One of the many, many, many, many, many people who were blown away by Beyoncé's performance was model Cara Delevingne, who posted a message full of praise on her Instagram.

People in the comments immediately began accusing Cara of being hypocritical for praising Beyoncé's performance when she herself claimed to be boycotting the festival after its owner was accused of homophobia.

In 2016, the Washington Post reported that Philip Anschutz, whose company Anschutz Entertainment Group owns the festival, had donated money to anti-LGBT groups. Anschutz later released a statement saying he was unaware of any anti-LGBT work done by the organisations and had stopped any financial contributions.


After the backlash, Cara posted to her Instagram story defending herself, saying she still refuses to go to the festival but won't let that stop her loving Beyoncé.

"I will let nothing get in the way of me showing my love or hate for something," she continued. "Don't let anyone come between you and your truth."
