Did Beyonce’s Black Power stance at the Super Bowl backfire?
Insiders claim UK radio stations have banned Beyonce’s Super Bowl performance and her racially charged new single ‘Formation.’
From The Mirror:
Media firm Global – who own Capital, Capital Xtra, Radio X and Heart – told staff first thing on Monday morning that Queen Bey’s Superbowl performance had to be removed from all the firm’s websites.
And her new song Formation – which she performed – did not feature on any of the channel’s playlists.
An email fired off to staff stated that Bey was not to be mentioned under any circumstances. A source said: “It was made absolutely clear Beyonce was not to be mentioned. No photos, no music videos, no Beyonce.
“Anything that had been published from the Super Bowl performance had to be removed.”
Meanwhile an Anti-Beyonce group have planned a protest rally outside NFL headquarters over her Super Bowl performance.
An Eventbrite page created for the movement reads,
Join us as we demonstrate on the block of the NFL Headquarters building.
Are you offended as an American that Beyoncé pulled her race-baiting stunt at the Superbowl?
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!
