As a result of her Super Bowl display police in Tampa have turned down requests to work Beyonce’s upcoming concert.
So far no one has signed up to work the show.
And, Miami police called for a boycott of her show.
On Sunday Louis Farrakhan spoke on the controversy and promised that the Nation of Islam (Fruit of Islam) will protect Beyonce at her concerts.
“Beyonce, Rudy Giuliani said the greatest platform in the world, the Super Bowl. She started talking that black stuff. And white folks say we don’t know how to deal with that… When one of show our independence, look at how you’re treating Beyonce now. You’re going to picket. You’re not going to offer her police protection. But the FOI (Fruit of Islam) will.
Beyonce was the subject of a fiery sermon from Minister Louis Farrakhan, who is vowing to provide protection for her if police officers won’t.
The Nation of Islam leader was preaching in Detroit on Sunday when he mocked critics of Beyonce’s Super Bowl halftime show, saying … “She started talking all that black stuff … and white folks were like, ‘We don’t know how to deal with that.'”
Farrakhan also blasted former mayor Rudy Giuliani and added, “Look at how you treatin’ Beyonce now. You gonna picket. You not gonna offer her police protection. But the FOI [Fruit of Islam] will.”
As we’ve reported … a Miami police organization has called for a boycott of Beyonce when she performs there.
