Beyonce's publicist failed to censor 'unflattering' photos

A PUBLICIST who tried to censor "unflattering" photos of Beyonce has seen her efforts backfire after the shots went viral.

Social content sharing site Buzzfeed published a gallery showing the "fiercest" moments of the popstar's Super Bowl performance.

It prompted an emailed complaint from a publicist named Yvette, who asked the site to take down seven of the shots she thought were "unflattering"

"I am certain you will be able to find some better photos," the email said.

Instead of complying with the request, Buzzfeed published a second gallery featuring the email and the offending photos.

"In what world are these unflattering?" it asked.

The response has been shared thousands of times on Twitter and Facebook.

Kanye West has also been caught trying to get photos removed from the internet.

The rapper's representatives asked Gawker to take down photos of him in a skirt published in December last year.
