Protesters Plan Anti-Beyoncé Rally Outside NFL HQ

  /  02.10.2016

Ring the alarm. An anonymous New York City group is planning an “Anti-Beyoncé Protest Rally” in front of NFL headquarters in Manhattan in the wake of Queen Bey’s Super Bowl 50 halftime show.

The rally, set for Feb. 16, was posted on Eventbrite with this message, according to TIME:

“Are you offended as an American that Beyoncé pulled her race-baiting stunt at the Super Bowl? Do you agree that it was a slap in the face to law enforcement? Do you agree that the Black Panthers was/is a hate group which should not be glorified? Come and let’s stand together. Let’s tell the NFL we don’t want hate speech & racism at the Super Bowl ever again!”

Others have also criticized Beyoncé’s Super Bowl appearance, which featured dancers in black leather outfits and matching berets dancing in the shape of an X. Former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani called the apparent Black Panthers and Malcolm X homage “outrageous.” He also referenced the video for “Formation,” which pays tribute to Black Lives Matter, in his criticism.

But not everyone has been critical of Bey’s performance. “It really was an amazing show,” said “Daily Show” correspondent Jessica Williams. “But not everyone was ready for that jelly.”

Watch Williams address the controversy below.
