Beyonce and Jay-Z are the latest victims of a photoshop prank which has already targeted several celebrities including Rihanna, Kanye West and the Kardashians.
A new photograph, which immediately went viral on social networking site Twitter, shows the normally glamorous Hollywood couple in an unflattering light which has led to assumptions that it may have been photoshopped, according to Sandra Rose.com.
The alleged old school photograph features a nerdy-looking Jay-Z, 42, who is renowned for his bad boy image, and the hip-hop mogul is wearing reading glasses with thick lenses along with professional attire. His wife Beyonce, 30, happily poses behind him without any makeup and sporting a dull haircut.
Fans of the Grammy award-winning artists flocked to Twitter where they weighed in on the bizarre photograph.
"OMG so nerdy...Hideous!" Clara M tweeted.
"Exclusive Iconic New Jay-Z and Beyonce Family Photo. Truly embodies their status as Modern Royalty," Alex Haldi tweeted.
"They're unrecognizable...this can't be a real pic lol," Shane tweeted.
The photograph comes days after a heavily photoshopped picture of their friend Kanye West, 34, and his girlfriend Kim Kardashian, 31, who were altered to look overweight, also went viral on Twitter.
"A hilarious Instagram pic of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian as fat people," Milah tweeted.
"This picture killed it..Imagine Kanye West&Kim Kardashian 15years from Now..all fat and ish," someone with the username Creme De La Creme tweeted.
Rihanna, 25, along with Khloe Kardashian, 28, and Kourtney Kardashian 32, were each made to look at least 10 to15 years older in another round of unflattering celebrity photos.
Nicki Minaj, 30, was also artificially aged in her altered photograph and the rapper is made to appear as though she has short and curly hair which is a far cry from her usual long blonde hair extensions.
