Beyonce and Jay Z's eldest daughter Blue Ivy turned eight years old yesterday. And while most people wished the little girl a happy birthday, there were thousands of haters online - attacking the child.

And the person running E! News' Twitter account is being accused of being one of those people.

Last night the network tweeted out what looked like an intentional dig on Blue - by calling her an "adult".

They asked, "Can someone explain to us when Blue Ivy became an adult?"

Beyonce's fans were infuriated and immediately responded. Within minutes, E! News' Twitter account was flooded with negative comments. They eventually deleted the comment - but not before Beyonce fans did their damage to the network's reputation.

Here's the post that E! News posted on Twitter, that caused Beyonce's fans to go on the attack:

Fans of Beyoncé, 38, and Jay, 50, got another glimpse of Blue last week in photos Megan Thee Stallion posted on New Year’s Day. In one of the candids, Blue showed a gap-toothed grin having presumably lost some baby teeth.

Blue also starred in her famous mom’s July 2019 music video for “Spirit,” the Golden Globe-nominated song Beyoncé cowrote for the 2019 remake of The Lion King.

A source previously gave Us Weekly insight into Bey and Jay’s family life, which also includes their 2-year-old twins, son Sir and daughter Rumi. “Jay-Z and Beyoncé have nannies for the kids, and their assistants help out too, but they mostly try and bring the kids everywhere,” the source said in June 2019. “Blue always travels with Beyoncé and comes with her when she’s working. The twins are getting older and Beyoncé has been taking them out a little more too. … They’re a very tight-knit family and like to do everything together.”
