Louis Farrakhan Pledges to Protect Beyoncé if Police Won’t

Beyoncé may have upset many within the police community with her Super Bowl performance, but concerts may have security after all, but not from the cops. Rather, it may be the leader of an organization that may do nothing but compound her image problem, rather than help it.

Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan has vowed to provide protection to pop star Beyoncé after at least one police union pledged to boycott the singer in the wake of her politically and racially charged halftime performance at the Super Bowl earlier this month.

Farrakhan delivered a sermon in Detroit Sunday on the last day of the Nation of Islam’s annual convention, telling a packed audience at the Joe Louis Arena that “white folks” didn’t “know how to deal with” Beyoncé’s halftime performance, which featured a tribute to the militant (and often anti-law enforcement) Black Panther Party.

“She started talking all that black stuff… and white folks were like, ‘We don’t know how to deal with that,’” Farrakhan said, according to TMZ. “Look at how you treatin’ Beyoncé now. You gonna picket. You not gonna offer her police protection. But the FOI [Fruit of Islam, the group’s security team] will.”

Without anything close to an apology from Beyoncé herself — and no reason for apologies from the police — this feud may not resolve itself for a long while. For now, she can’t convince the cops to show, so she might have to accept Farrakhan’s help.
