Grand Canyon Visitors Tossed Out Without Notice So Beyonce Could Helicopter In
Beyonce ruined vacations that had been planned for months.
Some visitors at the Grand Canyon got the Hollywood treatment (and not in a nice way) when Beyonce showed up to film a music video. The campers who had reservations at Havasu Falls were booted and their vacation plans were cut short because the A-lister felt her music video was more important than the trips they had planned for months.
These tourists paid hundreds of dollars to see the waterfall, but that didn’t mean much to Beyonce and her Hollywood entourage who were there to film a video for The Lion King. Access to Havasu Falls is extremely limited. These folks had planned their trips well in advance and had permission to be there, but Beyonce’s trip trumped theirs as the star and her young daughter helicoptered into the spot.
Beyonce Ruined Their Vacations
Park rangers sent the visitors on their way in anticipation of the self-proclaimed “Queen’s” visit with her daughter Blue Ivy. Multiple outlets and Twitter users claim these people, whose vacations were disrupted for Beyonce’s music video, have not been compensated.
A friend of mine and his kids had paid to be there for those three days into see the waterfall for those three days they didn’t pay to stream it why would day furthermore Beyoncé was there with her daughter and nobody can get into that site nobody was compensated for anything

One of the displaced Grand Canyon tourists waited over a year for passes for the Falls from the Havasupai tribe, which issues only 300 passes for each day. She also claimed the Beyonce never went to the village to thank the Havasupai people.
Was here for this. Disappointing they blocked the only trail to the waterfalls and we leave today. We waited over a year for passes. Bey didn’t even come into the village and thank the Havasupai people. @tmz #noloveforthenatives #nativeland

Some are trying to deflect blame from the mega-wealthy singer by saying the Havasupai tribe gave her permission. With so many people displaced without notice, destroying the vacation plans they had for months or longer, it’s hard to imagine this being a good look for Beyonce.

This whole debacle is Hollywood’s entitlement in a nutshell. They do what they want without concern for average people. Celebrities generally live by their own set of rules without much concern as to how they affect others. That’s exactly what Beyonce did at the Grand Canyon.
