The anti-Beyhive is planning a rally on Feb. 16 after Beyoncé’s Super Bowl 50 performance, which they say had ties to the Black Panthers and Black Lives Matter.

Beyoncé haters are ready to get in formation.

The anti-Beyhive is planning to protest the “Drunk in Love” singer outside of the NFL Headquarters in Manhattan on Feb. 16, the same day tickets for her “Formation” world tour goes on sale.

The “Run the World” artist faced criticism  from politicians including former Mayor Rudy Giuliani and Rep. Peter King (R-Long Island) for being “anti-police” following her halftime performance at Sunday’s Super Bowl.

KING: BEYONCÉ’S THOUGHTS MATTER, DESPITE WHAT CONSERVATIVE POLITICIANS SAY

“Are you offended as an American that Beyonce pulled her race-baiting stunt at the Superbowl?” the event description said. “Do you agree that it was a slap in the face to law enforcement?”

The protest is scheduled for Feb. 16 outside the NFL Headquarters, the same day Beyoncé’s “Formation” World Tour tickets go on sale.

The rally’s organizer is calling Beyoncé’s show “hate speech” and “racism” at the Super Bowl because of its references to the Black Panthers and Black Lives Matter.

The protest is scheduled to begin at 8 a.m. and end at 4 p.m. outside the NFL’s headquarters on Park Ave. on Feb. 16.

The Bey-hater writes, “Be peaceful and respect the boundaries of private property” as a note for the protest.

The organizer behind the event remains unnamed, but there is a contact form at the bottom of the EventBrite page.

He or she did not respond to a Daily News request for comment.

Former Mayor Giuliani slammed the show on Monday, calling the routine “outrageous” for inserting politics into the NFL.

“This is football, not Hollywood, and I thought it was really outrageous that she used it as a platform to attack police officers who are the people who protect her and protect us, and keep us alive,” he said.
