Beyoncé Brings Protest Music Back: The Main ‘Formation’ Talking Points

Since the release of the song on Saturday (February 6), Beyoncé has come under fire from some conservative news pundits and former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani.

Giuliani accused the popstar of using the music video as “a platform to attack police officers”.

What she should be doing in the African-American community and in all communities is build up respect for police officers and focus on the fact that when something goes wrong then, okay, we’ll work on that. The vast majority of police officers risk their lives to keep us safe,” he added.

An anti-Beyoncé protest is also being planned next week in New York.
