But Twitter also brought out its knives and started critiquing the photo. The loudest snark? “Did she get that picture taken at J.C. Penney?”
Then - for the win — J.C. Penney’s social media folks sounded off, retweeting some of the harshest critiques with comments of their own.
Beyoncé followed up the announcement by posting an entire pregnancy photo album, called “I Have Three Hearts,” to her website, Beyonce.com.
