"I'm going to the Super Bowl!"

The young Kansas City Chiefs fan who was falsely accused of wearing "blackface" by Deadspin was spotted on Sunday at Superbowl 58 in Las Vegas to watch his favorite team compete against the San Francisco 49ers.

"I'm going to the Super Bowl," said 9-year-old Holden Armenta in a livestream from the Skin in the Game podcast.

Armenta, a young boy from Oklahoma, arrived at the game wearing the Native American headdress that woke Deadspin reporter Carron J. Phillips tried to cancel him over. He wore that and fresh new face paint, although this time Armenta went with red, white, and yellow instead of black and red.

Phillips had initially attempted to cancel the 9-year-old child over the face paint by accusing him of wearing blackface during a KC Chiefs game on Nov. 27. He published a photo of only one side of Armenta's face and titled the article "The NFL needs to speak out against the Kansas City Chiefs fan in blackface, Native headdress."

In a video taken outside the most televised game in the world, Holden predicted that his beloved KC Chiefs would win 31-28 against the SF 49ers. He where he was in attendance with his family. His father was seen wearing Armenta's legendary outfit, a Native American headdress with red and black face paint.

Another male in the video was seen wearing red and black face paint as well.

Deadspin offered no apology for the hit piece on a child and instead discreetly updated the headline. The Armenta family recently announced that they are suing the publication and reporter Carron Phillips.
