The former One Direction singer is asked by his loyal fans to cancel his upcoming headlining concert on January 31 ahead of the NFL annual championship game in Miami.

AceShowbiz - Fans are urging Harry Styles to pull out of his headlining slot at Pepsi Zero Sugar's Super Bowl Party on January 31, 2020.

The former One Direction star will take the stage at Meridian Island in Miami, Florida, where he'll perform hits including "Sign of the Times", "Adore You", and "Watermelon Sugar".

"I'm excited to be playing the Pepsi Super Bowl party this year," Harry Styles said in a statement. "I hear they're amazing and I'm looking forward to it. See you in Miami - H."

However, fans have taken to social media with the "#HarryBackOut," appealing to the star to withdraw from the gig in support of former National Football League (NFL) quarterback Colin Kaepernick - who supporters claim was blackballed from the NFL in 2016 after taking a knee during the U.S. national anthem to protest police brutality against racial minorities.

NFL teams have since refused to sign the sportsman.

The event is being held in conjunction with the newly introduced matte black Pepsi Zero Sugar can design, and the company has also missed the mark in the past, after being called out for racial insensitivity regarding their advertisement in 2017 starring Kendall Jenner, which borrowed imagery from the Black Lives Matter movement and appearing to suggest the beverage could heal all rifts.

Mark Ronson is also set to perform a special DJ set at the bash.

The Super Bowl takes place on February 2, with Jennifer Lopez and Shakira taking the stage for the highly anticipated Halftime Show.
