Beyhive Reps During Anti-Anti Beyonce Protest Rally Outside NFL Headquarters

Beyhive Reps During Anti-Anti Beyonce Protest Rally Outside NFL Headquarters

Turns out hardly anyone showed for the original strike, anyway.

Published February 16th

Like clockwork, chatter about an anti-Beyoncé protest being held outside of the NFL's New York City headquarters lit up social media soon after her powerful Super Bowl 50 halftime performance. 

The website Deadspin even spotted an eventbrite Web page for an anti-Beyonce protest rally, scheduled for 8 a.m. outside of NFL offices Tuesday morning.

Well, it turns out that the anti-Beyonce protest was all talk because hardly anyone showed up. Despite newspapers and blogs covering it in full force, was it even real?

While that protest didn't have any weight behind it at all, what did was the anti-anti Beyonce protest rally, which wound up happening outside of NFL offices Tuesday, as the Beyhive —and others — came out in full force to speak up against those that dared call the star's "Formation" Super Bowl 50 performance insulting or even controversial.

 

The anti-anti Beyonce rally had protesters carrying signs that read, "Just because you don't want to listen, doesn't mean I should not speak," and "In the age of [In]Formation, Ignorance is a choice" and questioning, "Why are people afraid of Black pride?"

Only her fans could drown out any thought of a protest against her performance by responding to a so-called anti-Beyonce rally with an anti-anti protest rally of their own.

Instead of spreading rumors about an anti-Beyonce protest, perhaps those same people should get [In]Formation.
