Former New York Mayor Blasts Beyonce For “Black Panther” Super Bowl Set

Former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani has hit out at Beyonce‘s performance at last night’s Super Bowl halftime show.

Find out why he feels the set was a negative one after the jump…

After seeing the show he shared:

‘This is football, not Hollywood, and I thought it was really outrageous that she used it as a platform to attack police officers who are the people who protect her and protect us, and keep us alive.

‘And what we 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 does go wrong, OK, we’ll work on that.’ 

I think it was outrageous. The halftime show I thought was ridiculous anyway. I don’t know what the heck it was. A bunch of people bouncing around and all strange things. It was terrible.

You’re talking to middle America when you’re at the Super Bowl, so if you’re going to have entertainment, let’s have decent, wholesome entertainment and not use it as a platform to attack the people who put their lives at risk to save us.

Halftime at the Super Bowl – an embrace of the Black Panthers & Black Lives Matter and an attack on our Police. Welcome to today’s America.’

Beyonce dancers honour the Black Lives Matter movement by seeking justice for slain African-American man Mario Woods.

The negative response to Beyonce‘s “pro-Black” performance is very telling and highlights a wider problem with the media’s portrayal of the African-American community.

For, as a number of notable musicians and actors of colour allow themselves to be pimped out by machines eager to churn out negative images of the Black community, Beyonce is being blasted for presenting her culture to the world… on her terms.

If the performance made some critics uncomfortable, we’d say it’s because they may be more accustomed to seeing large groups of black people behind bars, enslaved/chains or serving as “the help.”

With this in mind, it isn’t too difficult to understand why these critics were disturbed by the image of Beyonce leading a group of unchained, unashamed and uninhibited group of black women to higher ground (quite literally.)

Beyonce

      Everyone hate her performance, she’s so fake. Suddenly she’s preaching against the police just to sell her tour tickets and the foolish hoves(hives) are supporting the stupidity. I can’t wait to see where formation will debut next week. Probably No 1, on bubbling under hot 100. Kikiki!!! You all b**** better go suck some d*** to pay her concert tickets…

      I’m convinced the Navy and Beehive is a bunch of UGLY, Angry, Poor ga_y boys and nappy headed black girls with NO life. All of you are a waste of breath.

  2. HailBeysus February 8, 2016

    They mad oh well. She ain’t fazed. Not everyone’s world is skittles and rainbows. Some people actually have to go through hardships to get where they are.

    • Fancy BISH February 8, 2016

      Exactly! If it made him uncomfortable, then mission accomplished! Beyonce kept it entertaining, but she made a statement at the same time…and she sashayed away not giving a damn about Miss Rudy…he’s in his feelings because of guilt! That was a tribute to beautiful young black lives! The NFL wouldn’t have a damn Super Bowl or a league for that matter if it wasn’t for beautiful young black lives! Miss Rudy better get in formation! I could say MUCH MORE, but I’ll keep it cute!

    • HailBeysus February 8, 2016

      I wanted to talk to you about the new Beyonce video “Formation.” Maybe first your initial thoughts about it — well, you’ve seen this video.

      Yes, like the rest of the world! She — I’m not even on the Internet and she broke my Internet. [Laughs.] I’ve been off social media for a while, and it was, of course, amazing to have this Super Bowl Sunday surprise. But more importantly, she dropped it very intentionally on a weekend that means something to the current movement. It is, of course, Black History Month, February, but that was Trayvon Martin’s birthday, and the day before Sandra Bland’s [birthday]. I mean, this is a generation that was kind of woke up by the Trayvon Martin killing, in terms of activism, in terms of being kind of nudged out of their post-racial slumber. And I think it was really significant that she dropped the video on Trayvon’s day.

      And what about the video itself? Can you talk about the images and the lyrics, both?

      Well, the images are very much an homage to the black South, which is often forgotten, you know, in movements. And I don’t know why, because we keep having to return to the black South, you know, as we should.

