Miami Police Union to Boycott Beyonce Concert

People are so mad at Beyoncé because of her Super Bowl performance.  The Miami Fraternal Order of Police announced that it will boycott Beyoncé’s concert in the city in April.

The singer’s music video “Formation”  made references to the Black Lives Matter movement, and her superbowl performance the dancers wore Black Panther-style berets, and they raised their fists to mimic the historic black power salute that Tommie Smith and John Carlos gave at the 1968 Olympic Games in Mexico City- and now people are mad at Beyoncé.

The police union voted to boycott her planned show at Marlins Stadium as a result of Beyonce’s halftime performance at the Super Bowl on Feb. 7.

“I salute NYPD Officer Richard Rainey, who succumbed to his injuries on February 16 [1981] from being shot by two Black Panthers, who he had pulled over in a traffic stop,” Miami FOP President Javier Ortiz said, per Miami’s ABC 10. “I also salute the dozens of law enforcement officers that have been assassinated by members of the Black Panthers.”
