Beyonce and Jay-Z sparked a massive backlash on social media for not standing and saluting the flag during the Super Bowl in Miami on Sunday.

Jay-Z, Beyonce and their daughter Blue Ivy, stayed seated while Demi Lovato sang the National Anthem before the start of the Super Bowl.

NFL free agent Colin Kaepernick mocked Jay-Z and Beyonce on social media. Apparently, Kaepernick was annoyed by Jay-Z staying seated after he said Black people had moved past kneeling.

Americans were furious that Jay-Z, who is a partner with the league, disrespected the American flag.

Many Twitter users called for Beyonce, 39, and Jay-Z, 50, to leave the country if they are unpatriotic.

Many social media users bought tickets to Bey and Jay's On the Run II tour. They are upset that the former power couple are being so ungrateful.