      It’s very important that this film is not only located –- well, I say “film,” it feels like … an Oscar-worthy feature — but it’s very important that it’s located visually and actually in Louisiana, which, of course … is the site of this other trauma, and a kind of freedom and resistance also. It’s longstanding trauma. Louisiana is this famous slave port, where so many cultures came together and mixed, but also she references the site of Katrina, where this horrible crime was committed against black people; where its nation didn’t show up for us and where this generation is having to learn that its nation continues to not show up for us. And in that, she’s both centering black women — her formation is one of black women, who are proudly wearing their natural hair, and she makes a circle amongst her daughter and three girls, which is a little bit of magic and conjuring. But there’s also, you know, the centering of q**** folks and trans folk, and both by the vocals that we hear and of what we visually see. And that has very much been an intentional thing that’s been happening in this new Black Lives Matter movement. From the very outset, there was real messaging that talked about centering q**** folks and black women in leadership. So it’s really amazing to see all of that reflected back to us in a Beyonce video.

      Some people are talking about the hot sauce in her bag.

      [Laughs.] Right, I think that she’s trying — kind of like a gun in your bag, right? [Laughs.] It’s a cultural weapon, her hot sauce in her bag. I mean, there are a lot of just throwaway lines about how country she is, and I don’t think that that’s a new thing. … That’s been a part of her identity from the outset, since Destiny’s Child.

      I mean, this is very much who she is. She’s always represented Texas. Again, her mother is from Louisiana, as she let us know in the song. This has always been a big part of her identity; it’s not one that the mainstream focus is on. People talk about her not centering it. I saw an article that talked about her keeping that identity at the margins, but I feel like it’s always been central to who she is — this kind of unapologetic blackness.

      What about the image of the little boy in front of the cop, or her on top of the police car?

      I think that the image with the boy who’s basically conducting a police lineup is magic. This is about them being in a trance, and them having to do what they usually try to make him do, which is put their hands up. The next cut about “Stop shooting us,” it’s not the black power moment that we got in the late ’60s and ’70s, which she referenced on the actual Super Bowl day, with the Black Panther beret, but it is absolutely a message that comes straight out of Ferguson: “Hands up, don’t shoot.”

      I think it was incredibly powerful. I think it was also a nod to Tamir Rice, you know. It’s about a black visionary, a black future [where] we are imagining ourselves having power, and magic. And I think it’s beautiful.

      There was a big New York Times article about her being an activist. Is this something new for her? I know you talked about questions over centering her identity as a black woman, but in terms of being an activist — is this anything new, or is this a continuation?

      I think it’s a stretch to call Beyonce an activist. And I don’t know that activist is such a compliment. What we need out here is organizers. No, what she is is a cultural force and artist and icon. She might be her own goddess, might have her own little Orisha power, but she’s not an activist. I think that she’s someone who is paying attention like anyone her age to what is going on. This is her generation’s movement; she’s absolutely a millennial, and she’s tuned in to what’s happening like we all are. So she doesn’t live on some other planet, which I think we tend to think of pop stars, and Beyonce in particular. [Laughs.] She’s very much in this world, paying attention to what’s happening, and affected by it. You know, she’s raising a daughter.

      She showed up to the Trayvon Martin rally and met his parents, but that was disastrous for she and her husband. All of the eyes, which should have been on the dais, and they were all looking at Jay and Bey, who were kind of standing to the side of the stage. They understand what a distraction they can be. But this is all value add; this video “Formation” is not a distraction. It is a beautiful centering and a beautiful conjuring.

      Do you think it’s going to make a difference?

      Well, what artists can do is provide narrative shifts. That is absolutely their responsibility, in fact. Nina Simone gave that charge decades ago, like, “What are you doing if you’re not reflecting the times? How can you even call yourself an artist?” So in my mind, what’s been happening is there’s been this slumber — particularly unfortunately amongst black artists — for a long time, and now they’re realizing that they can’t not reflect back what their very audience is showing them.

      Beyonce took that a step further; she really did. I mean, she created an anthem, a visual anthem in every way. And that’s been beautiful to see. And it’s been beautiful to see other artists kind of wake up around this and realize that this isn’t going to cost them to put this kind of messaging forward; that it’s actually going to benefit them.

    Let me guess…he’s an ignorant old white dude who just sits on his ass and reinforces the racial injustice rather then acknowledging it and doing something about it. No wonder it made his KKK ass so uncomfortable

    He can have several seats. I love how Beyonce is making a movement/a statement and isn’t afraid to do so. I love for this.

  10. shakira stan February 8, 2016

    Beyonce only speaks about racism when she wants publicity .Let’s all act like she really cares .

