Maroon 5 & Travis Scott Didn’t Do A Spongebob Tribute & Twitter Was UPSET
On Sunday, Feb. 3, Super Bowl LIII took place in Atlanta, where the Los Angeles Rams and New England Patriots went head-to-head for their shot at the trophy in the Mercedes-Benz Stadium. Maroon 5 took the stage during halftime and performed alongside Big Boi and Travis Scott. And while it was a lackluster show, there was one bright spot of the evening — these Maroon 5 Super Bowl halftime memes proved the best part of a tepid evening.
Maroon 5 has taken some heat for accepting the NFL’s halftime offer, after celebrities like Cardi B and Rihanna reportedly refused to perform out of support for former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick. Kaepernick first knelt during the national anthem on Sept. 1, 2016 to protest police brutality, and has been a free agent since March 2017 — per The New York Times.
As a result, Scott and the NFL announced that they were donating $500,000 to the non-profit Dream Corps and will work with the league on "other initiatives," per Variety. Furthermore, Maroon 5 announced in a statement that they, alongside the NFL and their label, Interscope Records, would be donating $500,000 to Big Brothers Big Sisters of America, per Entertainment Tonight. However, their decision to perform is still an unpopular one, and as a result, fans didn’t hold back about what they thought of their performance.
The band took the stage and sang classic Maroon 5 songs like "Harder to Breathe," "This Love," "Girls Like You," and "She Will Be Loved." For a second, it seemed like they’d be playing "Sweet Victory" — the Spongebob tribute fans were hoping for. Unfortunately, that didn’t happen, as Travis Scott took the stage right after a Spongebob clip came up onscreen. Fans were nonplussed.
