The attentive Beyhive noticed a difference in Beyoncé’s choreography on her Formation World Tour, Amsterdam, Netherlands performance.

Where Queen Bey normally shoots an air gun intro-ing her song “Diva” with “this is a stick-up,” she and her dancers replaced the gesture with hands in the air.

Beyoncé has not only been vocal about gun control, appearing in PSAs, but also recently, wrote an open letter about the deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile. “We are sick and tired of the killings of young men and women in our communities,” the songstress posted. “It is up to us to take a stand and demand that they ‘stop killing us.’”

Seems like Queen Bey is taking the message with her on tour in the reflection of her work.
