Beyonce’s Super Bowl halftime performance was the talk of the internet. Mostly positive as fans enjoyed the performance and were thrilled with the announcement of an upcoming tour.

Some critics about her new single “Formation” has caused a polarizing discussion, including a negative comment from former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani.

Giuliani refers to Bey’s performance as an “attack on police officers” during an interview on Fox News.

Queen B sang her new track for the Super Bowl’s halftime show and during the performance they spelled out the letter “X,” likely a reference to Malcolm X.

In a photograph captured backstage, the dancers held up a handwritten sign that said, “Justice 4 Mario Woods.” Woods was shot and killed by police in December in the Super Bowl’s host city, San Francisco.

The New York mayor said that the entertainment approved by the NFL should’ve been wholesome and geared towards Middle America, not used as a political platform. Beyonce recently shared the message behind her politically-charged performance. “It makes me proud,” she says. “It’s what I wanted. I wanted people to feel proud, have love for themselves.”

So did Beyonce’s performance bring attention to the Black Lives Matters movement? Should she have not done the performance?
