A few months ago, Beyonce insulted police officers everywhere when she gave an anti-cop performance at the Super Bowl. Now, this has come back to bite her in a big way.
According to Police One, Beyonce was performing in Tampa last Friday when a plane displaying a pro-law enforcement slogan flew overhead. WFLA reported that the plane carried a banner that read, “#BLUELIVESMATTER,” and witnesses immediately began posting photos of the aircraft on social media.

This came after several police unions called for a boycott of Beyonce, and there were even rumors that officers were refusing to work her Tampa concert. Things got so bad for Beyonce that she was eventually forced to try to backtrack.
“Anyone who perceives my message as anti-police is completely mistaken,” she told Elle in their May 2016 edition. “I have so much admiration and respect for officers and the families of the officers who sacrifice themselves to keep us safe. But let’s be clear: I am against police brutality and injustice. Those are two separate things.”
