On Sunday (Feb. 11), fans were finally able to watch Usher take over Super Bowl LVIII with a halftime show performance alongside several of his peers. While the celebration received high acclaim on social media, many had jokes for specific moments throughout — including Jermaine Dupri’s appearance onstage.

On Twitter, one user wrote that the So So Def head honcho looked like “a bald-headed Oompa Loompa” while another compared him to “one of the munchkins from The Wizard of Oz.” Notably, Dupri’s socks caught more attention than the rest of his outfit due to their whimsical style.

Earlier today (Feb. 12), Dupri responded to the roast about his appearance on Instagram. “Ha! Okay, I ain’t have time for y’all last night — I was too drunk. Me and my homies performed at the Super Bowl! So I’m just really seeing [the jokes]. Y’all got me f**ked up!” he wrote. “But I will say it’s funny as hell.”

He also shared a detailed image of his socks — designed by Louis Vuitton — and asked the fashion brand’s men’s creative director, Pharrell Williams, if he saw the social media responses himself. Monica, Timbaland, J. Valentine, and many others laughed along with Dupri in the comments.

Back in November 2023, Usher brought out Dupri for one of the final dates of his critically acclaimed Las Vegas residency. As previously shared by REVOLT, Usher told the crowd how different connections led him to his longtime collaborator.

“Found my way there with [Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs],” he explained. “LaFace Records is the home of so many incredible artists, whether it was TLC, or whether it was OutKast, or any of the amazing artists, right? But then I made my way back to Atlanta after trying all of that, and I said, ‘Man, it was meant for us to work together.'”
