Here's Why Beyoncé's BeyHive Came for a Worker on Her Tour

He's already apologized.

Published May 13, 2016

Think you can post one small comment throwing shade at Beyoncé and get it past the BeyHive? Think again.

As reported, a crane operator hired to assist with Beyoncé’s concert in San Diego made a small remark about sabotaging her stage set-up and it resulted in a huge altercation. 

Austin Zamora was setting up lights for Bey’s show when he posted a behind-the-scenes look at the production. Someone commented saying “But make it so it collapses on her,” and instead of deleting the comment or ignoring it, Zamora made the grave mistake of replying back, “I wish it would.”

Big. Mistake.

What happened next would surprise no one, as the BeyHive immediately got involved, calling out Zamora and his family’s crane company by flooding their business line with angry phone calls and even death threats. Zamora’s mother, Kelly, was furious about the entire situation. But she was angrier with the BeyHive than with her son's actions as she defended him, saying that he didn’t mean what he said and that her company was an independent contractor with little to do directly with Beyoncé. 

While the whole situation got a little out of hand on both ends, it did result in a lengthy apology from Zamora, who definitely will be thinking twice before adding in his two cents on social media ever again.

Permanent reminder, the BeyHive don’t play.
