A very small number of demonstrators took to the streets in front of NFL offices in New York City on Tuesday to protest Beyonce’s performance at Super Bowl 50 of her racially charged anthem “Formation,” which they deemed offensive.
In response Black Lives Matters protesters appeared with a counter-protest. Among them was Kalief Metellus, who told TheBlaze, he believed a “race war” may be on the horizon.
Ariel Kohane, the only anti-Beyonce protester visible an hour into the protest was quickly surrounded by a rowdy group of self-described Black Lives Matter counter-protesters who hurled insults at him, suggesting he was in favor of police officers shooting innocent black people.
“KKK” shouted one protester at Ariel Kohane, the sole anti-Beyonce protester, who is an observant Jew.
“You want police officers to shoot black people,” another protester told Kohane.
