Last night (May 1), Taylor Swift performed her new song, “Me!” during the 2019 Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas.

Apparently, some of Beyonce’s fans took issue with it, stating that she bit off of Beyonce’s 2018 historical Coachella performance.

A marching band and drum line led Swift onto the stage before she performed with Panic! At The Disco’s Brendon Urie, which is similar to Swift’s video for the new track.

“I don’t know if y’all are seeing this but Taylor Swift is gentrifying Beyonce’s Coachella performance right now,” wrote one Twitter user.

Although the Beyhive took issue with Swift’s performance the Swifties didn’t think that Swift was copying the “I Been On” singer. “Taylor Swift using a marching band is not “copying Beyonce” lmao. Y’all are REACHING,” one Taylor Swift fan wrote.

This is not the first time that the Beyhive has accused Swift of copying Yonce. When it comes to the Beyhive and the Swifties, who’s side are you on?
