Anti-Beyoncé Protest To Happen Next Week In Response To Her Super Bowl Performance

Beyonce’s performance at the Superbowl went down a treat with fans and critics. The singer delivered a riveting performance of her new single ‘Formation’ backed by a sea of female dancers. Referencing the Black Lives Matter Movement, Malcolm X and the Black Panthers, it was also the most radical political statement from the star in her 20-year career.

 However, it turns out that not everyone was a fan of Beyonce’s newsworthy performance, with some claiming it was “anti-police” with its references to the Black Panthers. Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani also criticised Beyoncé for using the performance “as a platform to attack police officers”.

And now, the criticism has gone a step further with an anti-Beyoncé protest set to take place in New York next week, reports New York Magazine.

The event description calls her Super Bowl performance a “race-baiting stunt” and an act of “racism” and “hate speech”:

“Join us as we demonstrate on the block of the NFL Headquarters building.

Are you offended as an American that Beyoncé pulled her race-baiting stunt at the Superbowl?

Do you agree that it was a slap in the face to law enforcement?

Do you agree that the Black Panthers was/is a hate group which should not be glorified?

Come and let’s stand together. Let’s tell the NFL we don’t want hate speech & racism at the Superbowl ever again!”

The protest is scheduled to take place between 8am-4pm next week.
