NEW YORK, NY - America's favorite pop star has become a favorite target of outrage for some following Beyoncé's Super Bowl halftime performance that many saw as racially charged. A planned protest of Beyoncé turned into a major bust at NFL headquarters in Manhattan, Tuesday, when, at most, three people showed up, according to New York Magazine. However, throngs of Beyoncé supporters, or rather anti-anti Beyoncé protesters, turned out for a counter demonstration.
The Beyoncé haters are called Proud Of Blues and asked supporters to show up wearing blue, in honor of police and supporting critics who say Beyoncé's halftime show went too far. The routine featured dancers dressed as Black Panther members and an "X" formation reminiscent of civil rights leader Malcolm X. Some have called it an attack on police.
Meanwhile, the Beyoncé fan group, calling themselves Black Girls Rising, wore black in support of "Bey" and the Black Lives Matter movement.
At the Grammy's Monday night, Beyoncé appeared to address the issue when she said, "Art is the unapologetic celebration of culture through self-expression."
Should Beyoncé really have to apologize? Is it not possible to support the police and want equal treatment for all races? Why does everything have to be so black and white?
