Beyoncé, queen of breezing through wardrobe malfunctions and delivering shade, was caught on camera giving killer side-eye to an unsuspecting man who dared to look her in the eye. Even Jay Z looked like he didn't want to be in between the two as they sat courtside at the NBA finals last week.

The photo was shared on Twitter, and it came to the attention of the victim man, Steve Cespedes. What came afterwards was even better than the accidental side-eye.

A parody of the side-eye! Who would've thought? The natural course of events would have been that Steve was incinerated or, you know, slayed. But no, apparently the photo was actually Beyoncé's idea.

"Both Beyoncé and Jay Z were beyond polite and very gracious. The pic was her idea," Steve tweeted. "I showed her the [Huffington Post] tweet, we thought it was funny, she came up with this idea."

So this is what it's like to live on the edge.
