Former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani is about to be stung by the Beyhive.
During a chat with Fox & Friends, Giuliani was also about his thoughts on Beyonce’s MTV VMA’s politically charged performance – her dancers were shot one by one and fell to the ground. She also walked the red carpet with the mothers of black men killed by police.
Giuliani made it clear – he was not impressed.
You’re asking the wrong person,” he replied, “because I have five uncles who were police officers, two cousins who were, one who died in the line of duty. I ran the largest and best police department in the world, the New York City Police Department, and I saved more black lives than any of those people you saw on stage by reducing crime and particularly homicide by 75 percent … of which, maybe four or five thousand were African American young people who are alive today because of the policies I put in effect that weren’t in effect for 35 years.”
This isn’t the first time Giuliani criticized one of Beyonce’s performances.
Back in February, he called her Super Bowl show an “attack” on police officers who he said “are the people who protect her and protect us, and keep us alive.”
Bey has said that none of her performances are anti-police.
“I have so much admiration and respect for officers and the families of officers who sacrifice themselves to keep us safe,” she told Elle magazine. “But let’s be clear: I am against police brutality and injustice. Those are two separate things.”
What did you think of Beyonce’s performance? Will it bring about change? Did it make a statement? Is Giuliani right or wrong in his comments?
