It’s official: everyone digs Beyoncé and all that she does. Well, everyone minus about three people who rocked up to Tuesday’s “Anti-Beyoncé Protest Rally” in New York, initiated as a stand against the “Formation” singer’s 2016 “race-baiting” Super Bowl performance.
Of the three attendees was a guy named Ariel Kohane, who pulled out any and all excuses to justify the poor turnout. “Some of us are surprised that there are only a couple of us out here today,” he told The Cut.
“It is scheduled from 8 to 4 p.m.; it’s a business day. Also, the weather. The rain turned a lot of people away. You know, 6 p.m. would be a better time. Even lunch time — 12 p.m., 1 p.m.”

But time, weather or Bey’s message wasn’t an issue for the Beyhive, who came out rain, hail or shine and outnumbered the protesters completely. Yep, it somehow turned into a Pro-Beyoncé rally in the sweetest kind of coincidence. (more…)
