The Super Bowl halftime show has historically been a coveted performance slot for musicians across genres. This year, however, controversy has tainted the show's appeal. Many performers turned down the opportunity to perform, including Cardi B, Rihanna, and Pink.

In 2016, former 49er's quarterback Colin Kaepernick took a knee during the National Anthem to protest police brutality and racial injustice. However, after the NFL shunned Kaepernick, everything the league does is viewed through a contentious lens, and that includes the halftime show.

In the end, Maroon 5, Travis Scott and Big Boi took the stage during halftime, and following their performance, CeeLo Green made a point to congratulate Big Boi, and throw shade at protestors in the process. "Yo big we riding wit you fam DO THAT SHIT! Fuck these so called protesters you just got 100m worth of press. I'll kill for you," the artist wrote on Twitter. His comment about people boycotting the NFL didn't go unnoticed.
