Beyonce hijacked the Super Bowl — and strutted straight into a Black Power race row.

The pop star, 34, who had been accused of shunning her black heritage, stunned viewers by performing her new single Formation.

It includes attacks on police brutality and cops’ response to 2005’s Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans.

In front of a TV audience of one billion, her dancers paraded in outfits similar to controversial activists the Black Panthers. They also raised their fists in an apparent tribute.

The half-time show at the Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California, was branded “ridiculous” and “anti-police” by former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani.

Members of the National Sheriffs’ Association also turned their backs as they watched on Sunday at their Washington base. A cop’s wife posted: “Rise above and stay above the strife. For a girl who grew up in a privileged, wealthy family, she has no business pandering to those who didn’t.”
