Why Bebe Rexha was booed at halftime of NFL Thanksgiving Day game
The Detroit Lions hosted the Buffalo Bills during the Lions’ annual Thanksgiving Day game at Ford Field. The Lions pushed the Bills throughout the game before a last-second Tyler Bass field goal led the Bills to a 28-25 win.
While fans were treated to a fairly good game, they made their displeasure felt during a halftime performance by Grammy Award-nominated singer Bebe Rexha. Typically, musical performances are done at midfield, but the stage was set up above the field and in a corner, meaning the only way it could be seen was on the Ford Field video screen.
One Bills fan that was at the game posted a video from his vantage point:
Bebe Rexha was getting boo’d here in Detroit for not even being visible from the crowd during her performance. Lmao. pic.twitter.com/kKKlmzYhwR

Sure, Rexha’s music doesn’t strike the right chord with everyone. But she probably would have gotten a better reception if her stage was on the field rather than off to the corner like it was here.
To make matters worse, if you were a Lions fan, you were forced to sit through another loss after coming close to knocking off one of the league’s top teams. The Lions dropped to 4-7 while the Bills improved to 8-3.
