Anti-Beyonce Rally Planned For Next Week at NFL Headquarters

Controversy continues to swirl around Beyonce’s Super Bowl halftime show performance.

The pop superstar is being accused of using her performance to attack police officers.

“I think it was outrageous that she used it as a platform to attack police officers, who are the people who protect her and protect us,” former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani told CBS2’s Dick Brennan.

Beyonce and her dancers were wearing leather and black berets, which was apparently a nod to the Black Panthers movement.

One dance formation seemed to acknowledge Malcolm X, and other dancers had fists in the air, which was reminiscent of the black power salutes of the 1960s and 70s.

Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., told CBS2 that the NFL should have canceled her appearance.

“I found the entire show objectionable. It was extolling the Black Panthers who were a terrorist organization, killing police officers in the 60s and 70s,” King said.

A protest is even being held against Beyonce next week outside NFL’s headquarters in New York.
