The Super Bowl LVI Halftime show created history in a lot of aspects, but it definitely marked a new milestone by bringing so many Black artists together on the stage for the first time. Comprising an epic lineup of Kendrick Lamar, 50 Cent, Dr Dre, Snoop Dogg, Mary J Blige, and Eminem, the halftime show won everyone's hearts and even managed to make the millennials nostalgic. While fans lauded the show as the perfect tribute to Black History Month, not many were apparently happy with the all-Black lineup.

Many Conservative supporters drew flak for insinuating that the Halftime show was 'too Black', while claiming that it did not cater to the American ideal of equality. "The NFL is now the league of sexual anarchy. This halftime show should not be allowed on television," tweeted Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk, only to be lambasted by fans who dubbed him racist.
