Miami Police Boycott Beyonce Concert Over Her Super Bowl 50 Performance & 'Formation' Video. Urge Law Enforcement Across The Country To Do The Same (Video)

Video After The Jump

The controversy swirling around Beyonce's performance at Super Bowl 50 on Sunday, February 7, continues to grow.

Rudy Guiliani and others have criticized the singer for saluting the Black Panther Party during the show because they feel the organization was anti-police.

The Miami Fraternal Order of Police are now calling for all law enforcement agencies across America to boycott Beyonce's concerts.

“The fact that Beyoncé used this year’s Super Bowl to divide Americans by promoting the Black Panthers and her anti-police message shows how she does not support law enforcement,” Javier Oritz President of The Miami FOP said in the press release. “We ask all law enforcement labor organizations to join our boycott across the country and to boycott all of her concerts.”

The Houston native will kick off her "Formation World Tour." at Marlins Park in Miami on April 27. Ortiz told CBS Miami that officers don't want to provide security for the event.

"It was a unanimous vote," he said. "We're not going to voluntarily show up there and sign up to work for a woman. A woman that has portrayed a message that is anti-police."

Beyonce's video for her latest single titled "Formation" is something that Ortiz also finds offensive.

In it the singer celebrates her African American roots, tackles police brutality and in one scene, stands on top of a sinking police cruiser.

Not all members of the Miami Police Department agree with Ortiz's call for a boycott. Major Delrich Moss says Ortiz works for the police department, but only speaks for the union he represents.

"I've talked to some people who were at that meeting. They're saying if there was a vote taken, it was a vote of one because they saw no vote," Moss told CBS Miami.

What's your take on this proposed Beyonce boycott by police?

It was the right thing to do, love Beyonce but the super bowl shouldn't be about making statements or pushing anyones agenda doesn't matter how good me, you or anyone think that agenda is, that's just a fact and logic.

I think a lot of you guys up here wrote a lot of good, positive comments. Unfortunately commenting on this site dose nothing for the struggle.

Most of you guys have great understandings of what's going on, and would be wise to put that into good use.

@Fagtheworld We speak English in this country. No one even understands what you're trying to say anymore.
