Angry sports fans are threatening to boycott the Super Bowl because Beyoncé’s ‘Black Lives Matter’-themed performance had her dancers dressed as Black Panthers.
The performance, which promotes the ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement was deemed racist and viewers feel the singer should have left her political agenda at home. Apparently, a family sports event is not considered the place to get political. Most argue that they tune in to get away from politics, not have it shoved down their throats. She was also criticized for not having any white dancers during the performance. Check out all the disapproving tweets below.

Can’t believe NFL allowed #blackpanthers to be honored by @Beyonce like that. Celebrating a racist and violent group… unacceptable— Tyler Mahoney (@TheIrishMun) February 8, 2016

Dear @NFL Keep allowing glorification of Black Panther Party & #BlackLivesMatter propaganda via #Beyoncé, & I’ll skip the games from now on.— Jodi McPhee Giddings (@JodiGiddings) February 8, 2016

Well thank you Pepsi, NFL, Beyonce & Coldplay for shoving your politics down my throat! SB50 #tcot— Laurie Baisdon (@saneaustinite) February 8, 2016
Only reason the #NFL added Beyonce/Bruno Mars is to avoid the diversity police. It is #BlackHistoryMonth. Everything is politics. #Embargo— WhowantsCityCouncil? (@LowellCouncilor) February 7, 2016

  1. I watch sports to see the game not to hear opinions on race. What does not being nominated for the Oscars have to do with football. If I have to respect your views and opinions I expect the same courtesy from you. I don’t want to hear about hate groups such as the KKK or the Black Panthers.
