Beyoncé and Jay-Z show indifference to the negative comments plaguing them after they sat down during the rendition of the national anthem at the Super Bowl.


Beyoncé and her husband, Jay-Z, turned their Super Bowl appearance into a family affair. The couple went with their daughter, Blue Ivy, but left the twins at home as they are too young to appreciate football.

The "We Run the World" singer shared snaps from their appearance on Instagram. One of the photos showed her looking stunning in a green outfit with blonde hair and white pumps.

However, Beyoncé's gorgeous appearance was overshadowed by something else. She and Jay-Z sat down during the rendition of the national anthem, a move that didn't sit well with a lot of people.

Critics of the couple took to Twitter to air their views. One person, criticizing the act by the renowned music moguls, tweeted,

"What a disgusting act of shame. Beyoncé and Jay-Z remained seated during the National Anthem at the Super Bowl."


He added that the US had given the couple countless opportunities, and they repaid it by disgracing the flag and the anthem. The user also wrote that "Our service heroes" deserve more respect.

Another critic, used sarcasm to describe Beyoncé and Jay-Z as the two most oppressed people in America. She added that there's nowhere else in the world the two could have become successful.

Jay-Z signed a lucrative deal with the NFL that gives him the right to produce the half-hour show at the Super Bowl.


Another tweep tweeted that the couple should not have attended the sporting event. He noted that they got paid for their appearance and described them as "Prudes." One other user was also disappointed in the Grammy winners. She tweeted,

"Listen up, Beyoncé and Jay-Z! ... Countless lives have been lost defending the flag so that people like you can attend events like the Super Bowl in peace. You should be embarrassed for yourselves."


Another added that their action is disgraceful. So far, neither Beyoncé nor her husband has addressed the criticisms; they seem indifferent about it.

Jay-Z and Beyoncé also got support from those who feel that they sat down in support of Colin Kaepernick, who is suing the NFL for blacklisting him. The supporters applauded the two, noting that being rich doesn't mean they don't care.

Jay-Z signed a lucrative deal with the NFL that gives him the right to produce the half-hour show at the Super Bowl. Shakira, who is represented by the Jay-Z's Roc Nation, also performed.

At the time the rap star signed the deal, he received a lot of backlash. He later explained to the "New York Times" that he doesn't mind negative press as long as he is helping people.
