The Fraternal Order of Police has moved on from berating filmmaker Quentin Tarantino to bashing Beyoncé, vowing to boycott working security at her concert when her Formation tour kicks off in April in Miami.
Members of the Miami chapter of the FOP, the national police union, voted to boycott Beyoncé’s April 26 show at Marlins Stadium, local union president, Lt. Javier Ortiz, confirmed Thursday.
He called on all police officers everywhere to boycott all of her concerts on her forthcoming world tour.
The reason: She ‘”used this year’s Super Bowl to divide Americans by promoting the Black Panthers and her anti-police message,” Ortiz said in a letter announcing the boycott.
The FOP was one of multiple police unions and departments that called for a boycott of Oscar-winning Tarantino’s latest film after he delivered inflammatory remarks at a November rally in New York against police brutality.
The Miami move comes after ex-New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani went on Fox News Channel after the Super Bowl to condemn Beyoncé-and-company’s half-time show — in which she and her dancer posse cavorted in black berets and bandoliers — as “outrageous” and an “attack on police officers.”
