In the video, Badu pans her phone’s camera to the driver side window, showing two officers leaning over and smiling into the camera.

Badu, who appeared to have a young child in the car asks, “Why are you pulling me over?” One of the officers replies, “I wanted to say hi.”

Though Badu seems to have laughed the incident off, some fans are deeming the officer’s stop an abuse of power. Others believe their behavior was unprofessional.
