Rudy Giuliani Slams Beyonce Halftime Show: Find Out Why!

by at .

Rudy Giuliani will not be bowing down to Queen Bey any time soon.

Pretty much the opposite, in fact.

The Former New York City Mayor and Republican candidate for President appeared on Fox & Friends yesterday and explained what issues he took with Beyonce's Super Bowl 50 halftime show, which was widely praised by most viewers.

"I thought it was really outrageous that she used it as a platform to attack police officers, the people who protect her and protect us and keep us alive," Giuliani said on Monday.

The superstar debuted the new single Formation over the weekend, releasing its music video on Saturday, which contains references to Hurricane Katrina and the Black Lives Matter movement.

Her routine at the Super Bowl in Santa Clara included a squad of backup dancers who were dressed in what most interpreted as a nod to the Black Panthers.

Giuliani said this anti-police message missed a very important mark:

"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, OK, we'll work on that.

"But the vast majority of police officers risk their lives to keep us safe."

We don't think there's a single person on the planet disputing that statement.

With multiple acts of violence committed by police officers against African-Americans of late, however, many people would like to know: OK, WHAT are we doing to work on that?

Giuliani wondered overall why we even have halftime acts ("This is football, not Hollywood," he said), but added that if the NFL insists on doing so down the line that the league ought to choose more "wholesome" acts.

"Just figure out who you're putting on," he said, concluding of Beyonce:

"This is a political position, she's probably going to take advantage of it. You're talking to middle America when you have the Super Bowl, so if you can have entertainment, let's have decent wholesome entertainment and not use it as a platform to attack the people who put their lives at risk to save us."

Do you agree with Giuliani?
