Bebe Rexha and her tiny stage booed during NFL Thanksgiving Day halftime performance

Detroit felt a little blue after Bebe Rexha took to her oddly-restricted stage to perform a medley of her hits during her halftime show at the NFL's annual Thanksgiving Day Matchup.
After the Detroit Lions and Buffalo Bills retired to their locker rooms for the game break, Rexha took to the stage — which, judging from a video of the game shared by fans, was taking place in a tiny corner of the stadium — to perform several of her hits , including a rendition of their 2015 David Guetta/Nicki Minaj/Afrojack smash hit "Hey Mama" amid a setup inspired by the 1999 film "The Matrix."
When Rexha finished singing and went into a dancing meltdown mid-song, the crowd audibly booed the artist. But apparently it wasn't because they didn't like their performance, it was because they couldn't really see their performance.
