    Rapper Eminem took a knee for about 50 seconds while performing at this year's Super Bowl halftime show, sparking much social media reaction.

    Jake Coco mockingly captioned a photo of the rapper kneeling, "The exact moment racism was defeated in America."

    "FINALLY," journalist Jack Posobiec joked.

    "Eminem turned off MILLIONS of Americans who love their country and flag for the NFL tonight," commentator Brigitte Gabriel posted. (Kneeling protests have typically taken place during the playing of our national anthem, specifically at NFL games.)

    "How awesome to see Eminem honor Tim Tebow tonight during the #SuperBowl halftime show!" conservative Todd Starnes poked fun, referring to Tebow's on-field praying.

    Left-wing celebrities like Rosie O'Donnell were pleased with Eminem, though. "That's my guy," she posted, quote-tweeting a left-wing account suggesting the rapper took a knee for former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who in 2016 sparked a racially-charged anti-police kneeling protest in the NFL.

    There was also a rumor swirling around that Eminem took a knee after the NFL told him not to. The NFL, however, claims they knew the rapper would kneel and did not have a problem with it.

    "Eminem kneels during the halftime performance, after NFL officials reportedly shut down the idea," The HuffPost's Philip Lewis wrote.

    "NFL: Don't take a knee, Eminem," comedian W. Kamau Bell quote-tweeted the post. "Eminem: So you want me to definitely, 100%, absolutely take a knee? Got it."

    "Absolutely the best #SuperBowl #HalfTimeShow in years. Eminem taking the knee for #Kaepernick even though the NFL told him not to, was epic," another Twitter user posted.

    NFL spokesperson Brian McCarthy told Fox News Digital that the report about the NFL advising Eminem not to take a knee is "erroneous."

    "We watched all elements of the show during multiple rehearsals this week and were aware that Eminem was going to do that," the spokesperson said.

    Notably, back in 2017, Eminem rapped about the rape of conservative commentator and author Ann Coulter with a "Klan poster," a "lamp post" and a "door handle," among other objects, and called then-President Donald Trump a "b****."

    "And f*** Ann Coulter with a Klan poster. With a lamp post, door handle, shutter. A damn bolt cutter, a sandal, a can opener, a candle, rubber. Piano, a flannel, sucker, some hand soap, butter. A banjo and manhole cover," Eminem raps in a song called "No Favors" by Big Sean.

    "I'm anti, can't no government handle a commando," the rap continues. "Your man don't want it, Trump's A B****. I'll make his whole brand go under."

    Snoop Dogg also performed during the halftime show. Back in 2020, the rapper called black conservatives like Candace Owens, Herman Cain, and Diamond & Silk members of the "Coon Bunch."

    Moreover, in a music video for his song "Lavender," there is a mock presidential assassination of then-President Trump. And in another viral video posted in 2017, Snoop Dogg refers to Trump using the n-word and mocks his supporters, The Daily Wire reported.
