Tampa cops boycotting Beyonce
For those who are called to perform what is considered a very brave job, cops can really up the drama. This time, the boys in blue are infuriated with Queen Bey because of her recent release of “Formation” and the accompanying video and performances. Her show in Tampa, Florida is sold out, but cops are refusing to work the stadium during it. “A sign-up sheet for the April 29 event has been posted since tickets went on sale, but has so far remained blank — possibly in retaliation for the singer’s performance during the Super Bowl halftime which some police officers felt was anti-cop,” reported RawStory while citing the Fox affiliate in Tampa.
This isn’t the first time Beyonce has face fury from a police force. “During a Super Bowl party in Washington, members of the National Sheriffs’ Association boycotted Beyonce’s performance during halftime by turning off the television in protest over her pro-Black Lives Matters song “Formation,” which police believe is anti-law enforcement.” Oh, just watch the damn performance and get over it.
American police officers have rightfully come under fire for their responses to the Black Lives Matter movement, which usually involve some degree of light hysteria. And they say leftists have thin skin. Hmm.
