“I thought it was really outrageous that she used it as a platform to attack police officers,” former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani tells “Fox & Friends”
Apparently Rudy Giuliani wasn’t a big fan of Beyonce’s Super Bowl halftime performance on Sunday.
The former mayor of New York City took aim at the singer during Monday’s edition of “Fox & Friends,” accusing her of attacking police with her show, which included dancers dressed in black berets reminiscent of the Black Panther movement.
Deeming the performance “outrageous,” Giuliani added,”This is football, it’s not Hollywood, and I thought it was really outrageous that she used it as a platform to attack police officers who are the people who protect her and protect us, and keep us alive.”
Giuliani went on to say that the African-American community and other communities should be working to build respect for the police, saying, “[T]he vast majority of police officers risk their lives to keep us safe.”
Giuliani also said that the Super Bowl halftime show should represent “decent, wholesome entertainment.
“You’re talking to middle America when you have the Super Bowl, so if you have entertainment, let’s have decent, wholesome entertainment and not use it as a platform to attack the people who put their lives at risk to save us,” Giuliani said.
Beyonce performed her politically charged new single “Formation” at the Super Bowl halftime show, which was headlined by Coldplay and also featured an appearance from Bruno Mars.
