Pop music star Beyonce sparked outrage with her recent controversial photo of her posing in front of Jesus in a painting of The Last Supper. 

A photo of the singer is embedded into a picture of the famous Christian painting with the word "Juicy" written on it, in front of Jesus' seat.

"The music industry makes its fame being outlandish," notes Ted Baer, chairman of the Christian Film and Television Commission and publisher of Movieguide

He points out that other entertainers, including Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus, began their careers with clean, family-friendly entertainment.  

"Beyonce was just following the roadmap that had been set before her," Baehr says of the singer.

Baehr, Ted (Movieguide)Beyonce's Last Supper pose came on the heels of another apology for using audio of the Challenger shuttle disaster in her song "XO."

Baehr says it was admirable that she had the courage to apologize for the offensive post on Instagram.  He hopes that shows she has more "sense and sensibility" than others.

"The good news is eventually you lose your audience by doing this," he adds.

Fans were quick to criticize Beyonce calling the post "disrespectful" and "wrong on so many levels."
