Three Protesters Show Up at Anti-Beyoncé Rally

  /  02.16.2016

An anti-Beyoncé rally turned into a BeyHive party on Tuesday (Feb. 16). The planned protest of ‘Yoncé’s Super Bowl 50 halftime show in front of NFL headquarters in New York didn’t actually go down. Instead, fans of the “Formation” singer showed up with their own messages.

The pro-Sasha Fierce rally featured signs about black pride and an end to police brutality. “It’s bigger than Beyoncé,” one protester said. “There’s actually no better thing to do for Beyoncé than to declare that black lives do matter.”

Proud of the Blues, a group that reportedly organized the initial protest against the singer, promoted the rally this morning.

However, it seems only three anti-Bey protesters attended the event, according to New York Magazine’s The Cut.

The original protest was sparked by the singer’s Super Bowl 50 halftime show, where her dancers wore berets and danced in the shape of an X, acts that were viewed by some as an homage to Malcolm X and the Black Panthers.

On Saturday, “SNL” made fun of the backlash that followed from the likes of former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani with their “The Day Beyoncé Turned Black” skit.

Beyoncé is currently prepping for her “Formation World Tour,” which is set to begin in April.
