Photo of Beyonce Posing in Front of Jesus Christ in "Last Supper" Painting Sparks Controversy

Again, we say to Beyonce that she needs to check herself and make a visit to her home church for truly Jay-Z is causing her to lose her righteous mind as now she blasphemes Jesus Christ by posing in front of Jesus in Last Supper photo. Is this another good-girl/bad-boy scenario -- yet another Whitney Houston/Bobby Brown situation? (And this comes after having to apologize for using audio from Challenger disaster in song.) Hours after apologising for using audio from the fatal Challenger mission for her song XO, Beyonce may be stirring up a new controversy with a quasi-religious Instagram snap posted on Monday.

In the photo, the pop superstar poses in front of a modern take on The Last Supper, painted by Leonardo DaVinci in the late 1490s that depicted Jesus's last meal with his disciples before his crucifixion.

Bey is sitting in front of the Messiah's spot in the middle of the table, wearing a lime green mini-skirt and revealing yellow bustiere with skinny straps and orange edging.

The 32-year-old did not add a caption to the snap leaving fans to conjecture on the meaning. 

One posted: '__edenk87__ She's over being Queen Bey! I think she goin for Beysus!!! #notcool! I ain't feeling this shot... @ezwihapi.'

But others just enjoyed the image without worrying about any possible connotations.

Fresh controversy: Beyonce caused consternation among her fans by posting a modern take on The Last Supper on Monday, the same day she apologized for using Challenger disaster audio on her XO video 

Original genius: Leonardo da Vinci's famous portrait depicts Jesus and his disciples at their last supper before his crucifixion 

The flurry of photos came after Beyonce apologised for sampling audio from the 1986 Challenger disaster when the rocket broke apart soon after take off, killing the seven astronauts on board.

She drew widespread criticism for using the clip for the video for XO, in which a NASA official can be heard saying: 'Flight controllers here looking very carefully at the situation. Obviously a major malfunction,' as wreckage fell to earth on live TV.

ABC News reported 'former and current NASA astronauts, employees and Challenger family members argue that using it in a pop song mocks the crew's sacrifice and opens fresh wounds.'

In a statement to ABC News, Beyonce said: 'The song XO was recorded with the sincerest intention to help heal those who have lost loved ones.'

The Halo singer added the reference should 'remind us that unexpected things happen,' so people should 'love and appreciate every minute that you have with those who mean the most to you.'

She also said, 'My heart goes out to the families of those lost in the Challenger disaster.'

Her statement ended with: 'The songwriters included the audio in tribute to the unselfish work of the Challenger crew with hope that they will never be forgotten.'
