Beyoncé's Houston leg of her "Formation" world tour at the NRG stadium got crashed by some local police, who were less than thrilled with Bey's perceived "anti-police" messages.
Posted up about a mile from the venue, the "squad" of (mostly white) local po literally stood against the native Houstonian...
...they aimed a bright blue light at the stadium.ostensibly more aggressive than anything/everything they saw as "threatening" in the video/performance.
Bey's "Formation" video and Super Bowl performance caused a national outcry among police and white people; former NYC mayor Rudy Giuliani went as far as calling it "terrorism."
When asked about the matter in her recent ELLE cover interview, Bey denied these claims, and succinctly reminded everyone why these images were included in the first place:
think the most powerful art is usually misunderstood. But anyone who perceives my message as anti-police is completely mistaken. I have so much admiration and respect for officers and the families of officers who sacrifice themselves to keep us safe. But let's be clear: I am against police brutality and injustice. Those are two separate things. If celebrating my roots and culture during Black History Month made anyone uncomfortable, those feelings were there long before a video and long before me. I'm proud of what we created and I'm proud to be a part of a conversation that is pushing things forward in a positive way.
I can bet 99% of those police protesting were secretly mad they weren't at the concert themselves.
