Once Garth Brooks took to the stage, and even before he began to sing, he was met with all manners of memes and reactions on social media, Insider reported. And while there were many who criticized Brooks, one particular person's tweet seem to have resonated their message the loudest, "It is a statement of submission. 'I accept your fraud and to hell with the people who made me rich because I already got mine,'" suggesting that Brooks does not care for what his conservative fans believe. To which, Brooks, despite being a Republican, have said that he's always been staunch on his message of unity and 'reaching across' the aisle. Brooks spoke to Esquire about accepting the invitation to perform and said, "I might be the only Republican at this place. But it's reaching across, loving one another because that's what's going to get us through probably the most divided times that we have. I want the divided times to be behind us."
