Why are people in NYC holding an anti-Beyoncé protest?

The general consensus about Beyonce's halftime spot at the Super Bowl was that she knocked it out of the proverbial park, but it seems that not everyone is on the same page.

The pop star's performance had various political connotations attached to it - not least the Black Panthers-style outfits worn by her and her dancers - and is being criticised for being 'anti-police'. It went hand in hand with the politically-charged video to 'Formation', which she released on Saturday.

An anti-Beyoncé protest is, therefore, being held outside the NFL headquarters in New York next Tuesday, with organisers describing her performance as 'hate speech' and 'racism', according to the New York Daily News.

Even former NYC mayor Rudy Giuliani wasn't a fan of Bey's Super Bowl stint, saying "This is football, not Hollywood, and I thought it was really outrageous that she used it as a platform to attack police officers who are the people who protect her and protect us, and keep us alive."
