Last night was another terrible halftime show in my opinion. Actually, it wasn’t bad with Coldplay in the beginning, but once Beyonce came out it all went to crap.
But apparently Beyonce was trying to make a political statement, paying homage to the Black Lives Matter movement with a salute to Malcolm X, and Giuliani didn’t like it one bit:
FOX NEWS – Beyoncé and her bouncing bandolier of bullets stirred things up during the Super Bowl halftime show — with two dozen black beret- and Afro-topped backup dancers paying tribute to a different kind of Panther.
The 34-year-old megastar’s crew was dressed in homage to the Black Panther Party, at one point joining her in giving millions of viewers a black-power salute as she belted out her new politically charged power anthem, “Formation.”
“OK, ladies, let’s get in formation!” she sang, tweaking the 50th anniversary of the Super Bowl with a nod to the 50th anniversary of the 1966 founding of the Black Panther Party.
One admirer, Twitter user [email protected], tweeted, “Beyoncé, backed by 50 black women with afros dressed black panthers, is telling the world that #BlackLivesMatter.”
DeRay Mckesson, a prominent leader in the Black Lives Matter movement, also appreciated the political display.
“The #Formation shout-outs to Malcolm X & MJ were excellent,” he tweeted.
Syndicated columnist Michelle Malkin, however, saw it differently.
“Cuz nothing brings us all together better than angry @Beyonce shaking her ass & shouting ‘Negro’ repeatedly,” Malkin tweeted along with a screen grab of the panther dancers.
