Charlie Kirk trolled for calling Super Bowl LVI halftime show 'sexual anarchy'
Conservative activist Charlie Kirk is being mercilessly trolled after branding the Super Bowl halftime show as "sexual anarchy". Artists such as Dr Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J Blige, Kendrick Lamar, and 50 Cent performed together at the SoFi Stadium in Super Bowl 56 on Sunday, February 13.
Charlie Kirk, the Turning Point USA founder, tweeted about the halftime show on Monday, February 14. He wrote: "The NFL is now the league of sexual anarchy. This halftime show should not be allowed on television." The tweet was met with amusement by fellow conservatives and general public with some asking him what his problem was, while others asking him if he has any problem with Black people.

In response to Charlie Kirk's tweet, California Democratic Congressman Eric Swalwell tweeted: "You tiny, tiny boy. How can we help you?". Attorney Ron Filipkowski tweeted: "I’ve been trying to figure out what Charlie Kirk means by ‘sexual anarchy.’ I’m not exactly sure, but I think it’s probably better than whatever the opposite is." Filipkowski also added another tweet saying, "Charlie Kirk ran over to his wife’s bedroom and made her turn the halftime show off".
Meanwhile, fellow conservative Sean Spicer appeared confused by the halftime show as he tweeted, "Dear @NFL / @pepsi, What was the message of the #HalfTimeShow?". In another tweet, Sean wrote, "Every picture I’ve seen of a Democrat or left celeb at #SuperBowl is without a mask in stadium/city/state with a mandate #Hypocrite". Replying in the thread, one person asked Sean, "What was the message of your appearance on Dancing with the Has Been Stars?.
One conservative who seemed to appreciate the show was Blexit founder Candace Owens. She wrote, "This is an excellent Super Bowl halftime performance." Candace also added, "Undeniable hip-hop and R&B excellence." Replying in the thread, a person wrote: "You might need to explain to to Charlie Kirk". Another wrote, "Charlie saw some Black people having a good time on his TV and can’t stand it".

In a press conference before the Super Bowl, Dr Dre said the NFL was late embracing hip-hop, and vowed that their Super Bowl halftime show would create more opportunities for the genre. "We’re going to open more doors for hip-hop artists in the future and making sure that the NFL understands that this is what it should have been long time ago," he said. "It’s crazy that it took all of this time for us to be recognised. I think we’re going to do a fantastic job. We’re going to do it so big that they can’t deny us anymore in the future."
