Beyonce's performance of 'Formation' during the Super Bowl 50 halftime show on Sunday angered the former Republican mayor of New York.
Beyonce’s show-stealing performance during the Super Bowl halftime show drew many cheers from viewers, but not from politician Rudy Guiliani, who described the show as “outrageous” and read it as a criticism of law enforcement officers.
The former New York City mayor spoke on ‘Fox & Friends’ on the morning after the showcase game and called Bey’s performance of ‘Formation’, which featured dancers dressed in Black Panther outfits, “ridiculous”.
“This is football, 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,” he said.

The popularity of Village People star RANDY JONES' biggest hit still amazes him - politicians and top dignitaries know all the words and actions to gay anthem YMCA.
The singer, who was the Village People's COWBOY, admits he still gets a thrill when he's invited to engagements and watches the most important people in America saluting the smash hit.
He says, "About once or twice a year I get invited to a Yankees (baseball) home game and this year I was invited to sit in the mayor's box with 57,000 people.
"In the box was MAYOR (MICHAEL) Bloomberg and the former Mayor Rudy Giuliani... At the seventh inning stretch they play YMCA and when it comes to the chorus the cameras turn around on us and I look up at the JumboTron screen and I see Bloomberg, Giuliani and 57,000 other people forming the letters of YMCA like it's second nature."
But that magical moment wasn't as surreal as the night Jones performed the song at The White House after he was invited to US President George W Bush's inaugural ball.
He adds, "I got on stage and dedicated my performance to the office of the president of the United States and to the man that I've been married to for 23 years.
"There are 3,000 Republicans who paid $2,500-a-piece for their seats... and I went into YMCA. By the time I got to the chorus 3,000 people in ball gowns and tuxedos, including President Bush, were standing in front of me doing the letters YMCA."
New York Senator Hillary Clinton has become the clear favourite to take over as US president in 2008 after funding her upcoming campaign with cash from the likes of Tom Hanks, Bette Midler and Reese Witherspoon.
According to a new Daily News report, more Hollywood celebrities are funding Clinton's campaign, with Hanks, Witherspoon, Midler, Robert De Niro, Chris Rock and Chevy Chase among those who have donated $1,000 (GBP550) or more to the cause.
The popular Democrat has yet to officially announce she'll be running for office, but Hollywood seems to be counting on her becoming America's first female leader.
Clinton isn't the only politician getting the financial support of Hollywood - according to the Daily News article, Dennis Hopper has donated $1,000 to war hero and Senator JOHN MCCAIN and Kelsey Grammer has swelled former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani's potential campaign with a $5,000 (GBP2,800) donation.
Writer David Dorfman, director Peter Segal and star Adam Sandler missed a golden opportunity in "Anger Management," a comedy bereft of laughs about a milquetoast office drone and designer of fat feline fashions (?) who is sentenced to rage therapy after an incident on an airline.
The incident: His repeated polite requests for a headset to watch the in-flight movie are absurdly mistaken for aggression by a flight crew with post-9/11 jitters. The missed opportunity: The concept's punchline should have been that he really is a rage-a-holic and the calm version of events we see is his skewed perspective of normalcy.
Instead, the picture sticks with the notions that typically dim-bulb Sandler (insert empty-eyed double-take head-cocks here) really is a misunderstood nice guy, and the actor fails to find a single genuine laugh in the story's goofball gimmick -- which is that his nutzo court-appointed therapist (Jack Nicholson, volume turned up to 11) moves in with him and makes his life a living hell.
