GOP the Daily Dose reported that Beyoncé’s Super Bowl halftime performance of her new song, “Formation,” was met with acclaim by her fans and the mainstream media.

Many images in the video show awareness to recent police violence against black males like Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, and Freddie Gray. 

Since the video went live this weekend, some people have been calling for a boycott of the singer.

Many others said they were supportive of Beyoncé’s message.

“Some people may not like it, but you are changing the way we see each other and that is a really powerful thing to do just in song lyrics,” one woman wrote on Facebook
