Sinbad was anything but happy about Justin Timberlake‘s tribute to Prince at the Super Bowl last night. The funny man took to Twitter to lash out against the singer.

If you missed it, Timberlake paid homage to the Purple One while singing along to Die For You as video footage of the late icon appeared on a projector (Prince said in a 1998 interview he thought bringing back artists of the past was demonic and he wasn’t a fan of the idea).

Additionally, Timberlake turned the city purple and shined Prince’s iconic symbol outside of the stadium.

But for Sinbad it was all bad. The 61-year-old took to social media to trash the tribute. After his reaction went viral, the comedian responded with a video. Watch below.

While we understand why some would think Justin was the wrong person to celebrate Prince, there’s no way he couldn’t pay tribute to the singer in his hometown.
