Fans are reportedly petitioning for Maroon 5, Big Boi and Travis Scott to take a knee during their Super Bowl halftime show performance.

The petition has garnered over 85,000 signatures as of Tuesday and reads the following:

"As you know, Maroon 5, Travis Scott and Big Boi will all perform at the Super Bowl halftime show; despite celebrities like Rihanna, Jay-Z, Amy Schumer and Cardi B paving the road for a boycott; despite outraged fans on Twitter; despite our nearly 85,000 signatures asking them not to play.

It appears these artists aren't backing out at this point. So now what?" creator Vic Oyedeji writes.

"There's one way they can still redeem their reputation with their fans. Maroon 5, Travis Scott and Big Boi: take a knee during your set," he continued, adding:

"Show the hundreds of millions of people watching that you stand in solidarity with Kaepernick and all players who protest police brutality. Use this opportunity to force the NFL to change their policy."

As mentioned, several high profile acts have already boycotted the performance, but some are surprised that rapper Big Boi agreed to join the controversial lineup.
