In a press release from Governor Dayton’s office Monday, he stated, “Beyoncé has influenced many Minnesota girls and women with the powerful, positive messages in her music, and her impact and success have been widely-recognized.”
Monday was the singer’s fourth time performing in the State of Minnesota.

Fans of recently deceased rock legend Prince – who was born, raised, lived and died in Minnesota – took to social media in a fury, blasting the Governor for making the declaration, when he had never done the same for Prince.
Others referenced her controversial performances which they feel have incited and promoted violence against law endorsement officers.
