Was Beyonce really throwing daggers at a Cleveland fan with her eyes during the June 16 NBA Finals game? The epic side-eye photo broke the internet, and the guy at the center of it all is revealing the truth behind the insane pic.
Beyonce, 34, is the queen of side-eyeing, everyone knows that. Well, she upped her side-eye game during Game 6 of the NBA Finals on June 16, and the pic going around makes it look like Bey is throwing so much shade at a Cleveland fan. But is that really what happened? The fan is now explaining everything, including whether or not Beyonce’s side-eye was justified.
“Both Beyoncé and Jay Z were beyond polite and very gracious,” Steve Cespedes, the man at the receiving end of Bey’s side-eye, tweeted on June 17. Beyonce’s sneaky glance went viral all over the internet, and many believed she was throwing shade at Steve for some reason.
Huffington Post tweeted the amazing photo and captioned it, “Never look Beyonce in the eyes, you fool.” Well, once Steve caught wind of the viral pic, he just had to respond in the best way possible.

Steve responded to the tweet with his own photo with Beyonce. In the pic, Bey is totally staring him down. He tweeted, “Who is looking at who now.” He later revealed that the funny picture was Beyonce’s idea!
“I showed her the huffing ton [sic] post tweet, we thought it was funny, she came up with this idea,” he told a fan on Twitter.
Can you imagine if the Beyonce asked to take a picture with you? Steve is one lucky guy — in more ways than one. Not only did he become the center of a side-eye media frenzy, he got to sit beside Bey and Jay at the game! Beyonce looked absolutely stunning in a royal blue suit, while Jay was super casual in all black. Steve’s totally a part of Jayonce’s squad now.
