If you haven’t heard yet about the cop-bashing performance of Beyonce at Super Bowl 50, we’ll just say it was shameful. Performers who bring in politics during what’s supposed to be a family event should expect this type of criticism. Of course, Beyonce’s supporters will loooove this but most of America is furious with the anti-American performance given by the cop-bashing diva. Malcolm X’s Sunni Muslim family weighed in saying they ‘absolutely loved’ the tribute to their father. Malcolm X was a black muslim radical and the Black Panthers advocated violence against whites. Can we move forward already or is this such a money maker for Beyonce and other artists that they have to keep reaching back to stir the pot…BTW-Beyonce was given a police escort after the Super Bowl. Hypocrite much?
Beyonce’s Super Bowl halftime show may have been offensive to some but the singer could not be happier with her work.
‘It makes me proud,’ Beyonce told Entertainment Tonight of her performance, which included references to the Black Panther Party and Malcolm X.
‘I wanted people to feel proud and have love for themselves.’
Malcolm X’s family also revealed that they ‘absolutely loved’ her tribute to their father.
Malcolm’s daughter Ilyasah Shabazz said she loved that Beyonce’s performance was ‘making a statement [about] all the senseless killing.’
She also said that she and other family members were asked if they wanted to appear in the music video for Formation, Beyonce’s new song, but were unable to maker it to the New Orleans set.
Others were far less impressed with Beyonce’s message, including former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who ripped into the singer Monday morning while appearing on Fox & Friends.
‘This is football, not Hollywood, and I thought it was really outrageous that she used it as a platform to attack police officers who are the people who protect her and protect us, and keep us alive,’ said Giuliani.
Giuliani also said during his interview; ‘I think it was outrageous. The halftime show I thought was ridiculous anyway. I don’t know what the heck it was. A bunch of people bouncing around and all strange things. It was terrible.’
He later added; ‘You’re talking to middle America when you’re at the Super Bowl, so if you’re going to have entertainment, let’s have decent, wholesome entertainment and not use it as a platform to attack the people who put their lives at risk to save us.’
In Washington DC, members of the National Sheriffs’ Association who watched the game together turned off the television when Beyonce appeared on the halftime show, telling the Washington Examiner they were upset the NFL let the singer perform her new anthem Formation, which they consider to be anti-police.
The NSA is one of one of the largest law enforcement organizations in the country and has over 22,000 members.
