Beyonce's 'Lemonade' Emmy Loss Huge Disappointment for Fans, Twitter Reacts
Beyonce fans are not happy with last night's Lemonade Emmy loss to a variety series that they have deemed unworthy. The Bey Hive creatively reacted to the let down with their unapologetic Twitter memes, GIFs and comments.
Beyonce Knowles has some pretty crafty, creative and witty fans who know how to convey their feelings of disappointment and betrayal from last night's Emmy snub in 140 characters or less and they proved it all over Twitter.
This Twitter user figured out a way to vent without exceeding the character limit and even snuck in multiple question marks to fully validate his point.
GREASE FUCKING LIVE??????

Though the words ‘this is some bull-sh*t” were never actually posted by fans, the overall message was pretty much the same.
"What just happened" was the question on the minds of just about every Beyonce loving, Lemonade supporting, Emmy watching fan, when Grease: Live won the Emmy for Outstanding Directing for a Variety Special, beating out Knowles and director Kahlil Joseph, as reported by US.
The music series even beat other great projects and directors like Louis J. Horvitz for the 58th Annual Grammy Awards; Beth McCarthy-Miller for Adele Live in New York City, Chris Rock for HBO's Amy Schumer: Live at the Apollo, and Glenn Weiss, director for The Kennedy Center Honors.
Not all of Twitter universe posted against the big win for the 2016 Fox TV special.
This user said it was well deserved.
Grease totally deserved to win. Those sets. The whole huge thing it pulled off and made look easy. #Emmys

And he agreed.
I also think Tommy Kail & Alex Rudzinksi totally deserved the Emmy for GREASE LIVE. An incredible achievement. — devin faraci (@devincf) September 19, 2016
