The outrage machine was in full effect following Beyoncé's Super Bowl halftime performance of "Formation," with people like noted music expert and failed 2008 presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani complaining that "this is football, not Hollywood," and alleging that "she used it as a platform to attack police."
But he wasn't alone in that thinking, and now the Miami Fraternal Order of Police has voted to boycott Bey's concerts in the city this coming April based on a similar interpretation, according to The Huffington Post.
"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," Javier Ortiz, the president of the Miami Fraternal Order of Police, Lodge #20, which represents 1,100 officers, said in a statement.
Ortiz, who said he didn't even watch the Super Bowl performance, though he did "mistakenly" see her "Formation" video while flipping through the channels, added, "We ask all law enforcement labor organizations to join our boycott across the country and to boycott all of her concerts."
However, a spokesman for the Miami Police Department suggested that, despite the boycott of Lodge #20, the concerts will be fully staffed.
"Right now the union president has his First Amendment right to say whatever he wants to say, but that doesn't always translate to reality," Maj. Delrish Moss said. "As far as we see, there's no indication that anything that is said there will translate into police officers not working the job."
This latest call for an anti-Beyoncé movement comes the same week as a Beyoncé protest in New York City, for which two people showed up.
