RnB singer Keisha Cole is feeling the repercussions since she expressed her disapproval of Beyonce's latest single "Bow Down/I Been On." Beyonce's fans, collectively known as the BeyHive, have attacked Cole for criticizing the superstar via Twitter.

The rift began after Beyonce released her new track which reveals an angry and arrogant side to the diva where she sings and raps about being a top selling entertainer and commands her completion--we're still trying to figure out exactly who that may be--to "bow down" and hail the queen.
After hearing the gritty, chopped-and-screwed song mix, Cole voiced her discontent via Twitter on Monday.
"Can't stand when people all self righteous when it's convenient it makes them look good," she wrote, adding, "But can still talk sh-t when convenient 2 FOH."
The RnB singer also pointed out the underlying hypocrisy in the record in which Beyonce refers to other women as inferior b----es, a far cry from her usual women empowerment themed songs like "[Girls] Run The World" and "Single Ladies."
"First 'Women need to Stick together' now b-tches better Bow," she continued. "Smh. But it's all G! Chicks stay shooting the sh-t..." tweeted Cole.
As a result, the Beyhived buzzed with attacks.
"Keyshia Cole and Chris Brown are two artists that really shouldn't have twitter accounts," one fan wrote.
"If @KeyshiaCole put as much energy in her struggle music as she did twitter beefing she would be as successful as Beyon...Nvm," another tweeted.
Cole didn't back down from her remarks and even responded to a couple of direct attacks tweeting, "Never said there was any. IM not in denial... God Bless RT @_BEYHive: @KeyshiaCole f--k yo unity," and "How am i hating? no Mamm or sir. whatever u may be. No H8 RT @GothamsKnight_: damn @KeyshiaCole hating on everybody," she posted.
