Beyoncé got major support from the Nation Of Islam over the weekend.

Beyoncé's Super Bowl performance somehow managed to anger police to the point that certain police unions have voted to boycott her upcoming tour. As far as we know, that won't actually affect the police presence at her shows, but if it does, the Nation Of Islam has her back.

Louis Farrakhan praised Bey's politically-charged performance, mocking the protesters and police who took offense to it, while assuring the singer she had nothing to worry about in terms of security. "You gonna picket? You're not gonna offer police protection? But the F.O.I. will," he said to cheers at his keynote address for Nation of Islam's Savior's Day event Sunday.

The upcoming "Formation" tour has already made upwards of $100 Million, so no matter what the singer faces in terms of opposition to her tour, the show should definitely go on.

Watch a clip of Farrakhan's address, in which he also shares some kind words for Kendrick Lamar, below.
