Adam Levine's Super Bowl Nipple Reveal Prompts Backlash

The musical interlude was headlined by Maroon 5, with appearances by Travis Scott and Big Boi. Last year, it was an oblivious and awkward boy standing next to Justin Timberlake on national television.

On the flip side, there's also a huge number of people who aren't very happy with Levine's #freethenipple display in the wake of a controversial past Halftime Show performance.

Whilst some may not be avid sports fans, many will have tuned in to watch the Super Bowl Halftime Show to see what wonderful moves were on offer from this year's act.

"Super Bowl halftime nipple rules feel inconsistent", sports personality Katie Nolan tweeted.

Adam Levine of Maroon 5 performs during the Pepsi Super Bowl LIII Halftime Show at Mercedes-Benz Stadium on February 3, 2019 in Atlanta, Georgia.

Here's a taste of what detractors had to say about Sunday's Maroon 5 spectacle.

Maroon 5's performance was greeted with mixed reviews, but that didn't stop Levine from giving his critics a shoutout on Instagram shortly after.

Times have changed, that's for sure, but many have expressed that what happened to Janet Jackson was wrong and viewed Adam Levine's disrobing on stage as evidence of a double standard. Hold up. Are they going to go in and penalize #AdamLevine for showing his t*ts like they did @JanetJackson?

"When we accepted the responsibility to perform at the SBHTS, I took out my pen and just wrote".

Others saw the performance as a sign of progression.

Twitter wasted no time in accusing Super Bowl and its viewers of hypocrisy for allowing Levine to disrobe during his performance while Jackson suffered the brunt of negative media attention and criticism after her Super Bowl set 15 years ago.
