AceShowbiz - Lots of police officers got in "Formation" when %cBeyonce Knowles% returned to her hometown of Houston over the weekend for a concert on her ongoing tour. Members of the Pasadena Police Department and the Coalition for Police and Sheriffs (C.O.P.S.) held a silent protest on Saturday, May 7 outside the NRG Stadium where the singer's concert was taking place.
"Some of her performances we believe to be anti-police," member Tony Ragsdale said to local TV station KHOU11 of the protest, which found the cops carrying a Captain America poster and shining a blue light towards the venue. He apparently referred to Bey's "Formation" music video and her performance of the song during the Super Bowl earlier this year.

The former %cDestiny's Child% singer received quite a backlash after dropping the visuals earlier this year and delivering a live rendition of the track at the big game while dressed as Black Panthers. However, she has denied speculations about her being anti-police, saying in an interview last month, "Anyone who perceives my message as anti-police is completely mistaken."
"I have so much admiration and respect for officers and the families of the officers who sacrifice themselves to keeps us safe. But let's be clear: I am against police brutality and injustice. Those are two separate things," she continued.
