Police Plan On Boycotting An Upcoming Beyoncé Concert
If you ask me, Beyoncé totally crushed her halftime performance at the Super Bowl.
It was badass and fierce AF. It showed Beyoncé's unapologetic blackness and pride in being a feminist.
However, not everyone was thrilled with the performance.
Many people denounced Bey's new song "Formation" and the music video accompanying it, so it only enraged people (WHITE OLD MEN?) more to see her sing the anthem live.
There was a lot of criticism and anger over the performance, but the backlash didn't stop there.
Apparently, one chapter of the Fraternal Order of Police wants all security officers to boycott a concert for her upcoming "Formation" tour in April.
In an open letter by a local union president, it was confirmed members of the FOP in the Miami chapter voted in favor of the boycott and urged all police officers to boycott all her concerts along the tour.
Lt. Javier Ortiz said the reason was Beyoncé "used this year's Super Bowl to divide Americans by promoting the Black Panthers and her anti-police message."
Ortiz belives Beyoncé used her Super Bowl show as a tribute to the Black Panthers, a black organization aimed at challenging police brutality.
This group is, apparently, still loathed and feared by police today.
Beyoncé has yet to respond.