  11. Rihluv February 8, 2016

    Respect to beyonce ! She did a big move that’s never been done before and made everyone proud to be black ! Who cares what he has to say ! This was very necessary ! Shout out to Bruno as well

    • rosy February 8, 2016

      Proud to be black seeing a woman half naked sure if that’s what you look for good luck with self confidence

  12. Okayyyy February 8, 2016

    Guliani is one of those people that believes that anti-racist = anti-white. “This is football not hollywood… and she used it as a platform to attack police officers” That’s the same problem they had when Tommie Smith and John Carlos used the olympics to advocate for black power. The superbowl was the perfeectttt platform, given the amount of money black athletes earn for this country only to be ignored and forgotten about when it really matters.

  13. LB February 8, 2016

    Well her new gimmick this time around is black shoes, all that while wearing a blonde weave and wishing she was Latina

    • LB February 8, 2016

      *black issues

    • Britney Stan February 8, 2016

      She’s confused this is what happens when your pimp husband controls you.

      • LB February 8, 2016

        She does seem confused this time around

    • Okayyyy February 8, 2016

      Referring to a declaration of black power as a gimmick… Spoken like a true white supremacist.

      • Rihboy February 8, 2016

        shes about several years and months late of trying to utilize propaganda to trend. It’s such a juvenile move. I’m all here for the declaration, but not the manner in which she did it. Why cause an uproar to benefit from it? Knowing very well that she never cared until now. Go to rallies, do interviews, give press conferences, something more than a video of you twerking and girating to proclaim black power. It wasn’t the setting for this kind of agenda. Then after the game she said she just wants everyone to feel good about themselves. What? No talk about the racy image you just portrayed in from of 100 mill? Shady, conniving, disgusting, and self benefiting. Just pure trash.

      • Okayyyy February 8, 2016

        So much b******* in one comment. Oy. Beyonce’s several years and months late? No hun, YOU are several years and months late. You’ve assumed that just because you’re ignorant to Beyonce’s involvement in black affairs, that it doesn’t exist. Why don’t you bother to make an INFORMED opinion? She’s utilizing propaganda??? What progranda??? Further explanation of this claim is needed. And this wasn’t the setting for it?? You are perpetuating the same “silence the black voice” nonsense as Guliani. Your inability to understand why this was done at the Superbowl tells me that you know nothing about black history beyond MLK, Malcolm X, and Rosa Parks. Everything you mentioned: interviews, press conferences, rallies etc… that’s talk. That’s not action. What Beyonce did is far greater and far more impactful than a press conference. We don’t need celebrities to simply write checks. We don’t need them to sit in press conferences and interviews to let us know how unfair the world is. We need to be heard. We need to be appropriately assertive. That was the point. Beyonce made people listen, using the most watched televised program in history… all the while doing her job, it seems you’ve forgotten that Beyonce is an entertainer. She went to the Superbowl… to entertain… and conveniently started a countrywide conversation at the same. damn. time.

    • rosy February 8, 2016

      Lol that was funny lawd I just throw up

  14. Britney Stan February 8, 2016

    They’ll be blacklisting her if she keeps this up.

    • LmfaoHoe February 8, 2016

      At this point in her career Bey clearly doesn’t give AF so.

  15. LB February 8, 2016

    So let us all pretend that Beyonce cares about black issues whilst ignoring the fact that she has done nothing for the black community, wears a blonde weave and wished she was latina

    • Danyboo February 8, 2016

      Beyonce is donoting the money from the stop on her detriot point on the formation tour to help the flint water crisis not to mention what shes done for haiti new orleons houston kids etc dont give it like that

  16. Love February 8, 2016

    YAWNce is so pro black. That’s why she bleached her skin to look lighter, got a nose job to narrow down her nose and wears BLONDE weave. She’s so proud to be black. Lol

  18. SMH February 8, 2016

    Yeah I’m sorry but all this ‘beyonce is pro black’ is a load of bullisht as long as she’s walking around with a blonde weave and skin 3 times lighter than her natural skin tone. Only her fans are dumb enough to believe it.

    • Fancy BISH February 8, 2016

      Being black comes in many flavors…in fact, we have ALL the flavor! The fact we even ALLOWED anyone to make us feel otherwise is the real tragedy…it doesn’t get any more beautiful! White people try to hide Mama June and Honey Boo Boo lol! Yes, Marilyn Monroe is beautiful…yes, James Dean is beautiful…but you better believe they look like Honey Boo Boo too! #FACTS #SCREAMING

  19. RICHIE_RICH February 8, 2016

    Beyoncé is a natural light skin woman who is all black. She is a southern country gal. Can’t get any blacker than that. So cut the BS, y’all just MAD CAUSE SHE SLAY

  20. King Mark111 /.\ February 8, 2016

    She said “Stop shooting us.” So unless you’re the cops that’s shooting unarmed people, then you have nothing to worry about. Why about you get rid of bad cops, the only people that making cops look bad are BAD cops and when ALL cops cover up for them. So f*** them!

