The Black Panther Party is calling some Metro officers “pathetic” for their stance on Beyoncé, writes ABC News.
According to localmemphis.com, “the president of Nashville’s Fraternal Order of Police is telling Metro officers not to volunteer to work Beyoncé’s May concert.”
February 19th was the first day officers could sign up to aid with extra security and traffic control for the show.
The president of the Fraternal Order of Police asked officers not to volunteer because of Beyoncé’s reference to the Black Panthers movement in her performance.
However, the chief of police said that officers will be assigned if no one volunteers.
Police unions in other cities have called for a boycott of Beyoncé concerts as well.
