Some have taken offense to the the imagery displayed in Beyonce’s “Formation” video as well as her Super Bowl 50 halftime performance of the song. Law enforcement officers across the country seem to be taking the most offense. The New York Daily News reported that five police officers were killed across the nation between February 7th and February 11th. According to a very delusional Tennessee Sheriff, Beyonce is responsible. Sheriff Robert Arnold claims Bey’s Super Bowl performance of “Formation” even prompted a drive-by shooting that took place outside of his home. He also believes it was her performance that led to the deaths of seven other police officers.
“With everything that’s happened since the Super Bowl, with law enforcement as a whole, I think we’ve lost five to seven officers, five deputy sheriffs since the Super Bowl, that’s what I’m thinking. You have Beyoncé’s video and that’s kind of bled over into other things about law enforcement.”
Ummmm he’s definitely reaching with this one.
