Beyonce Banned From Pyramids In Egypt For Being “Rude”
According to Hawass’ interview with The Independent newspaper, Beyonce was tardy to a scheduled tour of ancient Egyptian pyramid sites and did not acknowledge or apologize for her tardiness:
She said she would come at 3pm but she came late. I said ‘You have to say I’m sorry I’m late’. But she didn’t open her mouth

I brought a photographer and she also had a photographer and a guard. When my photographer started to shoot, he said ‘No, Stop! I am the one who says yes or no, not you.’ I said ‘In that case since you almost hit my photographer and you are not polite — out! I am not giving you the privilege of having you on my tour.’ I said Beyoncé was stupid and I left
