The Miami Fraternal Order of Police union has weighed in on the growing controversy over Beyoncé's recent Super Bowl appearance and new single Formation, widely criticized as being anti-police. 

The union voted to boycott the singer's upcoming tour stop in Miami and urged other law enforcement agencies to do the same.

As FoxNews reported, Javier Ortiz, president of the Miami FOP, issued the following statement, which read in part, "The fact that Beyoncé used this year’s Super Bowl to divide Americans by promoting the BlackPanthers and her antipolice message shows how she does not support law enforcement."

The Miami FOP's decision comes at the same time as the Tampa police department has been finding difficulty in staffing Beyoncé's upcoming tour stop in their city. So far, no officer has signed up to work the event, per reports.
