The call to #BoycottBeyoncé has resurfaced, and this time it’s Beyoncé leading the charge.
#BoycottBeyoncé first began when the songstress dropped her single “Formation” at the 2016 Super Bowl. Critics accused Bey of being anti-police and called for the boycott. But since the kick-off to her Formation World Tour, Wednesday in Miami, the hashtag is being reclaimed and worn on the chests of the Beyhive.
“If it’s what you truly want… I can wear her skin over mine. Her hair over mine. Her hands as gloves.” Your hashtag a T-Shirt…
When I saw #BoycottBeyoncé trending I thought the police 🚨 were back at it again LOL turns out it was Beyoncé being genius! 🤓💵— Terry J (@TerryJOnAir) April 27, 2016
The Beyhive serves a humble queen as, that night, Beyoncé shared the stage with fans during her “Single Ladies” performance, first introducing herself, before allowing them to absolutely demolish the choreography.
The windswept hair? The ad libbed quick floor work and high kick? The fact that you held your own alongside the Queen? You ladies slayed.
