This is really sad to hear.

No! Not even a little bit!
When something as oddly unsettling as a 35-minute blackout occurs during the one of the year's most watched broadcasts, it's perfectly natural for the mind to jump to wild conclusions!
"Has anyone seen Tom Hardy lately?! This looks like the work of Bane!"
"The 49ers did it! They found a voodoo priest on Bourbon Street and cast a spell to put themselves back in the game!"
As absurd as those theories are, they pale in comparison to those suggesting Queen Bey's alleged Illuminati ties were somehow responsible!
Now that's just silly.
She didn't signal a secret cult, she paid respect to Jay-Z's Roc-A-Fella Records!
Many best-selling artists frequently give her husband the very same props!
Even NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell agreed. He said:
"There's no indication at all that this was caused by the halftime show. I know that's been out there. … That is not the case from anything we have at this point."
The real culprit behind the blackout?
No ghost, goblins, cults, or Batman villains… It was faulty electrical equipment.
