Playing Beyonce Hits Back at Her Haters by Selling 'Boycott Beyonce' T-Shirts on Tour

The hashtag #BoycottBeyonce has reemerged, but this time, it's on the Queen Bey's terms.

The 34-year-old singer kicked off her Formation tour in Miami, Florida, on Wednesday, and among her merchandise were T-shirts that read: "Boycott Beyonce."

Beyonce faced some controversy after the release of her music video for "Formation," and her performance at the Super Bowl halftime show this year. In the video, there's a scene where a boy is dancing in front of a line of police officers, who eventually raise up their hands in surrender.

Then, during her Super Bowl performance, some of Beyonce's dancers dressed in attire that many said paid homage to Black Panthers. They also held up a sign demanding justice for Mario Woods, a 26-year-old black man who was shot over 15 times by San Francisco police after allegedly slashing a stranger on the street.

Following this display, Beyonce faced some backlash from the Miami Fraternal Order of Police, who released a statement saying it would allow its members to boycott her Wednesday show, over what the group believed to be anti-police symbolism during the halftime performance.

"I mean, I'm an artist and I think the most powerful art is usually misunderstood. But anyone who perceives my message as anti-police is completely mistaken. I have so much admiration and respect for officers and the families of officers who sacrifice themselves to keep us safe," Beyonce told ELLE magazine. "But let's be clear: I am against police brutality and injustice. Those are two separate things."
