Rapper Eminem showed his support for sports star Colin Kaepernick, falling to his knees during the Super Bowl show which was held Sunday at the SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles.
Renowned rapper Eminem challenged the rules of the National Football League (NFL) by kneeling during the appearance of the first half of the Super Bowl LVI, while all competing athletes stood their feet during the National Anthem.
The 49-year-old, according to American media, made this gesture, which has become a symbol of protest against racism after finishing the performance of his hit song “Lose Yourself”.

In what would seem to be his moment to bend over, Marshall Mathers(Eminem’s real name), got down on his knees for about 50 seconds as the performers switched to the group of Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dree. It is unclear if the kneeling was a planned part of the show or a spontaneous decision. Eminem is not pronounced about this action on media.
Sunday’s show, in the first part of the hip-hop-themed Super Bowl, involved veteran performers. Dr. Dre, 56, born in Los Angeles, and his colleagues Snoop Dogg, 50, and Kendrick Lamar, 34.
“It’s crazy that it took us all this time to get to know each other,” Dre said before the show.
Any skepticism about this year’s choice of performers faded away immediately after the audience burst into applause. Hip-hop arrived in the Super Bowl. The event was extremely well received on social media.
