All hail Queen Bey once again. This time she’s pissed of the police union. Apparently, the police union has called for law enforcement to boycott Beyonce’s world tour! Just check out this report from cnn.com.

(CNN)Support for a national law enforcement boycott of Beyonce’s world tour appears to be picking up steam, even as critics dismiss the action as unnecessary.

The Miami Fraternal Order of Police urged the boycott Thursday ahead of the tour’s April launch at Marlins Park. But backlash against Beyonce started almost immediately after the superstar singer’s release of her controversial “Formation” music video and Super Bowl 50 halftime show performance earlier this month.

Critics have objected to the #BlackLivesMatter themes in both, and specifically to her backup dancers at the halftime performance being outfitted in Black Panther-like costumes.

In one portion of the music video, a young African-American boy wearing a hoodie dances before a line of police officers wearing riot gear before the words “Stop Shooting Us” appear in graffiti on a wall.

“To taint police officers globally in the Super Bowl is really wrong,” said Sgt. Ed Mullins, president of the Sergeants Benevolent Association in New York City.

Mullins said the boycott, which he supports, would involve officers refusing to work paid off-duty security for the event, not refusing to perform regular law enforcement duties…. cnn.com
