An "unflattering" picture of Beyoncé performing at the Super Bowl's halftime show has transformed into a fully-fledged meme. After Beyoncé's publicist emailed Buzzfeed earlier this week to ask that the site "respectfully change" several images of her client to "some better photos" from the halftime show, her attempt backfired in epic proportions.
Buzzfeed published the email, and in the Internet phenomenon known as the Streisand Effect, one image in particular circulated so virulently it became an instant meme.

Since the email became public on Monday, internet users have been trying to come up with ways to make Beyoncé's "unflattering" facial expressions even more unflattering. So far, the singer has been turned into a bloody zombie, a "She Hulk", Conan's wife, and an Olympic weightlifter.
