Beyonce Releases Statement on Dallas Police Shootings

Beyonce has released a statement to pay her respects to the police officers killed in Dallas during a Black Lives Matter rally.

Five officers were shot by two snipers during a peaceful protest that was conducted after the killings of Philando Castile and Alton Sterling.

“Rest in peace to the officers whose lives were senselessly taken yesterday in Dallas. I am praying for a full recovery of the seven others injured,” Beyonce wrote on Instagram. “No violence will create peace. Every human life is valuable. We must be the solution. Every human being has the right to gather in peaceful protest without suffering more unnecessary violence. To effect change we must show love in the face of hate and peace in the face of violence.”

Make sure to read the call to action that Beyonce wrote after the two police brutality deaths.

    This is what she should have said in the first place. Too late, 5 cops are dead now and she helped incite that hatred that was already there with her previous statement.

    What a joke! Beyonce you’ve already shown your true colors and they do not represent peace and love, especially if you’re a Police Officer. What a slap in the face to these brave officers who were only out on the streets so they could protect the very people who you encourage to fight against them. You say the Police are racist and your young fans follow your lead. Well if it wasn’t for all of those Officers you brand racists and murders that by the way ran towards the bullets so the protesters wouldn’t be harmed, there would sadly have been a lot more families grieving today.

    You should be ashamed of yourself.

    I’m sure she had help ’cause she can barely put two sentences together.

    Wasn’t she one of the bouji elite who created this atmosphere of animosity against the police. her husband makes his millions from anti police rap music, how ignorant are people that they buy her empty words.

  • Ugonna Wosu

    Ugh, no she didn’t. And how can she say RIP if they were still alive before?

  • Mona

    She should have stated this “To effect change we must show love in the face of hate and peace in the face of violence.” on her previous statement, but instead in the first statement she was inciting the hatred that exists here in the states among the African Americans.

  • jack

    well that’s too late now beyonce. u should have not said “stop killing us” u shoud have said “stop killing each other” .. u have put more hate on “your” community . at the end of the day when you need help u will still need the cops .. u put more fuel to the fire and u know ur words and platform are big.. sadly u use it unwisely

  • Shenanigans

    stop being an extremist. SHE didn’t force anyone to do anything.

  • Mona

    wtf are you talking about??? I’m not an extremist of any kind. Of course she didn’t force anyone to do anything but she’s an influential figure mostly among the African Americans, so her words mean something to them.

  • Shenanigans

    and how, wise one, did she imply that people who are with BLM should pick up their guns and starting hunting cops?

    i wish she would get her high school diploma…. then i could take her seriously. #jk

  • Ashley Aileen

    I’m not following what she is trying to promote. First, she came out performing in a like black panthers uniform singing a song about leaving blacks alone and then she gives a speech about promoting peace and her focus on the Dallas officers. Music artist can change the thoughts of their listeners through their music.

    Oh get over yourself.

    bullshit

    She still did not force anyone to do anything and did not influence anyone to do anything crazy. People choose to get crazy and therefor must accept the consequences of the choices they make because they only have themselves to blame. She said stop shooting us in her video which is nothing negative about that even though i would have said stop shooting each other but oh well. People should focus less on beyonce who is only a celeb and more on the many problems that exist in this world so as to fix them.

  • Michelle Eve

    ur clueless. How could she help incite violence? So silly.

  • Michelle Eve

    You are extreme and clueless.

  • Michelle Eve

    You are the joke. Assumptions are all you are making.

  • Michelle Eve

    Do you even know about the black panthers? Read a book..

  • Mona

    Instead of “stop shooting us” the message she should be preaching to her people is COMPLY WITH THE POLICE when they stop you.

  • Mona

    Everything she does is with hate, she just fuels the fire of hate those who feel inferior have.

  • Michelle Eve

    you are delusional

  • http://megganearthly.wix.com/megganearthly Meggan Earthly

    That could have been her message but she / her team went with the other message. I really don’t see what the problem is since her message was a positive message though it could have been a better message. Beyonce may be called queen but she is not the queen of no one but herself and therefor people can’t blame her for what crazy fans do. Now i wonder where i put my weed at ?_?

  • Ausangel01

    No I’m not actually. She’s stated time and time again that she doesn’t like the Police and that they’re racists. To blame all law enforcement over the actions of a few is ridiculous and very harmful.

    Beyonce declared her support for the New Black Panther Party in front of 114 million people:

    Dallas sniper was a New Black Panther Party member. That’s him in the first pic, holding an assault rifle:

    So SHUT UP “Queen Bey”, you’ve done enough.

  • Michelle Eve

    When and where did she say that? It must be some where. Never saw it. She released a song called Formation and you are making assumptions. Where did did you see her say that? She is a celeb it must be on a website.. Or you made it up!

  • Michelle Eve

    You watch too many riha videos… Read a book.

  • Mona

    Quit talking to yourself. I’ve chosen not to respond to you idiot stoners here, because it’s pointless to try to talk sense into you but for some reason you still keep writing to me. Quit.

  • Ausangel01

    Yeah, I have nothing better to do but spend my time focused on her and making up stories…lmao.

    She’s repeatedly said negative things about the Police when she has no idea what’s actually going on. She’s pro the New black Panthers which have been deemed a hate group…etc. She could be a leader and yet she focuses her time on being divisive.

  • Michelle Eve

    Guess you don’t read then.

  • Michelle Eve

    Guess you don’t read then.

  • Ashley Aileen

    Are you being sarcastic because I know what the black panthers are. Now called BLM. This has gotten out of hand. Cops have died. What do you call that? Revenge? Yes, but to prove what point? That they are becoming a violent group.

  • BooBooBaby

    Yes!
    Her husband is a racist too!

    Google Jay-Z is a racist that hates white people…..you will get a few things he has said and done! Google how he kept white people out of a Club in England (I believe London) to see/hear his music!
    Plus he believes in some “Afro-Centric” krappola Racist BS too!
