Oh no! Beyoncé was tugged off the stage during a Sao Paolo concert this weekend by an overzealous fan!

While performing “Irreplaceable” at the Morumbi Stadium in Brazil on Sunday, Queen Bey stopped to shake hands with fans at her feet at the end of the walkaway.

One man took advantage of the opportunity and grabbed her hand and pullled her off the stage and into the crowd. Security personnel quickly helped her back onstage, and the superstar didn’t even miss a beat. 

The ever-gracious Beyoncé reportedly asked her security to let the man stay in the venue and finish watching the concert. In the video posted on YouTube, the singer can be heard saying, “It’s OK. It’s all right. You just got excited.”

After the song, the purple jumpsuit-clad singer walked over to the man that pulled her off stage and shook his hand. She told him, “What’s your name? Nice to meet you. Thank you. I love you, too.”

We think she handled the situation with incredible class and grace! What do you think? Share in the comments.
