Beyonce 'Formation' video imagery gets twitter abuzz #BoycottBeyonce
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.
When she sang about Single Ladies, you were all hailing her as a queen, but now that she's singing about being black it's #BoycottBeyonce?— no one (@Fenetta) February 9, 2016
#BoycottBeyonce is literally just an excuse for all you crusty white people to be more racist than you are on a normal day. Stay mad, uglies— Erika (@iamskysailor) February 8, 2016
The people who want to #BoycottBeyonce for "Formation" are apart of the problem that she sang about.— Britt. (@_WildSoul) February 8, 2016
