Bey Causing Ripples of Controversy
People also complained on social media comparing the Black Panthers to white supremacy groups stating things similar to; “if the KKK is frowned upon, the Black Panthers should be as well”. Many are expressing that the reverse racism is so awful in this country; if a white person did something as such, everyone would have handled it differently.
A lot of the backlash is from those who believe that Beyoncé was “smearing the police” and “devaluing white lives” in both the performance and her music video for "Formation". She was portrayed dancing on a sinking cop car was well has "stop shooting us" appeared on a wall during the video. Never once though, did she express any violence towards officers. She was simply gathering attention because police brutality and abusing power is a real thing.
