Remember back in February, when Beyoncé released “Formation” and caused a minor controversy? Beyoncé danced. Beyoncé told the world she had hot sauce in her bag. Beyoncé drowned herself on top of a cop car. This is what caused people all over the country to get their panties in a bunch.

As you can see, Beyoncé making a song that didn’t even mention police was probably the worst thing to ever happen to police. How would police departments ever recover from Beyoncé saying she wants wants to twirl on her haters? Why didn’t Beyoncé have some some cops get in formation along with her dancers? How would a police officer who is allergic to hot sauce get over the fact that Beyoncé loves hot sauce?

The answer to all these questions is this brave man of the law who decided to be the olive branch between his fellow police officers and Queen B.

Can you believe how effortlessly he executed these moves? Mind you, these aren’t just the standard “Formation” music video moves (which are already hard to do). These moves that Lt. Deuntay Diggs performed with sheer precision are from Beyoncé’s Formation World Tour, which means he was extremely serious about letting his community know that he’s a card-carrying member of the Beyhive. This is not an easy task.

He even ended his performance with a split that told his fellow boys and girls in blue “Hey guys, there’s no point in being mad at Beyoncé, so you might as well stop pretending you don’t want to bust a move anytime you hear one of her jams.” And being that Mr. Diggs could’ve gotten fired from his job for having the audacity to twerk to a song by cop enemy No. 1, this makes him one of the bravest policeman to ever wear a badge. Did I mention that he also performed a “Single Ladies” routine?

May someone from Beyoncé’s camp bless him with concert tickets when she rolls through his city this summer.
