The Anti-Beyoncé Protest Drew a Crowd of Three People
The Anti-Beyoncé protest outside the NFL’s headquarters in New York City was a huge bust. Apparently, just three people showed up. For a while, it was just one guy, a middle-aged white guy wearing a New York Giants jacket and a newsboy cap. Then, another guy joined in. He told people he’s a volunteer for the Ted Cruz campaign, and he was upset because he thinks the song “Formation” is a call for violence against the police. The third protester was a woman from Seattle who showed up two hours late. She was wearing a hat that said police across the front. The Anti-Anti-Beyoncé counter protest was much more successful, with dozens of fans celebrating her, her music, and the Black Lives Matter campaign. Pro-Beyoncé people held signs saying things like “Why are people afraid of black pride?” and “Pro-Black is not anti-White.” The Ted Cruz Beyoncé protester had a sign too, but his was destroyed by the rain, because he didn’t have it laminated. So why didn’t more protesters come out? Maybe it was the rain, or that it was in the middle of a weekday. But some think it was a hoax, or that it was just created to fuel the fire, without any intention of really seeing it through. Get more here.
