“Fox & Friends” co-host Ainsley Earhardt asked Giuliani about Beyonce’s backup dancers, dressed as angels, who fell to the ground with red spotlights shining on them, appearing to have been shot down. 

“You’re asking the wrong person because I had five uncles who were police officers, two cousins who were, one who died in the line of duty,” Giuliani said. “I ran the largest and best police department in the world, the New York City Police Department. And I saved more black lives than any of those people you saw on stage by reducing crime, and particularly homicide, by 75 percent.” 

Giuliani added that “maybe 4,000 or 5,000” young African-Americans are alive today because of his policies as mayor. 

“So if you’re going to do that, then you should symbolize why the police officers are in the neighborhoods and what are you going to do about it?” 

The mothers of several black victims of police shootings also walked the red carpet with the award-winning singer before the show on Sunday at Madison Square Garden. 

Co-host Brian Kilmeade also weighed in: “And Beyonce is an extremely popular and powerful performer, and when she does stuff like that, that message to the next generation is pretty indelible.” 

“It’s a shame,” Giuliani responded. “It’s a shame.”
