While police officers around the country have vowed to boycott Beyonce‘s tour stops after her controversial “Formation” video, Minister Farrakhan has offered up the Nation of Islam’s services to make up for it.
During a sermon in Detroit on Sunday, Farrakhan said, “Look at how you treatin’ Beyonce now. You gonna picket. You not gonna offer her police protection. But the FOI will.”
FOI stands for Fruit Of Islam which is the Nation Of Islam’s security sector. Farrakhan blasted critics, saying, “She started talking all that black stuff … and white folks were like, ‘We don’t know how to deal with that.’”
The Minister also urged the hip-hop community to speak up, singling out Kendrick Lamar and proposing, “Say what you feel. Put it out there!”
The backlash against Beyonce began after her Super Bowl 50 performance where she was wearing Black Panther garb, and things got even worse when people thought she was spewing anti-cop rhetoric in her latest hit.