  21. briano 1 February 8, 2016

    Like someone said what bw in their right mind that was raised privileged promotes ghetto

    Ill tell you one that cannot pander to any other group

    Oh and bow down an acknowledge she aint alllll the way negro

    F her and whatever ir is she’s seliing…oh i hear its hats that say hot sauce

    Read about some truly dedicated women in our struggle which was for education which this thing has ridiculed in wax and so much more

    I am happy she brought images that i hear evoke something as i havent watchewatched but she has infused so much nonsense

    Hopefully the images spark something and people will learn something

  22. DIABETES UNBOTHERED February 8, 2016

    I got a feeling this will be her most socially causoius thought provocing unapolegic & contraversial zconfrontational album yet. Lol at rih expected to sell less than 50k this week probably WITH streaming. Even after copying real album sellers (tha carters samsung/secrecy) she still flops. Adele will block her just like during the 21 era which btw 21 still selling 20k per wk ww.

    • Rihboy February 8, 2016

      Why you so worried about rih. You already diabetic. Don’t eff around and get a heart attack now. This has nothing to do with rih. It has to do with bey causing and uproar and fleeing the scene.

  23. Navy Gravy February 8, 2016

    You can’t satisfy everyone. Someone’s always gonna have some bullshh* to say. I applaud Beyonce for doing massive things she doesn’t usually do since people always say she doesn’t speak on issues in the black community. People always gonna find negatives in the positive things you try to do. I just wish she would have recorded a song and put all the topics she wanted to shed light on into her music so there wouldn’t be any misunderstandings, instead of the song being about “b**** I slay” and trying to make it deeper than it is. It might have been received better if it didn’t seem like there were hidden and subliminal messages in the performance and the video. Jmo

  24. Keri Qween February 8, 2016

    She tries to stir up controversy every time she has something to promote

  25. Royalkev February 8, 2016

    How on Earth did Giuliani find a way to negatively interpret Beyonce’s message in ‘Formation’ this way? Beyonce speaking out against police brutality is her way of condoning an attack on law enforcement?! GTOH! His take away from it is preposterous! Bey’s asking her community to unite, be proud of where they come from and at the same time demanding respect for human life that’s recklessly taken away. ‘Formation’ had nothing to do with encouraging rage and corruption! Sit down Rudy!

  26. stan February 8, 2016

    isn’t this the same mayor who implemented stop-and-frisk all throughout nyc?

    not surprising.

  27. FC/JC February 8, 2016

    Its not a song to make people comfortable!
    Its supposed to CAUSE CONVERSATION!
    This former mayor was clearly baited…..
    The performance and lyrics are meant to expose the racist mentality of AMERIKKKA!

    Im sure there are millions more opinions like his about to come out and make headlines.

    Baby* a*

  31. Dossome February 8, 2016

    if not for the strong support she has from the black community,The “Powers that Be” would’ve already discarded her…I mean,Pop radio barely plays her music,everything she does is overscrutinized by these white fellows.Gotta admit,she was smart enough to realize this and started doing things on her own terms…The black community genuinely cares about her and her highlighting their plight on a grand stage like The Superbowl was really brave and commendable…Seeing the likes of Michael,Whitney,Mariah & Janet go from totally beloved to being dragged to the pits to the extent of having their legacy and accomplishments almost wiped out,like for real,it took Michael and Whitney dying for them to be treated like royalty again.You have to admit she really outsmarted the system

    • HailBeysus February 8, 2016

      So much truth spoken!!! Yet also so scarey when you think about it. I won’t be surprised if within the next couple of years loads of controversy and scandals start surrounding her.

      • Dossome February 8, 2016

        Start???hun,controversy has been surrounding her for years.She’s just smart enough to turn that around & in most cases to her advantage…She’ll be fine

    • RICHIE_RICH February 8, 2016

      Thank you . She playing them at their own game .

