Open Post: Hosted By John Oliver Confirming Beyonce Was Photoshopped Into “The Lion King” Cast Photo

July 23, 2019 / Posted by:

Although the reviews haven’t been great, the live-action The Lion King is a certified hit. More than likely because Beyonce‘s loyal stable of unstable crazies, the BeyHive, bought all the tickets and all the merchandise so far. And one of its newest members, John Oliver, is revealing the totally not-shocking truth about a cast photo from the film featuring Beyonce front and center. Apparently, after the photo was taken Beyonce was added in afterward.

John Oliver has admitted in the past that he’s a member of the BeyHive, and if he ever had the opportunity to meet Beyonce he would faint and thrash at her feet. Or what most members of the BeyHive call “Hello“. So when he was recently on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, of course Beyonce’s name came up, especially after Colbert asked Oliver about what happened during the photo shoot. Many fans had been speculating for a while that Beyonce was given the digital hologram treatment in post-production. And honestly, one look at the photo and you can kind of tell that she was either not there or let out one of those silent but deadly farts that made her co-stars move over to the left and to the right for some fresh air.

Perhaps they ran out of money to Photoshop James Earl Jones in the photo as well because he’s the one who should have been in the damn center. I guess he wasn’t there either, or he was the one taking the photo. According to BuzzFeed, during his interview with Colbert Oliver confirmed what we already knew by stating that Beyonce may have been absent, but her presence was definitely felt.

“If you look at my face, I look really intimidated. And that’s because what I’m doing is imagining that I’m about to be put into a photo with Beyonce one day. And that was nerve wracking enough”

Yes, one look at Oliver’s face and you’ll notice he has a terrified expression of joy and unworthiness, also known as the universal I Woke Up Like This morning face of most BeyHive members. So he’s already one step ahead for when he actually gets to meet Beyonce, which he’s yet to do at this point. Though he made it perfectly clear that if he had to choose between Queen Bey and that other English broad on the throne he’d much rather meet the former.

“If you had a choice between Beyonce and Queen Elizabeth II is anyone, including Queen Elizabeth II taking the second one?”

I know John is a member of the BeyHive, but the most hardcore members are now going to turn on him for having the audacity to even think that THE QUEEN (Beyonce) is comparable to that other queen.
