Beyonce Supporters Outnumber her Detractors in Opposing Rallies at NFL Headquarters

A group in support of Beyonce’s Super Bowl halftime performance is growing outside NFL headquarters in Manhattan, but a demonstration of protesters who were offended by the show doesn’t appear to have started.

The dueling rallies were both set to begin at 8 a.m. Tuesday, but so far, there is still no an anti-Beyonce protest, WCBS 880’s Alex Silverman reported.

The group Proud of the Blues was asking people offended by the performance to stand together at NFL headquarters wearing as much blue as possible to show their support for police, CBS2’s Diane Macedo reported.

Meanwhile, Black Girl Rising organized a counter rally asking people to dress in black to show their support for Beyonce and the Black Panthers, Macedo reported.

Beyonce caused a sensation during her performance at the Super Bowl halftime show when dancers wore leather and black berets, an apparent nod to the Black Panthers movement. One formation seemed to pay tribute to Malcolm X and another had dancers with fists in the air, reminiscent of the black power salutes of the 60s and 70s.
