A pastor has recently spoken out to the masses, telling her followers that she believes Beyonce is a "witch."

According to Tiphani Montgomery, who recently gave a speech at a Covered By God event, Queen Bey has been cracking out those spells and potions and bewitching people into following her.

The self-proclaimed "prophetess" warned her own followers about the dangers of getting hooked by the Grammy-award-winning artist, even going on to slam Christians that do.

"Any of you who are going to Beyoncé's concert I rebuke you in the name of Jesus, how dare you call yourself a Christian," she said during a clip from the event that was posted to TikTok on February 12th.

"I don't care what pastor you got who's OK with it, I don't care what pastor you got that think it's cool, I don't care what pastor you got that sing along to the songs because they want some clout."

The pastor from North Carolina cranked it up a notch, suggesting that Beyonce is a "witch" and her followers are all part of a "coven."

"When a witch has a coven it's normally a small thing. Witch's covens are normally three to seven people," she continued. "When it becomes thousands it's called a hive. Y'all a part of that lady Beyhive? And you call yourself a Christian? May the dealings of the Lord come upon you."

The video has since been viewed over 20,000 times on TikTok and a further 30,000 times on Instagram, earning Montgomery some new fans, along with some new haters too.

"And she wasn’t afraid to admit that she was once a Beyoncé fan, but when you receive the Holy Spirit, you are able to test spirits," wrote one user, who loved the pastor's honesty when addressing the topic.

"This is how believers should be taken a stand but most of us are quiet! We have been quiet long enough!", another added.

A third compared Montgomery to John the Baptist writing: "This woman is a modern day John the Baptist. Speaking the truth no matter what the masses think or feel."

"I had no idea the 'B hive' had a meaning to it. Damn it makes sense now."

But not everyone was as supportive of her views.

"Hopefully this frees up a bunch of tickets," joked one user, who clearly is a Beyonce fan.

"But, didn’t you... nevermind."

"Say it to her face then," challenged another fan.

"I wonder what happened. Back in 2014 when she went it was okay but now that it's disco music it’s witchery?", commented another user after Tiphani's other critics labeled her a "hypocrite" after unearthing old deleted tweets where she declared herself to be a fan of Beyonce, and even said she attended the singer's shows, as per the Daily Mail.

"Am I the only one addicted to Beyonce's song: Why don't u love me??? #nowplaying It again smh," she tweeted in 2010.

Then in 2014, she also tweeted: "Got a chance to catch the Jay Z and Beyonce concert and it was AMAZING!!!"

However, the pastor did eventually address the issue, stating that she was a former fan before she found God.

"I publicly came against and denounced their god baalyonce (sic) so they found these tweets from 2010, 2011, 2014. But I had just did a YouTube the night before saying I was the BIGGEST jay z and baalyonce (sic) fan… until I got saved in my shower in August 2015."

It seems as though those vocal fans weren't the only ones that saw the video, as former Destiny's Child member and long-term friend of Beyonce, Michelle Williams, also decided to address the issue via her official Instagram account.

"It also looks like I am entering the chat," Williams started. "I am just watching a lot going on, things that are being said, specifically about entertainers, specifically about entertainers that I even have relationships with, entertainers that I know off the stage."

She continued: "I just wish we would pray as publicly for entertainers as we rebuke them and damn their soul to hell. I know it ain't my calling mission to damn entertainers to hell and to say that they would drop dead. The devil is a lie."

Williams is a devout Christian and has often spoken out about her faith, but clearly, she wasn't a fan of Montgomery's recent preaching.
