"Unflattering" Beyonce photos from the Super Bowl 2013 halftime show have been leaked after the singer's publicist requested Buzzfeed to take them down, Daily Mail reports Feb. 8. The images that the publicist "respectfully change" on the site, are not censored. In the photos, Beyonce is shown in various dance positions on-stage in New Orleans with her face contorted in many of the pictures.
Some photos show Beyonce Photoshopped into a "She-Hulk" or a zombie -- among other animated characters. Reddit and other social media users went all out in making the superstar look even more unflattering. In a number of the photos, Beyonce has a mad look on her face or is in an awkward stance.

The images were transformed into something known as the "Streisand Effect." Beyonce's photos were posted on a page titled "The 33 Fiercest Moments from Beyonce's Halftime Show."
Beyonce's publicist had no idea she was going to get exactly the opposite result of what she requested from Buzzfeed. Now it's become a real nightmare. It's doubtful Beyonce's life will be too impacted by this, however.
