After US President Donald Trump was caught fidgeting and moving his hands, pretending to conduct the band while the national anthem was playing at his Super Bowl LIV watch party at the Trump International Golf Club in Florida, he has been on the receiving end of criticism for evidently disrespecting the anthem.
One person tweeted: "I am so ashamed of #Beyoncé and Jay Z!".
"Beyoncé & Jay-Z (former crack dealer) sit for the national anthem because apparently the United States of America has oppressed them with millions upon millions of dollars & fans", Lahren wrote on Twitter.
The raw, heartbreaking piano ballad was written and recorded just four days before her opioid overdose in July 2018 and was, according to Lovato's recent interview with Zane Lowe for Apple Music's Beats 1, "a cry for help".
He had also drawn quite some flak for supporting ex-49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick over his decision to kneel during the national anthem in protest of the police brutality rampant against black Americans. As much as they have to be thankful for as a result of living here.
Jay-Z and his Roc Nation company consulted with the league on the halftime show, and also to, 'strengthen community through music and the NFL's Inspire Change initiative'.
Super Bowl fans hit out at Beyoncé and Jay-Z. The performance marked her triumphant return to the stage, almost two years after an ambulance rushed the singer to the hospital following a drug overdose on July 24, 2018.
TMZ obtained the video of the power couple attending the game along with their daughter Blue Ivy.
