Group Upset Over Beyonce Super Bowl 50 Halftime Doesn't Show At Protest

NEW YORK (CBS) – A group rallied in support of Beyonce's Super Bowl 50 halftime performance outside NFL headquarters Tuesday, but a planned demonstration against the singer never developed.

According to CBS New York, about three dozen pro-Beyonce demonstrators gathered on the sidewalk, but no one showed up for the anti-Beyonce protest.

The group Proud of the Blues was asking people offended by the performance to stand together at NFL headquarters in Manhattan wearing as much blue as possible to show their support for police.

Beyonce caused a sensation during her performance at the Super Bowl halftime show when dancers wore leather and black berets, an apparent nod to the Black Panther movement.
