Beyoncé Sells ‘Boycott Beyoncé’ shirts during Miami concert
When life gives her lemons, Beyoncé makes lemonade — and capitalizes with T-shirts blasting her critics.
The pop superstar addressed her Super Bowl backlash with the ironic merchandise sold during her Miami concert Wednesday night, on the first night of her Formation World Tour.
“Boycott Beyoncé,” the shirts’ slogan read. They were selling for $45.
Stylish iPhone cases emblazoned with the two words in bold red letters were on sale for $25.
The simple message was a dig at a Miami police organization, which had responded to her provocative performance during the Super Bowl by calling for police unions to boycott her shows.
The Miami Fraternal Order of Police said they would not provide security for the singer during her concert after the “Single Ladies” crooner gave a nod to the militant Black Panthers movement during her controversial halftime show.
The 34-year-old has denied claims of being anti-police, and recently told Elle magazine she is “against police brutality and injustice.”
“Those are two separate things,” she explained.
