Twitter is going 50 shades of crazy after surveillance camera footage from a New York City elevator became public on Monday.
On the footage: elevator door opens. Enter Jay-Z, Beyoncé and Solange (and some less famous bodyguard who is probably not getting his fair share of Twitter foreplay). Elevator door closes. The wrath and fury in Solange is triggered. She then proceeds to open a serious can of whip-ass on hip-hop’s finest. Beyoncé is in the corner, or more like a fly in the wall corner, which had observers of the footage everywhere shocked, asking: “How is she letting this happen?” Or, “Why’s she keeping up appearances?”
It doesn’t take a genius to figure out what happened next (although it might for Beyoncé). As no one actually knows the details of the incident, Twitter decided to fill in all the gaps for us. In meme form because is there any other?
Let’s take a look at the top nine memes this altercation has afforded us. Thank you to all parties involved, including what was clearly the Madame Tussaud’s version of Beyoncé, who did nothing in the elevator.
