Police Protest Houston Beyoncé Concert
Yes, don’t worry, police are still getting all butthurt over Beyoncé’s “Formation” video, even though she has come out and explicitly stated that she’s against police brutality but not against police. Just as the rest of the world had basically forgotten about that dumb controversy and moved on to talking about how awesome Lemonade is, a few police officers had to go and remind everyone by staging a protest at a Formation World Tour concert. Last night, Bey stopped by her hometown of Houston, Texas to play a sold-out show at NRG Stadium, and, as KHOU reports, some members of the police group Coalition For Police And Sheriffs (C.O.P.S.) showed up to shine a large blue light on the venue in protest. “Some of her performances we believe to be anti-police,” says Tony Ragsdale, who is a member of C.O.P.S. and the Pasadena Police Department. “Police lives matter. The thin blue line.” Boy, bye.
