(NEWSER) – Red Lobster may be one of Beyonce's newest fans, but her Super Bowl halftime performance—which featured Bey and entourage dressed in Black Panther-like attire dancing in an "X" shape in tribute to Malcolm X, Time notes—is being slammed as "hate speech" and is now the subject of a protest rally outside the NFL's Manhattan headquarters, the New York Daily News reports.
"Are you offended as an American that Beyonce pulled her race-baiting stunt at the Superbowl?" a promo for the Feb. 16 event reads, per the Daily News. "Do you agree that it was a slap in the face to law enforcement? Do you agree that the Black Panthers was/is a hate group which should not be glorified?" Others have piled on, like Rudy Giuliani Monday on Fox News, saying the show was "outrageous" and an "attack" on cops, the Washington Post reports.
