Only three people attended the anti-Beyoncé rally
An anti-Beyoncé rally which was held outside the NFL headquarters only managed to pull in three people for support. The rally came after Beyoncé's 'controversial’ performance at the SuperBowl where she and her dancers paid tribute, by wearing similar outfits, to the Black Panthers, a black radical, political group which fought for black rights from the 60’s-80’s.
The protest was held to condemn Beyoncé and her performance as it was apparently a slap in the face to US officers and the police force. A mass invitation was given to the public to rally against the performance which read,
"Are you offended as an American that Beyonce pulled her race-baiting stunt at the Super Bowl?
"Do you agree that the Black Panthers was/is a hate group which should not be glorified? Come and let's stand together.
"Let's tell the NFL we don't want hate speech & racism at the Super Bowl ever again."
It had little effect however as only three people appeared to protest, which was quickly shut down by pro- Beyoncé supporters, saying she is defending black rights and culture during black history month, with protestors holding signs which said: Pro-Black is not Anti-White, along with the names of black civilians shot by white officers in the past year.
Beyoncé’s latest video was also called out for being controversial as it has clear anti-police messages such as ‘Stop shooting us’ graffiti on a wall behind a black child, and was also filmed in New Orleans, one of the fastest growing ‘black cities’ in the US whilst slavery was still acceptable.
