The Hive Drags 'ANTI'
The Bey Hive had a field day with Rihanna's disappointing first-week sales.

Throwing shade at Beyonce is the worst career move you can make. (Just ask formerly popular R&B divas Keri Hilson and Keyshia Cole). However, that didn’t stop Rihanna liking a tweet that mocks the chart performance of Queen Bey’s “Formation” this morning (March 1). “The fact that [ANTI album track] ‘Desperado’ is HIGHER on the Bubbling under chart than a single performed to a global audience,” read the messy missive.

If RiRi thought she could throw a little and then just carry on like nothing happened, she was mistaken. Before you could bring up ANTI‘s 460 copy first-week sales tally, The Hive had congregated in her mentions. Which resulted in a heated, hilarious and currently still ongoing Twitter war with The Navy. For a taste of the ensuing social media bloodbath, check out a selection of tweets below.
