Miami Police Union Calls on Cops to Boycott Beyonce Concert

I’m sure she can pay for private security more to he liking.

(CNN)A Miami police union announced Thursday that it was urging a nationwide boycott by law enforcement labor organizations of BeyoncĂ©’s forthcoming world tour, which is slated to begin in the city April 27 at Marlins Park.

In a statement, Javier Ortiz, president of the Miami Fraternal Order of Police, accused the singer of using her recent Super Bowl performance “to divide Americans by promoting the Black Panthers and her antipolice message.”

The video for BeyoncĂ©’s new song “Formation” includes images referencing the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans and shows a young African-American boy in a hoodie dancing in front of police officers in riot gear. During her halftime set at the Super Bowl, backup dancers were dressed in outfits reminiscent of the 1960s-era Black Panthers.

    I’ll join in.

    Throw in a boycott of Kanye West, that would make it the greatest thing ever to improve the cesspool of Hollywood.
