Beyonce DID NOT Start Private Security Firm Consisting Of Black Panthers

Fact Check

  • by: Jeremy Smith

There is a NOT TRUE story on a known hoax/fake website with the header "Beyonce Announces Private Security Firm Consisting of Black Panthers". Although it comes from a hoax website many people don't read the fine print at the bottom of the page. Some of the fake stories out there are humorous and harmless, but then you have a NOT TRUE story like this. This kind of story is an example of irresponsible journalism, the kind that creates unwarranted racism and hate.

The NOT TRUE story goes on to state:

As police forces around the country continue to decline to provide security at Beyonce concerts, the Grammy Award-winning singer announced her own private security firm. The firm which consists of members of the Black Panther Party and ex-police officers, will travel to venues with the singer and provide security.

The NOT TRUE story continues:

Police have declined to protect Beyonce and her concert-goers after the conservative media falsely painted her Super Bowl performance as anti-cop, despite the fact that the performance made absolutely no mention of law enforcement whatsoever. It is actually quite puzzling how anyone who watched the performance could make the connection that the song (Formation) was anti-police.

Referencing Beyoncé's music video for "Formation":

The video of the song did have one clip that contained the words "stop shooting us" spray-painted on a wall. I am still unsure how those words equate to anti-law enforcement. Sounds more like anti-police brutality, which is a noble cause. Nevertheless the screamers will keep screaming, despite there being nothing to scream about, and Beyonce will still make sure that while you are getting your ass in Formation you will be protected. Swag.
