Destiny's Child band member Kelly Rowland rushed to defend Beyonce Knowles following the backlash against Bey's Super Bowl 50 stunt on Sunday, Feb. 7.
Beyonce and her black clad dancers performed her single "Formation" during halftime at Super Bowl 50.
In addition to her usual twerking and hair swinging, Beyonce and her dancers paid tribute to Black Lives Matter and the sometimes violent Black Panther movement of the 1960s.
Former NY Mayor Rudy Giuliani was among the critics who denounced Bey for her anti-cop activism.
“I thought it was really outrageous that she used [the Super Bowl] as a platform to attack police officers, the people who protect her and protect us and keep us alive,” said Giuliani, 71, on Fox & Friends.
Us Weekly asked Rowland what she thought about the drama surrounding Beyonce's performance.
“I thought everybody’s interaction on stage was absolute perfection,” she said. “[Beyoncé] was absolutely amazing.”
She added: "I think that we live in a country where you have the freedom to say how you feel and talk,” the Destiny's Child singer said. “And it’s really from a peaceful place. I think that they’re blowing it out of proportion.”
In response to Giuliani's tirade against Beyonce, Rowland said, "Giuliani should just shut up."
An anti-Beyonce protest is set for Tuesday, February 16, 2016 outside NFL Headquarters in New York City. Drop Sandrarose.com an email if you plan to attend the protest.
