Eating their own.
When Beyoncé performs at Washington’s Verizon Center on Wednesday night, she’ll encounter a small protest outside urging her to use her performance as a way to encourage young people to sign up for Obamacare.
Rocky Twyman is a local activist known for putting on timely and catchy — albeit sparsely attended — “citizen pickets” around town and is organizing one to send a message to the music superstar.
“Superstar Beyoncé raised millions for President Obama during his 2012 campaign,” Twyman wrote in an email news release Wednesday. “This Wednesday evening, representatives of the Pray at the Pump Movement (PAPM) and other concerned citizens will picket her concert urging her to use her enormous influence with youth to get them signed up before the December 23 deadline. We intend to bring healthcare.gov forms with us to be distributed to the loyal youthful fans that will be present waiting in in line to see the diva.”
Twyman says some of his planned signs include “Beyoncé, Obamacare is in Deep Trouble,” “Use Your Clout to Get Your Youthful Fans Enrolled” and “Beyoncé and Jay-Z Help President Obama’s Divinely Inspired healthcare Plan Succeed.”
