Adam Levine’s shirtless Super Bowl moment leaves viewers fuming

NFL fans had plenty of jokes for Maroon 5's Super Bowl halftime performance

The internet has gone into a frenzy over Maroon 5's "awkward" performance at the Super Bowl halftime show.

Considering the show's creator, Stephen Hillenburg, died in November, fans were hoping that Maroon 5 was going to pay a heartfelt tribute. Maroon 5 is the sort of vanilla performer that nobody really hates enough to be against it, but also doesn't have the type of fans who are all-consumed. Multiple artists, including superstars like Rihanna and Cardi B, publicly turned down offers to perform in response to the league's unfair treatment of Colin Kaepernick for protesting police brutality by kneeling during the national anthem.

While the network's leniency towards Levine's shirtless move is being used to examine sexism in the media, Twitter users also slammed the musician for his fashion choices onstage. Well, SpongeBob did appear...but if you blinked, you missed it. Squidward did show up during the Halftime show, only to introduce Travis Scott.

Meanwhile, Atlanta's own Big Boi donned a giant fur coat as he rolled up in a auto and quickly spit out OutKast's classic "The Way You Move". After all, the Super Bowl halftime score was 3 - 0 Patriots. Never failing to entertain, the 2019 show brought with it a whole lot to unpack, and what better way to make sense of it all than with a meme or two?

Its recent platinum hit "Wait" was similarly forgettable before it closed with its biggest hit, the nine-times-platinum 2011 hit "Moves Like Jagger". The reactions were, you might say, "mixed" - and the ire was directed at lead singer Adam Levine, who was copping it from all angles.

Adam Levine took off his shirt, Travis Scott played "Sicko Mode" (and got a $500,000 tax write off in the process), and Big Boi showed up for less than 60 seconds.

The game is scheduled to begin at 6:30 p.m. EST. "[.] I spoke to many people, most importantly though, I silenced all the noise and listened to myself, and made my decision about how I felt".
