Beyonce honored the Black Panthers, some are calling for a boycott and peep the game's ratings!
🏈 Some are calling for a boycott of Beyonce's performance because of the message the "Formation" video sends to the police. The vid features a wall that reads "stop shooting us," a cop car submerged underwater and a kid dancing in front of cops dressed in riot gear.
🏈 Former mayor Rudy Giuliani slammed Beyonce's message to the police. "I think it was outrageous," Giuliani said on Fox News Monday. "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 adds, "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," he said. "And what we should be doing in the African-American community, and all communities, is build up respect for police officers. And focus on the fact that when something does go wrong, okay. We'll work on that. But the vast majority of police officers risk their lives to keep us safe."
