So Beyonce shared a post of herself enjoying a glass of wine while out on a totally normal, relatable, and well-deserved date with her hubby, and snapped a pic while she was out. And that seems to make mum-shamers to lose their cool. But wait?
Seems the beef is that a breastfeeding mother needs to watch what goes into her body. Well, that may be right but who has the right to judge? For c’mon every baby, as well as every breastfeeding situation is different. As one commentator puts it: “If Beyoncé is having a glass of wine a month or so after giving birth, you can trust that the Literal Goddess Of The Universe knows what she’s doing and has her sh*t together.” And very right she was.
Still, haters always gonna hate. One Intagram commenter wrote, “This is messed up. #NotImpressed,” and another said, “You wrong for this Bey.”
Folks at twitterville also weighed on

Just called my friend who lives under a rock to let her know that Beyonce and her tiddies are drinking wine on instagram

Expectedly some members of the Beyhive were there to defend the queen
@larzipanny: “It is insane for slamming a woman for having a glass of wine if she breast feeds. One unit of alcohol is out of your breast milk within two hrs. One glass of wine is not a crime lol! Chill out! You do you B.”
@lindseydjeter: “I don’t care what people have to say this is 2017 they got strip to where you can check you breast milk pump and dump. The queen knows what’s she’s doing. She will never harm he babies. There’s nothing wrong with a mother having a sip of wine to enjoy a nice dinner with her husband. After carrying twins and having an extra stay with them in the hospital deserves a little mommy time to be pampered. So if you are her true fan you wouldn’t have all this stupid, angry and negative things to say because she’s enjoying a little wine.”
So all those finger pointers who think that Beyonce was just about to accidentally get her babies drunk should go direct their shaming tongues/hands elsewhere. Queen Bey is on top of things and can do as she well pleased.
