Gloria Stewart that fat man has some pretty progressive views, but you decided to judge a book by its cover not even knowing who he was and that’s pretty ignorant! Big Boi look him up, but Maroon 5 sucks. Good on them for the charity though!

Not really way too skinny, wayyyyy tooo much cartoons on his body. I think by far this was the worst halftime show ever, the most bother is the fat guy with gull length fur coat when it’s nearly 70 degrees, in Atlanta, nothing was mentioned about Kapp. It was a disaster. Sorry.

Regardless of who paid whom, we all know why the media is picking on Maroon 5’s halftime show. Adam wasn’t the first shirtless artist but he is unique in refusing to cave to the bullying of the media and Collin Kapernick’s ridiculous demands.

Lauren Elizabeth Jones, Nowhere did you see me say,anyone should be shot by the cops,. And nowhere did you see anything posted about blacks. I posted all races, which includes whites, that are criminals. You can make up anything you want, but it is only in your mind. Whites are definitely guilty of committing horrific crimes. Make it about race if you must.

Lisa Mitchell Barron NBA players have worn shirts and silently protested for Treyvon Martin, Michael Brown, Philando Castile – they wore “I Can’t Breathe” shirts for Eric Garner…LeBron is still playing.
That is their arena. They are Americans, what doesn’t it have to do with them? You should be worried that more don’t care.
Army Veteran Nate Boyer was the one that had the discussion with Kaepernick about kneeling. He compromised.

Chessie Wyche

Kim Adalis you’re pretty stupid! Colin Kapernick has not demanded ANY artist to do or not do ANYTHING. Not performing at the Super Bowl is a show of solidarity on the part of the artists who stand with Kapernick protesting the deaths of a disportionate amount of unarmed people of color! Now let me school you… if you want to know what someone said and what they meant, you have to go to the author. You can’t just put your interpretation or spin on their concepts. You and others like you (and I see there’s many of you) don’t WANT to see the inequity of treatment in America. God has made Colin’s enemies his very footstools. Won’t He do it?!? He’s making more money than he’s being denied in the NFL, without the wear and tear on his body. That’s the best of both worlds!

Lauren Elizabeth Jones You are so wrong on every count. You are obviously blind to facts or you are too stupid to find the facts. You better check the percentages of bad cops compared to criminals. And upstanding citizens? What a joke ! Most are life long criminals that don’t want any law. Too bad they are as wrong as you are.

Victoria J Hoover-long Boyle, you are a disgusting representative of the white race. If you paid more attention to many of the victims of police brutality, you would never let such drivel spew from your mouth. Many of them have been upstanding citizens. And for those who weren’t, the fact that you think someone who commits a petty crime deserves to be shot by police (or choked to death), then you are certainly part of the problem. We live in a country where serial killers and domestic terrorists have been treated more respectfully by police than black citizens. Shame on you!

There is nothing wrong with being law-abiding citizens. I sure as heck try not to break any laws. Thing is, a lot (yes, I know, not all, but enough) of these murders that the players taking a knee are protesting were of innocent people who were not breaking the law. So yes, it sounds racist OR classist to assume that these murders were automatically of criminals.

To play in the park with non lethal guns sold to children and be shot in seconds with nobody giving you more than seconds to figure out what you are doing before killing you when you are 12?
DO TELL Victoria what your children would have done differently. Not eaten Skittles?

The world we live in has always been full of hatred it was just in hiding but starting to come out more because of everything. If people turned so quickly to bickering and arguing so quickly then it let me knew that this is how many felt all the time. Personally i enjoyed Maroon 5. Singing part i thought they were awesome sauce. However I do feel they could have left the rappers out. Although I understand what they were going for, the message did not crossover well at all. They should have let Marron 5 did the show alone. They were already receiving criticism. I would have just put on the best performance and keep it moving.😀

People don’t understand that a live concert is different then cds. No extra sound/voice equipment. Of course they’re not going to sound like on a cd. I watched it on you tube. Not the game. It’s Maroon 5. They rocked. His shirts he threw in the crowd. How exciting for the one that caught it. And they give back. And adams great with kids/people with disabilities People just like negative and to bitch.

The jacket he threw the guy caught it and security took it back after the song. I got to listen it and hear him tell his story on the radio. Sucks they didn’t compensate him for it with something else.

I thought Adam and The Band Maroon 5 were the best part of this Super Bowl. He’s an amazing giving human and entertaining . Never disappoints. And Gladys Knight was a classy as ever looked stunning sang beautiful. Well Done.. Haters are always gonna find something to complain about.. be good humans and if you can’t say something nice don’t say anything. And turn the channel if you were so bothered by Adam taking off his shirt..

Donna Hinz Schanks. Omgosh he wasn’t naked. I guess you don’t go to the beach or lake or river. Men don’t wear shirts! I didn’t even really notice because I was watching him sing dance and entertain. He’s not strip teasing. Guess nudity bothers you! And you probably never looked at a Playboy Magazine either. . Kids Teenagers should know the body is nothing to be ashamed of.. my God you act like hes completely undressed.. Award shows women show more skin than this performance.. I think you live in a very closed off state of mind..

Nakedness and strip teases belong in the bedrooms of two consensual adults not on stage for all ages to see. When you have been given an opportunity to share your talent much is expected that the individual be contentious of his audience. Hollywood has lost their tastebuds. Class only exists in schools and it needs to be something entertainers need to bring back to the stage.

Danaé Galloway yes from my wheelchair I live in a very sturdy bubble. I am not saying I disagree with their cause. America does need to walk the walk. Quit making judgments based on appearance human beings deserve to be treated equally and with respect. I’m just saying if I pay top dollar to see, hear, or watch someone preform that’s what I am paying for. I have a brain and when I’m not paying to be entertained I will use it to educate myself about your injustice and how I can help but I form my own opinions. My constitutional right is that I am offended by the time you choose to make a statement. When I’m offended I am less likely to feel empathetic towards your statements. .

1. Entertainers need to entertain.
2. Sports people need to play their Sports.
3. Leave the politics to politicians.

* However I support their constitutional right to be divisive (just as long as they support our right to not support them {or their employers} in said divisiveness).
