The Latina superstar co-headlined the Super Bowl halftime show with plenty of moves including a rope dance.
As some debated whether they loved or loathed the Super Bowl halftime performance with Jennifer Lopez and Shakira, others quickly turned to social media to discuss one specific moment.
You know, the one where Shakira stared straight into the camera and made turkey-like sounds with her wiggling tongue.
Many people didn't get the possible cultural significance of the moment.
The Latina superstar co-headlined the Super Bowl halftime show and offered up plenty of moves including a rope dance and some guitar playing.
But it was her few seconds of wagging her tongue at the camera which launched plenty of memes.
But not everyone found it to be funny.
Along with all the jokes was also a possible explanation about what it meant.
"Debated whether to chime in, but so many disrespectful memes: Shakira wasn't just being funny with the "tongue thing," one person tweeted." What she did is called a zaghrouta, an Arabic tradition used to express joy, excitement, celebration. Typically heard at weddings. FYI, she's part Lebanese."
Shakira's father is Lebanese.
