The NFL season just kicked off, but details about the final game of the season has fans in an uproar.
Because Super Bowl 53 will take place in Atlanta, fans believed the NFL missed an opportunity to showcase ATL's huge hip-hop music scene.
Here's what social media had to say:
Why does it matter that Maroon 5 is doing Super Bowl if you’re boycotting the NFL? pic.twitter.com/GRqlxTQdSs— Gerrick D. Kennedy (@GerrickKennedy) September 19, 2018
Why are people shocked that the NFL picked Maroon 5 for the SB halftime show? What world yall live in? For all yall expecting trap rappers, especially awful stage presence Migos, to be chosen you all played yourselves.— Lawrence Hive Member #2523 (@B_Wash5) September 19, 2018
NFL picked Maroon 5 to perform at the super bowl in ATLANTA? I like Maroon 5 but that's some bullshit— Adrienne (@adrienne1983) September 19, 2018
Atlanta has more artist to pick from than ANY city yet the nfl decided to go with maroon 5? A band that hasn’t been relevant in a decade. I swear the NFL keeps finding ways to alienate their fans— IG: alanaa_ak (@brandi_ak_) September 19, 2018
I actually like Maroon 5 but we couldn’t get any hip-hop artists for a Super Bowl in Atlanta? pic.twitter.com/8zSCLn6IiC— Antwan V. Staley (@antwanstaley) September 19, 2018

Jesus Christ, we should ALL kneel for this one.
Despite the public outrage, the NFL told Billboard that they plan to maintain its "Super Bowl tradition" by keeping performance details under wraps. "We are continuing to work with Pepsi on our plans, but do not have any announcements to make on what will be another epic show."
Only time will tell who'll be gracing the stage at Super Bowl 53.
