Remember when Justin Timberlake "accidentally" ripped off Janet Jackson's top during their Super Bowl performance? Well the backlash from that has nothing on Beyoncé's performance last Sunday. Five days after Beyoncé’s Super Bowl half-time show in which dancers were clad in Black Panther inspired costumes and one dancer held up a "Justice 4 Mario Woods" sign, the controversy continues to grow.
