LGBT activist blames Beyoncé for LGBT bill repeal; Bey's management company (supposedly) responds

A summary of events:
- LGBT fans of Beyoncé decided to start a campaign on twitter in August to get her to speak out against the repeal of the Houston Equal Rights Ordinance (HERO), a city ordinance that would prohibit discrimination based on things like race, sex, disability, sexual orientation and gender identity.

- Despite the fact that Beyoncé doesn't even use her twitter, fans persisted and the trend manage to get some mainstream media attention.

- Beyoncé made some instagram posts but didn't address the ordinance.

- The ordinance was repealed with about 60% of the vote, with the defeat being partially attributed to confusing wording and low voter turnout. Some activists also believe that Beyoncé is somehow responsible.

- Twitter activists are calling not only for a Beyoncé boycott, but also an NFL boycott, after the organization put out a statement that despite the repeal, the city of Houston would still host the 2017 Super Bowl.








A BeyHive fan account tweeted this, claiming it was an email from Bey's management company. Take the veracity of this tweet with a grain of salt at this time.
