During the halftime show of the Thanksgiving Day game between the Detroit Lions and the Green Bay Packers, rapper Jack Harlow performed to an audience that was less than impressed. In fact, many fans took to social media to label his performance as the ‘worst’ they had ever seen.
As Harlow took the stage to perform his hit song “Industry Baby,” fans in attendance at Ford Field and those watching at home were quick to express their dissatisfaction. One fan tweeted, “What the hell is this garbage!” while another wrote, “This halftime show is a joke.”
Critiques of Harlow’s performance ranged from his lackluster energy to his choice of song. Many fans were vocal about their disappointment, with some stating that they would have preferred a different artist or a more traditional halftime show performance.
Despite the negative reactions, there were also some fans who defended Harlow and his performance, citing his success in the music industry and his unique style as reasons to give him a chance.
This is not the first time a halftime show performance has been met with criticism. In recent years, artists such as Maroon 5 and The Weeknd have also faced backlash for their performances during NFL games.
It remains to be seen how Harlow and the NFL will respond to the criticism, but the rapper’s halftime show will surely be remembered as one that sparked controversy among football fans.
