The Nation of Islam has vowed to protect Beyoncé during her Formation tour that starts on April 27, 2016.

After Beyoncé’s pro-black performance of ‘Formation’ at the Super Bowl 50 police unions across America have stated that they will not offer protection at Beyoncé’s concert venues.

He freed rappers to come on up. He's the boss. He's the boss. Now when the rappers are free to say it like it is and say what they feel and teach their people through music and Rap and song and dance, the cultural revolution is on” said the 82-year-old Farrakhan.

Last week an anti-Beyoncé rally took place in New York. The rally was a flop with only a few people showing up.
