After Beyoncé managed to incense a few fragile tempers with her Super Bowl 50 performance—a few critics called it "anti-police"—calls to boycott the singer were sounded by a few organizations and individuals, including officials in the Miami Police Department

Well, that hollow directive wilted in the wind, but the diva feels it didn't get the attention necessary to succeed. To rally support for the cause, Beyoncé is selling "Boycott Beyoncé" merch on her Formation world tour, so anyone trying to scrub her from the cultural fabric will have to witness her in concert first. Advantage: Yoncé. 

Here's what the "Boycott Beyoncé" t-shirts look like. Not much is left to the imagination: 

The shirt also looks good when worn by anyone flipping the bird. Hi haters. 

As the t-shirts are an obvious way to say "nice one, buddy!" to people like former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani (and any other Beyoncé detractor), it's easy to see who won the popularity contest in this petty squabble. 

Further adding hurt to Bey-haters worldwide is the singer's Lemonade: The album is expected to debut at the no. 1 spot for the week ending April 28 and just might win an EMMY. Call it a sweep already. Boycott Beyoncé indeed.
