This Protest Against Beyoncé Over Her Halftime Show Was Sad AF

♫ You know you that bitch when you cause all this conversation. ♫

Well, some people (read: not that many people) were pissed that her halftime performance of her new black pride anthem "Formation" featured backup dancers dressed as black panther members.


"Are you offended as an American that Beyoncé pulled her race-baiting stunt at the Superbowl?" the protest description on read. "Do you agree that it was a slap in the face to law enforcement? 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!"

Well, Tuesday morning came and went, and here was the turn out:

Protest against @Beyonce outside NFL HQ turns out to be no show #1010wins


*crickets chirping*

In fact, the event actually turned into a PRO-Beyoncé protest (or an anti-anti-Beyoncé protest, if you like) as fans turned out in support of the singer.

Anti-anti-Beyoncé protest growing, still no anti-Beyoncé protest.