    • Royalkev February 8, 2016

      So true Dos! You can add Prince to this list also! I feel like he’s the first artist I can remember going independent (back in the early 00’s) and controlling who touches his music. He did this at a time when everyone just thought he was being difficult. Prince must have saw a lot of the behind the scenes injustices coming. A lot of legacies are being downplayed today, although that may not appear to be the case because there’s a level of respect shown for the artists we lost(as you stated). Still, you can see that their being shortchanged! What I don’t understand is how you have about a good 5 major artists that had great longevity, universally known, all stemming from the 80’s/90’s, dominating music til the 00’s … I’m not excluding the 60’s/70’s generation that was great (Aretha, James Brown, Diana, Tina, Marvin, etc), but they’ve made it possible for others to reach a plateau that they’ve laid a foundation for. I’m talking about the ones that benefited from those pioneers that were in a position to break down even more barriers and have international success beyond imagination (Whitney, Janet, Mariah, Prince & MJ – who might be an exception in this case I’m making), with their airplay COMBINED on most Pop radio stations today it wouldn’t even add up to a 5th of the airplay Madonna receives (who happens to be their peer that they’ve seen equal /or greater success than at times). Was Madonna the only person around for these decades? No. They’ve turned their backs on these entertainers, which is ridiculous. It’s like every icon from decades ago from OJ/Cosby to MJ has been shamed. That’s why it’s kind of silly for us to argue everyday over whose better. I’m not trying to sound preachy, but this is really something to take notice of. I’m not excuse foul behavior, I’m just paying attention to a trend.

      We may not like each other favs, but we have to be aware of their mistreatment. Cycles like this start and never end because where to busy arguing for too long. By 2020, these charts can start looking even more bizarre than they do now… For the record, I’m not saying Madonna didn’t pay her dues, she has an incredible discography (the 80’s body of work), but it’s unfair that she seems to be the only OG getting praised these days! That’s why I’m happy that some of our current favs try to be more forward thinking, believe me it’ll do them a lot of good in today’s music game.

    Whites largely discriminate against minorities and WE’RE the militant ones with outrageous behavior??! Police brutality is outrageous. Zero Academy nominations for blacks is outrageous. Throwing out the word “thug” for every young black man is outrageous. Rudy Giuliani is outrageous.

    • OMG Logic!!! February 8, 2016

      Blacks deserve Academy Award nominations simply for being Black?

      Do you also get upset when Blacks call Whites “White trash” or “rednecks” or “honkeys” or “trailer trash?”

        Acknowledging that there are issues on both sides would suffice. I’m tired of reading this American Blacks are 100% victims rhetoric.

        Yes there is racism (from all races towards other races).
        Yes it impacts Blacks and Hispanics (though they are completely overlooked by the average BLM protester) more frequently.
        No, it is still not okay to make blanket statements about Caucasian Americans. It is neither fair nor correct.

    What a load of pretentious pseudo-intellectual bull5h1t.

    Thighyonce’s forgettable music doesn’t take anyone but delusional queens higher.

    There’s nothing wrong with making a “political statement”. I just don’t think it should have been done at the SuperBowl. That was a time to be “entertained”, not preached too. Had she done this on her own time, it probably would have gone over better with some folks. But, if you noticed, Bruno Mars and ColdPlay kept it pretty light and fun. Beyonce had more of a “military-like”, serious tone to her performance. This is probably what turned alot of people off. I guess they figure: “There’s a time and a place for everything”. And, maybe the SuperBowl was not the time and place for a political statement.

      Thighyonce was just doing what she always does. Stealing someone else’s moment and making things about her. Now all the headlines are about how controversial she was and how brave she is when in reality she’s just getting the hype train going for her next album.

    It was long overdue… And even though she is doing it for obviously selfish reasons…
    .
    This type of social statement is VERY necessary in a day and age where INSTITUTIONALIZED racism is very much real today as it was 50 years ago.

    .
    Other races should be mute on this topic if u can’t relate. Your opinions are not needed as your generations to come won’t be affected.

    .
    Waaaay overdue but what’s done is done. I like to see racists seethe even if it makes BEYfake get a lil buzz for her leotard driven hair whipping tour.

    Where was he while all the black youth and adults were being, choked, grouped, dragged and shot??

    He is not chiming for no damn change so therefore take his bum b1tch back behind his sofa and stay seated until he promotes the clean up of the police system.

    ✊ ✊ stay rising until better is the result on all levels.
