Sorry to interrupt your day like this, but someone has just insulted Beyoncé in a really horrendous manner, and I need to talk about it for a minute.

I'm not what you would even call a member of the Beyhive — I'm not that invested in Beyoncé at all, in fact. But what this dude just did in front of her is so utterly disgusting that I cannot remain silent.

You might need to sit down for this one. And make sure there are no men in the room.

This is Beyoncé.

Motherfucking Beyoncé.

She has 22 Grammy Awards, and that's not even the half of what she's accomplished.

This is Ed Sheeran.

He probably has way more acoustic guitars than he does Grammy Awards, which is four. Pathetic.

These two just performed together at the Global Citizen Festival in South Africa.

Because she's an icon and also respects the people she's performing for and with, Beyoncé appeared in a stunning, structural gown by London-based designer Ashi Studio.

And Sheeran wowed the audience in ... a fucking T-shirt and slouchy jeans. You know, what he's always wearing.

Just look at them onstage together. Tell me this doesn't look absolutely absurd.

When someone tells you that you are going to perform in front of the entire world next to BEYONCÉ, this is not what you wear.

The audacity men have in the wardrobe department — and every other place on earth — I cannot.

And I'm definitely not the only one who feels Sheeran's lack of sheer attempt at an outfit was not a good move.

Moreover, this strange pairing of wardrobes is the ultimate illustration of how different expectations are for men and women when it comes to appearance.

Because you know there's a reason Beyoncé didn't make a career out of singing to hundreds of thousands in jeans that don't even fit correctly. 

Spoiler alert: It's misogyny!

Everyone's allowed to have their own personal style and be comfortable and whatnot, but come the hell on.

It's Beyoncé. No one will blame you for dressing up a little.
