she looks slow.????

  • nikki jones


  • nikki jones

    I was thinking the same thing. "Their culture"...HA!

  • Brenda Purcell

    I guess that they don’t know that the ORIGINAL Egyptians were black! Smdh

  • Brenda Purcell

    Amen! People really are ignorant to the fact that the ENTIRE planet was black and that we will return to that again!!

  • Quitedeliteful

    The up side is that she can bring awareness to ancient African civilization with some cheap merchandise and I'm okay with it. This may even get people to do some reading on ancient Egypt and their contributions to the world...

  • Quitedeliteful

    What in the boring, I don't really give two shyts but I wanna know anyway, hell is the story about Bouncey getting bitten in the face? Can anybody tell me in like 50 words or less??

  • Tausha T. W.

    Would they complain if Beyonce were white?

  • Skin Deep Beauty


  • Cannelle

    The merchandise is stupid, but (non-black) contemporary Egyptians are anti-black AF. They will try to convince everyone that Egypt is not a part of Africa, when anyone with working eyes can see that it is. The non-white ones want to be white so badly, but when they bring their As to Europe they are instantly rejected by the White Walkers. This is what a colonized mind does to people. Sad state of affairs.

    On a side note, out of all of the rich cultures in Africa, why is it that black American folks latch on to Egypt? My ancestors didn't come from there, they came from west Africa.

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    Complaints already made against the White woman who tried IT!!

  • Candance

    Hmmmmmmmm......... What would the world look like if we turned the comments off for 1 day! First off. She looks like Beyonce in a hat. Why cant she just have pictures of Beyonce in a hat on merch? I really don't see the huge deal! One day we are all going to be dead and none of this petty *tihs* is going to matter! #letherlive

  • MRiGOThim

    She may have some Egyptian in her who knows...

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    They can go sit down with that bull?. I tell you people just wanna have something to say. I swear social media is a mutha-fukkca.

  • BR….

    Ok so are we forgetting about all the people in the late 80s (Queen Latifah, Phyllis Hyman etc) that would wear that kind of headwear, but now it’s an issue cuz Beyoncé is wearing it? It’s a hat ...

  • CocoBabe88

    Everything has to be a thing ?

  • Guess Who

    AS soon as EGYPTIANS acknowledge that the ONLY REASON why they're arab looking now is because of the greeks and middle eastern colonizers.....then they can talk about cultural appropriation. Until then...SUCK IT.
