After the Superbowl struggled to find a halftime performer people have criticized Travis Scott who now has shed some light on how the negotiations went HINT it includes half a mill!
Scott said in a statement, “I back anyone who takes a stand for what they believe in, I know being an artist that it’s in my power to inspire. So before confirming the Super Bowl Halftime performance, I made sure to partner with the NFL on this important donation. I am proud to support Dream Corps and the work they do that will hopefully inspire and promote change.”
This is all how it reportedly went down. During the negotiations, Trav said he would only perform IF the NFL agreed to join him in a joint donation towards a good cause. The charity is called Dream Corps and they will be receiving a check for a whopping $500k.
Well, this may not completely put the naysayers at bay, but it could help his case? As usual, people had a lot to say on social media, and some Twitter users aren’t having it! Check it out:
The ones judging Travis Scott for performing at the Super Bowl are the same ppl watching football every week 🙄

So ppl "boycotted" the NFL ran out and bought Nike last month because of the Kaepernick commercial & dissed Travis Scott for agreeing to perform at the Super Bowl….
But a week later it's cool to watch is because they added Big Boi and made a donation?#ConsistencyIsKey
