There’s plans for an anti-Beyoncé protest next week… Sorry, what?


It seems that not everybody will be trying their hardest to get their hands on Beyoncé tickets next week, as quite a few people will be protesting against Queen Bey.

What’s this all about then? Well, people are going to be campaigning against her Superbowl Half Time Show performance because it was “anti-police”, with “references to the Black Panthers and the Black Lives Matter movement”.

The performance of her new single ‘Formation’ came just 24 hours after the single and its accompanying politically charged music video were released online.

Now a formal protest will be held outside the NFL headquarters in Manhattan on February 16, the day that tickets for the star’s Formation World Tour go on sale.

What did you think of the performance? Drop us a line on @maximumpop.
