We’re gonna need you to take a seat, Rudy.
Former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani appeared on Fox & Friends yesterday morning, where he said that Beyoncé’s Super Bowl performance of “Formation” was an attack on law enforcement officials, reports USA TODAY.

“This is football, not Hollywood, and I thought it was really outrageous that she used it as a platform to attack police officers who are the people who protect her and protect us and keep us alive,” Guiliani said.
‘Yoncé’s single, which she dropped over the weekend to rave reviews, takes a bold stand against various issues plaguing the Black community, including Black beauty standards and, yes, police brutality.

Unsurprisingly, Guiliani had a different take on the performance and the underlying issues.
“What we should be doing in the African-American community—and all communities—is build up respect for police officers and focus on the fact that when something does go wrong, okay, we’ll work on that,” he said. “But the vast majority of police officers risk their lives to keep us safe.”
