Despite reports he was supposedly asked not to, Eminem kneeled during his Super Bowl LVI halftime performance, the New York Post reported. After rapping his hit song “Lose Yourself,” Eminem took a knee onstage, resembling Colin Kaepernick’s controversial protest of police brutality that led to his exit from the NFL. The move was widely applauded by fans, who were shocked Eminem took a stand against the league.

“​​Straight up: Eminem taking a knee to stand in solidarity with Colin Kaepernick is what made this #SuperBowl actually SUPER!” one fan tweeted. “However you feel about him, sticking it to a league that has had treacherous hiring practices with Black coaches and likely colluded to keep a man out of the league via every owner’s approval, it’s lovely,” another fan tweeted. One Twitter user summed up Em’s irreverent actions simply, writing, “Legend behaviour.”

Fellow halftime performer Dr. Dre also reportedly went against the wishes of the NFL by keeping an anti-police lyric in his performance of his 1999 hit “Still D.R.E.” when he rapped, in part, “still not loving the police,” per The Washington Times. It seems the 2022 halftime show will be remembered even beyond its iconic performances.
