As a result of the many law enforcement agencies boycotting her due to her “anti-police” Superbowl half-time performance and new single, ‘Formation,’ Beyonce has acquired an unlikely ally, the Nation of Islam.
According to TMZ, Nation of Islam spiritual leader Louis Farrakhan gave a sermon last Sunday that pledged support to Beyonce, likely in response to the law enforcement agencies and organizations that have spoken out against her.
“She started talking all that black stuff”, he said to his congregation. “And white folks were like, ‘We don’t know how to deal with that.”
He also criticized former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, adding, “Look at how you treatin’ Beyonce now. You gonna picket. You not gonna offer her police protection. But the FOI [Fruit of Islam] will.”
Farrakhan also urged Kendrick Lamar and others in the hip-hop community to “Say what you feel. Put it out there!”
According to the group Southern Poverty Law Center, the Nation of Islam is “deeply racist, anti-Semitic, and anti-gay.”
