It wouldn’t be the Super Bowl half time show with out a little controversy would it?
During last night’s awesome performance by Madonna, one of her co-stars, M.I.A, flipped the bird at a camera for the world to see.
NBC released a statement apologizing:
“We apologize for the inappropriate gesture that aired during halftime,” NBC said in a statement. “It was a spontaneous gesture that our delay system caught late.”
A second apology came from the NFL, who blamed the whole thing on the network. “There was a failure in NBC’s delay system,” the league said in a statement. “The obscene gesture in the performance was completely inappropriate, very disappointing, and we apologize to our fans.”
Was it that bad? Did most of you even catch it until you heard about it later or re-watched?
