They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, but that doesn't seem to be the case here.

Here's what happened when Beyoncé's Beyhive slammed a website for claiming that she was copying Kylie Jenner's makeup tips.

Styleite ran a post sharing Bey's latest series of sexy selfies and titled it, "Beyoncé Tries Kylie Jenner's Lips," which didn't sit well with the Grammy winner's devotees.

After receiving a slew of comments on social media about the controversial post, the site came forward with a lengthy response to quell both Bey and her peeps.

"We have had a lot of criticism about this post on Twitter due to legitimate concerns about the erasure of black women's features. We recently posted a couple of articles emphasizing this exact point, and highlighting the hypocrisy of society deeming certain things to be more acceptable on white women," their statement began.

"Our intention with this post was purely to point out that Beyoncé has obviously overlined her lips, which she has done in the past. We have updated the post to emphasize that 'Kylie Jenner lips' is a sarcastic reference to makeup only, and as much a dig at Kylie as it is a post about Beyoncé."

Hannah Ongley, the author of the story, told BuzzFeed News that the issue at hand was "one I care deeply about so I updated [the article] to ensure that there was clarity and no misunderstanding."
