For her spring collection, Beyoncé has been channeling ancient Egyptian queen Nefertiti, with crop tops and hoodies featuring portraits of the singer wearing a headpiece similar to the one Nefertiti wore.

And you know what? Some Egyptians aren’t happy about it.

One person tweeted: ‘I’m all kinds of mad about Beyoncé literally selling herself as Nefertiti. My country’s history and culture has been so brutally commoditized and commercialized and exported to everyone’s satisfaction and convenience for GENERATIONS. I’m not spending a dime on her.’

Others have called her a ‘culture vulture’ and that if any other singer had done something similar, they’d be being dragged for cultural appropriation.
