People are asking Beyoncé to take her Ivy Park line out of Topshop and end her commercial partnership with the company amid claims surrounding owner Philip Green.

The 66-year-old chairman of Arcadia Group was named as the subject of a legal case by ex-Northern Ireland secretary Lord Hain last Saturday. He is accused of sexual harassment, bullying and racial abuse.

Now Beyoncé is being pressured by social media users to distance herself from the retailer.

The international singer, actress and businesswoman launched her Ivy Park range as a joint venture with Topshop in 2016, and the newest AW18 line is currently stocked online and in-store. It is also available in Selfridges, ASOS, JD Sports and Voisins.

One user on Twitter suggested Beyoncé should ‘cancel Ivy Park’, while another suggested Beyoncé would not be happy with pictures of her together with Philip being circulated as part of the scandal.

However, another user pointed out Philip has not been convicted of any crime, and therefore should not be considered guilty without proof.

Yahoo UK has contacted the Topshop press office for further comment.
