Sports fans on social media split the opinion on a performance of 'Lift Every Voice and Sing' at Super Bowl LVIII - with many praising the singing of Andra Day with others objecting to the song being sang at all.
'Lift Every Voice' is recognized by the NAACP as the 'Black national anthem' for African-Americans and has been performed at the NFL's championship game ever since Super Bowl LV in the 2020 season.
A number of conservatives on social media were not happy that this tradition has continued - with political analysts and Republican politicians vowing to boycott the game.
Florida representative Matt Gaetz (R) tweeted out an exchange he had with his wife saying that he would not be watching the show because, 'They're desecrating America's National Anthem by playing something called the "Black National Anthem."'
Conservative commentator Megyn Kelly wrote, 'The so-called Black National Anthem does not belong at the Super Bowl. We already have a National Anthem and it includes EVERYONE.'
