Rutherford County Sheriff Robert Arnold is blaming Beyoncé’s Super Bowl 50 halftime performance for a drive by shooting that took place at his home. He’s also claiming that the singer is partly responsible for the shooting deaths of several law enforcement officers.

According to the New York Daily News, eight shots were fired outside Arnold’s Tennessee home on Monday night while his wife and two children hid inside. During a press conference the following day, Arnold singled out Beyoncé’s controversial performance and alleged tribute to the Black Panthers as motivation for the shooting.

“With everything that’s happened since the Super Bowl, with law enforcement as a whole, I think we’ve lost five to seven officers, five deputy sheriffs since the Super Bowl, that’s what I’m thinking,” he told reporters on Tuesday. “You have Beyoncé’s video and that’s kind of bled over into other things about law enforcement.”

According to the Officers Down Memorial page, ten officers have died this year in the United States, six since Beyoncé’s alleged Super Bowl salute to the Black Panthers. Mind you, in 2015, 16 officers died in approximately the same January-February time span, but why let facts get in the way of trolling. The Tennessean notes of the 2016 shootings:

“[The] deaths included two deputies in Maryland shot by a gunman they were called to investigate, a deputy in Colorado who tried to detain a man reported to be carrying a gun by some railroad tracks, a North Dakota officer shot in a standoff and a Georgia officer shot while serving a warrant. In Utah, one deputy was killed and another wounded in a shootout.”

Arnold did later concede that Beyoncé may actually have nothing to do with the shooting at his home, telling reporters, “We all know, as soon as you put your uniform on, you’re a target. You make people mad when you’re just doing your job.”

It’s also worth noting before we sign off that our Beyonce detractor is currently under investigation by the FBI for selling e-cigarettes to prisoners and facing a lawsuit from the family of an inmate injured while in custody.

“It’s not a scripted show. This isn’t something from the network. We control all this. It’s about time that the people see some real reality s**t. Thank God for Mona Scott Young. She definitely deserves some credit. Even to get the opportunity to get on the platform. But it’s up to you how to you to be represented to the world.”
