The Beyhive Plans Counter-Protest to #BoycottBeyonce

A planned protest outside of the National Football League in New York City at 8 a.m. on February 16, in support of #BoycottBeyonce is not being received well by the singers’ supporters. The invitation to come out and show the NFL “we don’t want hate speech & racism at the Superbowl…” according to participants of the boycott, is being met with a counter-protest, “When Black women affirm Blackness/Black womanhood, they are attacked and silenced…” The controversy is sparked by Beyonce’s “Formation” video and her Superbowl Halftime Show performance.
