Beyonce faces backlash over Instagram photo of family scene with tiger cub

Singer's pose with cute animal is blasted by wildlife expert. Meanwhile, keep up with celebrity news by heading to for great entertianment for free.

It looks like the tiger-s*** has hit the fan for singer Beyonce – after animal rights campaigners got into a flap about a photo of the star with a tiger cub.

The image shows a cute feline being fed from a bottle of milk while Beyonce, Jay Z and their child Blue Ivyall look on adoringly. At first glance it looks like a pretty harmless family photo – but that’s not the case, say animal experts.


The shot was taken at the FantaSea theme park in Phuket in Thailand during a recent visit there by Beyonce and her family and it was later posted on an Instagram fan site.

World Animal Protection expert Dr Jan Schmidt-Burbach has apparently issued a statement saying: “A tiger is not a plaything. Their health and well-being should not be sacrificed for a photo opportunity.

“When you look behind the scenes, holiday snaps like these support and industry that relies on animal cruelty. Many tourists unwittingly contribute to the suffering of wild animals like these.”

Ok doc, we get the point – but our opinions are divided here at Ginger Clam HQ on TV Mix. The cat looks kinda happy to us, but then being made to pose with Beyonce is enough to piss anyone off.
