Social media isn't going easy on Mike Posner after his halftime show.
Depending on your personality, Thanksgiving takes on a different meaning. For some, it's all about spending time with your family and friends. For others, it's a nice excuse to have a day off and watch Netflix. Before we feast tonight, sports fans are glued to the television watching NFL games as Thanksgiving has always been a big day in the league. Because of the increased ratings today, the NFL often employs a performer for their halftime show and Detroit got to witness Mike Posner in concert. While that may not be the most exciting thing in the world for most, social media users were going wild after he debuted a new look, possibly making it all worth it.
Posner has made a name for himself through his collaborations with Blackbear, his breakout hit "Cooler Than Me" and, of course, "I Took a Pill In Ibiza." He has an album coming out at the beginning of next year and he was chosen to perform the halftime show in his native Detroit but he got roasted after it was all said and done. Football fans reacted in the worst way to his performance, not entirely understanding why he was selected of all people.
The artist has kept quiet about the hate he received, instead sharing a link to pre-order his upcoming album, which is actually insanely smart. Check out some of the reactions below.
