Beyonce took to her Instagram page on Dec. 30, 2013 and posted a photo of herself posing in front of a piece of art work that looks like Leonardo DaVinci’s painting “The Last Supper,” according to ABC News.

What has drawn both criticism and support from fans is that Beyonce, 32, appears to be sitting in the middle of the table in the spot that Jesus occupies in the iconic piece of artwork.

The singer is wearing a tight lime green skirt and a yellow bustier in the photo.

ABC reports that instead of DaVinci’s “Last Supper,” Beyonce is actually sitting on the counter of Miami’s Jugofresh juice bar in front of Andy Warhol’s mural of “The Last Supper.”

Nevertheless, the image has raised ire in some fans, who have commented on the Instagram photo writing, “Bee… You should know better. Smh. Shame on you,” and “Ever heard of the movie ‘Eyes Wide Shut.’ Anyone who doesn’t see the offense that saturated this picture is living with ignorance to the world of evil that they live in. Jesus is Lord. Kanye, JZ, Beyonce, all of them will one day be bowing and confessing with their tongue the same.”

Several fans, however, supported Beyonce and her pose, writing, “Stop bit***** people it’s a f*** picture,” and “Ya’ll acting so offended. You guys don’t even go to church.”

And one fan simply posed the question, “Weird. Why would she put herself in place of God?”

As ABC notes, Beyonce did not caption the photo, so “it’s not clear what the singer’s intentions were” when she posted the image.
