Houston Cops Insisting Beyonce Is ‘Anti-Police’
Beyoncé made her way back home for her Formation World Tour in Houston Texas. She graced the stage and changed up the routine to just for the Houston natives. But Beyoncé was not fully welcomed with opened arms.
Watch Beyoncé slay the stage in Houston
Members of the Pasadena Police Department held a silent protest at Beyonce’s hometown concert in Houston Saturday. They believe her “Formation” music video is anti-police. Beyonce said she supports law enforcement, but is against police brutality and injustice.
While thousands came to see the Houston native take the stage, a police group held a protest nearby.
“Some of her performances we believe to be anti-police,” said Tony Ragsdale, who is a member of the Pasadena Police Department and of the Coalition for Police and Sheriffs (C.O.P.S.).
Some members of the law enforcement community are upset over imagery used in Beyoncé’s video for the song “Formation” and in her recent super bowl performance.
The video features a New Orleans Police Department cruiser sinking in flood waters.
Members of the C.O.P.S. shined a large blue light on NRG Stadium hoping to stage a silent but visible protest.
But fans say Beyoncé has done nothing wrong.
“She can say whatever she wants, she’s Beyoncé,” said Andrea James, who drove from Memphis to attend the concert.
