Miami Cops Plan To Boycott Beyoncé’s Upcoming Formation Tour
Beyoncé has picked up a new batch of haters after her Super Bowl 50 halftime performance.
The boys in blue are none-too-happy with Bey and after this morning’s news that police in Tampa are planning to boycott her Formation Tour, we now see that other misguided cops are following suit according to HuffingtonPost
A police union in Miami voted in favor of all law enforcement officers boycotting Beyonce’s April concert in the city, claiming the singer promoted an anti-police message in her new music video and during her performance at the Super Bowl halftime show.
Javier Ortiz, president of Miami Fraternal Order of Police, Lodge #20, which represents 1,100 officers, wrote in a press release that he didn’t watch Beyoncé’s performance during halftime “out of respect for our profession.” The performance saluted the 50th anniversary of the Black Panthers and has been criticized by some as anti-police.
“The Miami Fraternal Order of Police has voted to have all law enforcement officers boycott Beyoncé’s concert which is being held at the Miami Marlins Stadium on Wednesday, April 26, 2016,” Ortiz said in a statement. “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.
They can boycott all they want, it’s still eff them and it’s STILL #BlackLivesMatter!
Besides, what if ISIS shows up to the Beyoncé concert?? Bet they punk azzes show up then…
