Fans accuse Beyonce of giving herself a ‘thigh-gap’ in Instagram shots

After wrapping a mammoth world tour, you’d think Beyoncé would enjoy the chance to kick back and not have to worry about squeezing into those elaborate body suits every night.

But it appears that there is no pause button for life as an international popstar. Even though Bey is currently holidaying in the Dominican Republic with husband Jay Z and daughter Blue Ivy, the Single Ladies singer has still been busy keeping us all up-to-date with her latest activities.

We have been gifted with several of the Carter family’s holiday snaps, but one in particular has been making ripples on the online.

The image, uploaded to Beyoncé’s personal Tumblr, has drawn criticism from commentators who are accusing Mrs Carter of photoshopping her legs to emphasise a ‘thigh gap’

In the picture, Queen B is busy perfecting her pitch and putt while sporting a retro-looking bikini (we hear it’s the ideal outfit for improving your swing), with her legs bent and slightly apart.

Seconds after uploading the image, the site was flooded with comments criticizing the singer for apparently altering the shot to make her thighs appear slimmer.

One fan said, ‘Really @Beyonce? We all love your thick thighs. No reason to photoshop a thigh gap in there.’

Another appeared more outraged, declaring ‘I have lost ever ounce of respect for Beyoncé over this thigh gap story. She is disgraceful!!!’

We imagine the Drunk in Love singer’s legs are probably in tip-top condition after all those energetic dance moves she pulled every night on tour, but what do you think?

Does it look like Beyoncé has been busy with the cut and paste tool on her holiday snaps?
