When Beyonce appeared in the SuperBowl half time event, flanked by all-black squadron of leather clad dancers wearing berets, she immediately stole the show with a routine peppered with black power references.
Then came the backlash from viewers annoyed that nods to Malcolm X and the Black Lives Matter movement had turning the sporting interval into a political platform.
But on Tuesday, only a handful of protesters turned up for anti-Beyonce rally outside American Football’s New York headquarters.
“Some of us are surprised that there are only a couple of us out here today,” he told New York magazine’s The Cut. “It is scheduled from 8 to 4pm. It’s a business day. Also, the weather; the rain turned a lot of people away.”
“We encourage anyone and everyone who supports the police to show up and march around the block of the NFL headquarters on this day. Be absolutely peace and non-aggressive,” the group said in its invitation.
“Let’s show the world that it’s not necessary to be disruptive to America while conveying an effective message to the masses.”
