After Beyonce's performance at the Super Bowl this past weekend twitter has been abuzz with the #BoycottBeyonce handle.

Some patrons felt that the video was an affront to police and urged viewers ahead of her halftime performance at the Super Bowl to #BoycottBeyonce for her aligning herself with the Black Lives Matters movement.

The scene which triggered it all was of a young African-American boy wearing a hoodie before a line of police officers while the words "Stop shooting us" appear on a wall.
