Anti-Beyonce Protest Gains Traction

Beyonce performed her new single, "Formation" at Super Bowl 50. It showed an obvious political tone with dancers dressed up as armed rights group the Black Panthers.

Many have called it a "slap in the face" to the U.S. police force. The song has also been called a rallying cry for the Black Lives Matter movement. Now, a rally is being set up outside the NFL building with the hashtag "BoycottBeyonce." It is set to take place on February 16 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The Eventbrite invitation reads, "Are you offended as an American that Beyonce pulled her race-baiting stunt at the Superbowl? Do you agree that the Black Panthers was/is a hate group which should not be glorified? Come and let's stand together. Let's tell the NFL we don't want hate speech & racism at the Superbowl ever again!"

The invitation also warns protesters to be peaceful and to respect the boundaries of private property.
