But they were left frustrated, says a commenter on Beyoncé’s post dor_gd, who points out that she only supported protesters on her charity account.
Critics also said Beyoncé turned up late to the protests.
The protests had started weeks before and she was in the second wave of celebrities showing their support.
People like Star Wars actor John Boyega, Arsenal footballer Mesut Özil and rapper Kanye West had tweeted their support more than a week before her.
By the time she tweeted, the peaceful protests had already turned bloody.
