The Fraternal Order of Police is bashing Beyoncé, vowing to boycott working security at her concert when her Formation tour kicks off in April in Miami.
Members of the Miami chapter of the FOP, the national police union, voted to boycott Beyoncé’s April 26 show at Marlins Stadium, local union president, Lt. Javier Ortiz, confirmed Thursday. He called on all police officers everywhere to boycott all of her concerts on her forthcoming world tour.
The reason: She ‘”used this year’s Super Bowl to divide Americans by promoting the Black Panthers and her anti-police message,” Ortiz said in a letter announcing the boycott.
The Miami move comes after ex-New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani went on Fox News Channel after the Super Bowl to condemn Beyoncé-and-company’s half-time show — in which she and her dancer posse cavorted in black berets and bandoliers — as “outrageous” and an “attack on police officers.”
Ortiz accused Beyoncé of using her Super Bowl show to “salute” the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Black Panthers, a black-power group widely feared by police back in the day and still loathed in 2016.
