In a recent photo posted by the pop star on her official website, Beyoncé’s 5-year-old daughter is believed to be hidden. The photo shows Beyoncé serving looks, while in the corner behind a security guard, Blue Ivy’s gold sneakers are the only thing visible of the eldest Carter child. Her fans voiced their concern about Beyoncé’s choice on Twitter.
A fansite tweeted, “She told Blue to stand in the corner so she could take these pics.” The post quickly racked up nearly 28,000 likes and comments.

While accompanying her husband, Jay-Z, on tour, the mother of three shared a series of snaps of the Carter family. The 36-year-old showed off her curves in wide-leg yellow pants and a bright orange trench.
This particular photo struck a chord with her many followers because Blue Ivy is (barely) seen standing in the elevator corner behind a security guard while her mom poses for the camera.
“What a horrible, selfish mother. Only cares about vanity and looking good for social media. If she was proud of her daughter she would have shown her,” wrote a commenter.

While some are shaming the Grammy Award winner, others defended her. Another commenter wrote, “Kids are just coolness antidote. That’s why mine aren’t allowed to talk to me in public either.”

Other’s reminisced about the time Kim Kardashian cropped her daughter, North West, out of a 2014 selfie, causing public uproar.
A fan wrote, “I love how when Kim K cropped her daughter out of a pic all of you were calling her a bad mom and when Beyonce ‘ignores’ her daughter to take a fashion pic you’re all praising, having fun and loving the attitude.”

Here is that infamous selfie:
Kardashian decided to speak out on the matter. She took to Twitter and wrote, “Wait is this really news that I posted a selfie & cropped my daughter out? LOL,” and added, “Her eyes were closed and I was feeling my look! Can I live?!?!”
Her eyes were closed and I was feeling my look! Can I live?!?!

Maybe Beyoncé was also simply “feeling her look.”
