Where'd this man get his information??

A town in Tennessee has had an unusually high number of officer fatalities in the two weeks since the Super Bowl, and now one sheriff is placing the blame squarely on Beyoncé's shoulders.

Sheriff Robert Arnold was in his Murfreesboro home on Monday night when he heard gunshots nearby and immediately ducked for cover.

While he was not injured, he did speak about the shooting at a press conference on Tuesday where he attributed seven other police deaths to Queen Bey's halftime show performance, saying:

"With everything that's happened since the Super Bowl and with law enforcement as a whole, I mean, I think we've lost five to seven officers, five deputy sheriffs, since Sunday's Super Bowl, you know? That's what I'm thinking: here's another target on law enforcement.

Well, you had Beyoncé's video, and how that's kind of bled over into other things it seems like, about law enforcement.

We all know that as soon as you put on this uniform every day, you're a target."

Sure, you have to be brave to put on that uniform… but do cops really need to be afraid of the Beyhive??

Sheriff Arnold seems to think fans of fabulous music are the reason for crime!

But just in case you got the impression that good ol' Robert was a racist, his wife stood by his side to reporters after the event, saying:

"Oh my God. It's making him look like a racist, and he's not."

Pretty sure being reactionary to black culture is what's making him look racist, honey.

Let's be clear, Sheriff.

Pointing out that police are abusing their power and declaring that black lives matter is NOT the same thing as wanting to see police officers murdered. At all.

The only deaths Formation is responsible for are a few hundred extra crustaceans at Red Lobster…

But then again — we don't quite understand how racists think…
