Beyoncé's fans have come to the singer's defense with regard to daughter Blue Ivy Carter joining her onstage during the Renaissance World Tour.

The 42-year-old 'Crazy In Love' hitmaker is gearing up for the release of her forthcoming film, Renaissance: A Film by Beyoncé, which will feature performances and exclusive behind-the-scenes footage of her recent world tour.

The concert - which is the artist's highest-grossing tour to date - was in support of her successful seventh studio album, Renaissance (2022), and began on May 10 in Stockholm, Sweden, and concluded on October 1, 2023, in Kansas City, Missouri.

As the movie premiered in Los Angeles, California on Saturday (November 25), The New York Times revealed in their review that the film contains a concerning segment about Blue Ivy's concert appearances that stole the show.

The publication reported that the Grammy-winning star was "dismayed" when her 11-year-old daughter read posts criticizing her "lackluster moves" after her first surprise appearance onstage in Paris back in May.

However, it delighted the 'Break My Soul' songstress that Blue Ivy - whom she shares with husband Jay-Z - was determined to prove any naysayers wrong for her future performances of 'My Power'.

"Instead of quitting, she decided to put in the work and train even harder for future stops," the outlet wrote.

Although the preteen made a positive change following the negative comments, the Beyhive expressed their disdain for those who bad-mouthed the youngster on their social media.

"Blue Ivy read the comments y'all made on her dancing with her own eyes, & STILL decided to train even harder. that's what we call a QUEEN!" one user wrote.

Another said: "The fact that adults would criticize a CHILD for dancing in front of thousands almost every night when these same adults can’t even make a doctors appt without stuttering still bewilders me."

A third chimed in: "This just annoyed ** outa me. Grown a** adults negatively judging a child who was meant to have fun…BUT THE RESILIENT CAPRICORN BLUE IS!!! so proud of this young queen! She has such a successful and powerful future ahead of her! She deserves all the love tbh."

A fourth added: "Though I want to commend her for deciding to stick to it as it seems like she’s always been interested in dancing, I truly can’t believe she saw firsthand grown weirdos STILL nitpicking everything she does. like it’s been this way since she was a baby it’s crazy."

While Blue Ivy continued making appearances at her mom's shows in Europe and America, the music superstar initially had no intention of letting her daughter perform at all.

Of the early conversations, Beyoncé recalled in the film: "She told me she was ready to perform, and I told her no," but, she eventually accepted her child's pleas.

According to Blue Ivy’s grandma, Tina Knowles-Lawson, the young girl only had "one week" to prepare for her first appearance, and after that, her confidence had soared "to the sky," per PEOPLE.

"She is 11 years old, and she had one week to prepare, and she's just getting better and better," the 69-year-old mom of two said. "So I'm the proud grandma, always."

"This is a heels family. You're trained early to walk in heels," she quipped before adding, "[Blue Ivy's] having the time of her life, and I couldn't be more proud of her because she really worked hard."

Renaissance: A Film by Beyoncé officially hits theaters on December 1.
