Right, the gloves are off people.

Yesterday, you might remember we took a moment to celebrate Beyoncé's latest Instagram post, showing off her pregnancy bump in head-to-toe Gucci and Jay Z gently caressing her tummy at a basketball game.

However, it appears some people in the world decided to ignore the glory of Queen B's pregnancy photos and slam her visibly fuller lips.

Well, you know what, we're not having it.

You hear us? No one messes with our Queen (no, not Queen Liz) and get's away with it.

And fortunately, it appears we're not the only ones who have taken umbrage with critics who accused the 35-year-old of having had lip filler injections.

Yesterday, the singer's representative, Yvette Noel-Schure, released a strongly-worded statement regarding a story published in MediaTakeOut speculating that the pregnant superstar received lip injections.

'What do you know about the effects of pregnancy on a woman's entire body? Please tell me,' reads the statement, sent to Gossip Cop.

'Did you know that in addition to weight gain there is often a dramatic change in the blood flow in the system and increased fluid causing swelling?

'Do you know that often women's gums get swollen? Do you know that it sometimes affects our speech, our ability to chew intently and a host of other things?' she added.

Preach, girl. Preach.

Firstly, let us just say that no one should ever criticise or comment negatively about a pregnant woman's appearance. They're carrying a blummin' life form side their bellies, pipe down.

Besides, as Yvette said, swelling – be it in the face, hands, ankles and legs – is a totally normal side effect of pregnancy caused by this additional blood and fluid.

Who are we to shame a woman for undergoing these natural changes in her body?

Secondly, if Beyoncé did choose to get lip fillers, it's entirely her prerogative to do so, and no one else's business.

Again, pipe down, haters.

In a rare statement from Beyoncé's team, Noel-Schure revealed she decided to speak out about MediaTakeOut's allegations because it made her so angry.

'The sacrifice to our faces, our feet and our entire bodies is something we welcome because we bring beautiful humans into the world who will one day combat your hate and negativity.

'I stood silent during Beyonce's first pregnancy when you thought it was okay to bully her like the cowards you are, when you accused her of never being pregnant, but I simply cannot this time,' she added.

Addressing the publication's staff, she scolded them to say: 'You are the saddest individuals and picking on a pregnant lady is tantamount to possessing the coldest, despicable heart.

The sacrifice to our faces, our feet and our entire bodies is something we welcome because we bring beautiful humans into the world who will one day combat your hate and negativity.

'You need to find something else to do with your time and maybe stop by a store that has happiness on sale because you need to buy some,' she concluded.

Hear, hear.
