-- Ever since images from Taylor Swift's forthcoming music video for "Look What You Made Me Do" were released Friday, Beyoncé's fans have been crying foul.
The pop star released her dark new song, which sings of a woman getting back at an old friend or lover, Thursday night. She then followed that up by teasing photos from the Joseph Kahn-directed video on Friday's "Good Morning America."
The Beyhive, as they're lovingly known, took issue with one particular teaser image, showing Swift, 27, wearing all black, backed by fierce-looking background dancers.
They felt the shot, inside a Victorian-style home, was similar to Beyoncé's "Formation" video, in which she at one point also wears all black in a plantation-style home.
