Beyonce Knowles has drawn much criticism for a photo she posted last week on her Instagram account, in which she is seen posing in front of a depiction of The Last Supper, the Charisma News website reports today (January 8, 2014).
The photo was taken at a juice bar in Miami, and the 32-year-old singer struck a pose directly in front of Jesus in the Andy Warhol mural of The Last Supper with camouflage.
Among those criticizing Beyonce is the American Family Association (AFA). "Is nothing sacred anymore? This is clearly an act of disrespect towards Jesus Christ, whom Beyonce covers up with her pose," AFA President Tim Wildmon said in a published statement. He added, "This had to be done intentionally."
The singer did not post a caption on the photo, and she has not released a statement regarding the controversy it caused.
