Whenever a new photo goes up on Humans Of New York (HONY) — the now-famous photoblog run by Brandon Stanton featuring intimate portraits of strangers — we are rarely disappointed.
This girl is no exception.
Like many of those featured on HONY, she has a fascinating story to tell. But it was the reactions to her story on Facebook that caught our attention this time.
Each and every one of them is priceless.
The caption under her photo reads:
Sometimes I hate my name because it always draws attention to me, and I'm not a very social person. My family moved this year from Pennsylvania. I was so scared the first day of school that someone would notice me. I wouldn't even adjust my seat because I thought it would make a noise. One time I really had to cough, but I held it in. When the teacher started calling attendance, I got really nervous, because every time people learn my name is Beyoncé, somebody starts singing 'Single Ladies.' And some did, of course. But the second day of school wasn't too bad. Because everyone knew my name.
So you think being called Beyonce is challenging? Wait till you see what these Facebook commenters had to say.
We know we say this every time, but isn't this the greatest Humans of New York post ever?
Thank you, Internet.
