The internet is an unsafe place, folks.

Especially when you’re Kim Kardashian, who is ironically one of the most popular and most hated celebrities on the planet.

Kim Kardashian Braids Selfie

Kim can be annoying as all get-out, and sometimes she deserves the criticism she gets.

But we’re not sure why she’s being targeted in the latest campaign by Beyonce fans.

The shade comes in the form of a meme that juxtaposes photos of both women wearing braids in their hair.

The first, an image used from Beyonce’s visual album "Lemonade," which dropped last week to rave reviews from fans.

The second, a pic of Kim with the words "Tap Water" written across the front.

Witty, okay, but why is the Beyhive so mad at Kim?

Who knows? It seems that these days, the busy Beys are set off by nearly anything.

They went hard on Rachel Roy earlier this week after they suspected that she was "Becky," Jay Z’s alleged mistress.

The swarm also went after Rachael Ray, Rita Ora, Iggy Azalea, Wendy Williams, and finally, the cheater Jay Z himself.

So why are they now coming down on Kim?

It could be because Kim has been longtime friends with Rachel, which means the selfie queen is somehow guilty by association.

(It should be noted that Kim has not commented on Beyonce, Rachel or the entire "Becky" situation since the cheating allegations came to light.)

Or it’s possible that Bey fans are dissing Kim for cultural appropriation by styling her hair in boxer braids, as "Lemonade" has been hailed as an ode to strong black women.

Whatever the case, we think it’s time for the Beyhive to put their stingers away. 

This is one rare instance when Kim really didn’t ask for any of this.
