This year Super Bowl LIII was hosted in Atlanta the halftime show included Maroon 5, Travis Scott, Big Boi and,Outkast but fans weren’t happy about them performing.  Some people thought it was disrespectful to Colin Kaepernick because of the incident in 2016 of him kneeling during the national anthem protesting against police violence towards black citizens.

A lot of people were also mad that Maroon 5 had the headlining spot instead of a musician from Atlanta also a petition was made by Vic Oyedeji saying,“Until the league changes their policy and support players’ constitutional right to protest, no artists should agree to work with the NFL. Join me in asking Maroon 5 to drop out of the 2019 Super Bowl halftime show.”  This petition currently has 115,000+ votes.

The NFL apparently offered Rihanna, Cardi B and Jay Z but they all turned down the offer due to the Kaepernick situation they didn’t agree with the NFL final decision. When Travis Scott came out with a Spongebob intro a lot of people were tweeting about it saying Spongebob performance was better than Travis.

Hopefully,next year’s Super Bowl halftime show is a lot better than this year.
