Police seem to be standing their ground in their argument concerning Beyoncé and her controversial declaration, “Formation.”
Numerous authorities believe Queen Bey is promoting anti-police through her music. Although Beyoncé has clarified the message behind the Black women’s summer anthem, officials have threatened to boycott the singer’s shows throughout several cities, and still the shows have progressed on without an issue.
While the entire situation seems to be amusing to Beyoncé, who has added “Boycott Beyoncé” merchandise for sale at her concert venues, police in Pittsburgh are planning to file labor complaints against working for the upcoming May 31 show.
Beyoncé’s “Formation” video protested police brutality, simply stating “stop shooting us” and reiterating the stance of the Black Lives Matter movement.
