Nation Of Islam Offers To Be Beyoncé's Security, Takes Aim At Police

"You're gonna picket, you're not gonna offer her police protection, but the F.O.I. (Fruit Of Islam) will," Louis Farrakhan said.

The honorable minister Louis Farrakhan is offering Beyoncé Knowles security from the Nation of Islam for her upcoming world tour. 

On Sunday during his keynote address at the Nation of Islam’s Savior’s Day event in Detroit, Farrakhan responded to the massive backlash from police unions which have threatened to boycott Bey’s “Formation World Tour” after deeming her Super Bowl halftime performance as divisive.

“You’re gonna picket, you’re not gonna offer her police protection, but the F.O.I. (Fruit Of Islam) will,” Farrakhan said to those in attendance.

The Nation of Islam leader also took aim at former New York City Mayor, Rudy Giuliani -- who criticized Knowles for using the Super Bowl as a platform to attack police officers.

“She started talking all that black stuff, and white folks were like, 'We don’t know how to deal with that.’ Well you taught us everywhere we went about the Holocaust, but we had sympathy for you. But when one of us shows some independence, look at how you’re treating Beyoncé now.”

While Farrakhan currently wants to provide support for Bey's tour, last year he expressed disinterest in the singer's on-stage attire.

Looks like the honorable minister is finally getting into “Formation.”
