Don’t mess with the Beyhive! A Beyoncé concertgoer freaked out when he saw a woman playing Pokémon Go at the singer’s concert at Stade de France on Thursday, July 21.
While the “Formation” singer, 34, was on stage, one female attendee, who was right next to the main catwalk, was spotted playing the viral mobile game on her iPhone, angering a male fan seated behind her.
“This bitch is playing Pokémon when Beyoncé’s singing! F–king Pokémon!” the irate Beyhive member shouted in a video posted on his Instagram account. He captioned the post: “She’s lucky Solange never saw her.”
As the fan panned his camera across the Paris-area stadium, which seats more than 81,000 people, he quipped, “Look at where she is. Look at where she is! She’s next to the stage. This is the stage, [and] the bitch is playing Pokémon!”
Seconds later, Beyoncé — who was performing her 2003 single “Me, Myself and I” — walked down the catwalk, turning the upset fan’s frown upside down as she reached out and touched his hand with a big smile on her face.
“Side note I’m never showering again,” he wrote alongside the Instagram video, which has since accumulated more than 33,000 views.
Queen Bey’s French fans aren’t the only ones glued to Pokémon Go. Two days after the “Drunk In Love” songstress’ concert, Rihanna gave fans a friendly reminder to put their phones away during her Anti World Tour stop in Lille, France.
“I don’t want to see you texting your boyfriends or your girlfriends,” she warned audience members on Saturday, July 23. “I don’t want to see you catching any Pokémons up in this bitch.”
Since the location-based smartphone game launched earlier this month, countless bizarre incidents have occurred. One Pokémon Go player discovered a dead body, others took part in a stampede at NYC’s Central Park and dozens have fallen victim to armed robberies after being lured to secluded locations.
