CeeLo Green is apologizing for saying "f*ck" all of the Super Bowl boycotters while hyping up Big Boi's Super Bowl halftime performance. See his apology, Big Boi's performance, plus PETA trolling the Atlanta rapper inside...

Before this year, the Super Bowl halftime show has been a coveted performance slot that musicians would die for. Today, not so much.

Several celebs, including Rihanna, Jay Z, Cardi B and Pink, turned down the opportunity to perform during the halftime show this year in support of former QB Colin Kaepernick. As you all know, the NFL blackballed the quarterback for taking a knee during the national anthem as a silent protest against police brutality and racial injustice.

Big Boi - an Atlanta native - hit the stage alongside his Dungeon Family partner Sleepy Brown to perform the Outkast classic, "The Way You Move" during Super Bowl LIII in Atlanta. As Big Boi wrapped up his performance, he began chanting, "ATL H*e" and the crowd joined in.

When it was announced that Big Boi (and Travis Scott) would be joining Maroon 5 during the Super Bowl halftime show, it caught a lot of heat from folks who are boycotting the NFL.

However, CeeLo Green had his homie's back. He hopped on social media to congratulate Big Boi, but he also threw hella shade at the "so called" NFL "protestors."

He wrote (and deleted), “Yo big we riding wit you fam DO THAT SHIT! Fuck these so called protesters you just got 100m worth of press. I’ll kill for you."

Activist Tamika D. Mallory shared a screenshot of his post, BASHING him for disrespecting those who are boycotting the NFL

He wrote: 

"I'd like to address what has become a large misunderstanding and I hope that you will receive this post as clarity, closure, and, most important, an apology. I posted yesterday, excited in the heat of the moment and spirit of triumph in support of my fellow Atlantan, teammate and brother @bigboi. My post was speaking exclusively to him and about those who were opposed to him performing. I would NEVER disrespect or devalue the stance or the severity of why it has been a call to arms as far as our living situation here in America. I am well aware, I fully support, and I stand with all of my extended family around the world. Once again, I sincerely apologize to those I have offended and hope this helps clarify my intentions. CeeLo Green"
