Minister Louis Farrakhan is offering up the Fruit of Islam to protect Beyonce on her upcoming concert tour if police officers follow through on talk of a boycott.
“She started talking all that black stuff … and white folks were like, ‘We don’t know how to deal with that,” said Farrakhan Sunday during a speech in Detroit. The Nation of Islam leader was addressing critics of Beyonce’s Super Bowl halftime show.
To former mayor Rudy Giuliani, Farrakhan said, “Look at how you’re treating Beyonce now. You’re gonna picket. You’re not gonna offer her police protection. But the FOI will.”
So far, a Miami police organization has called for a boycott of Beyonce during her tour stop there. The NYPD says they will not boycott Beyonce’s NYC tour stop, but the rank and file desperately want her to come forward and proclaim that her halftime show was not an attack on cops.
Our NYPD sources admit they don’t believe Beyonce was advocating hostility toward police in her homage to the Black Panthers. Problem is … they say that’s the way it came across for millions of viewers. We’re told cops are bitter and want her to publicly disavow violence or any other type of aggression toward police. While she’s at it, they’d also like an explanation as to what she really meant. All that said, our sources were quick to add they will fully protect Beyonce when she’s in NYC.
