Beyoncé made headlines with her both electrifying and controversial Super Bowl halftime performance. Queen Bey delivered an energetic debut performance of her song “Formation”. With her backup dancers dressed as Black Panthers, and some pretty straightforward political lyrics, Beyonce was a force to be reckoned with on the field. Everyone didn’t take too kindly to Bey’s lyrics. Mayor Rudy Giuliani even referred to the performance as an “attack” on police. T.I. actually sides with Beyonce.
“It’s an attack on cops that attack our people. How they gon’ protest against our protest? I don’t think that Beyoncé was being malicious in any way in her demonstration, and I feel that anything that is done to demonstrate against a pure demonstration is gon’ lose in the end.”
T.I. also said,
“Everything that we’re doing as far as the Black Lives Matter movement, it is to speak out and fight against unnecessary, unlawful death of our people, by people who are supposed to be put in a position of authority to protect and serve our people. So if you are against that, then to me, that is un-American.”
Talk to ’em T.I.! Are people overreacting about Beyonce’s lyrics and performance?
