Beyonce’s Formation video really hit a nerve in the police quarters as both Tampa and Miami police have all voted in favour of all law enforcement officers boycotting Beyonce upcoming Formation tour in their cities.
According to the Huffington post, Cops believes her new song, Formation sends an anti-cop message. So they won’t be taking jobs at her concert. Javier Ortiz, president of Miami Fraternal Order of Police, which represents 1,100 officers wrote in a press release that he didn’t watch Beyonce’s performance during halftime “out of respect of our profession.”
A statement released by the Miami Fraternal Order of Police President reads;
“The fact that Beyoncé used this year’s Super Bowl to divide Americans by promoting the Black Panthers and her antipolice message shows how she does not support law enforcement. The organization urged other law enforcement agencies around the country to do the same.”
Well, we will have to wait and see how this plays out. But what is wrong in saying “Stop shooting us”? I really don’t get these guys.
