M.I.A. Flips Bird During Super Bowl Halftime Show; NBC Apologizes (VIDEO)
12:10 am, February 6th, 2012VIDEO
Until people pointed out that guest performer M.I.A. had given viewers the middle finger.
Even though most viewers probably didn’t consider it a big deal, flipping the bird is always a source of media hyperventilation.
Plus, ever since Janet Jackson’s nipple made a surprise appearance for a half-second during the 2004 halftime show, Super Bowl observers (and politicians, advocacy groups, the FCC, etc.) always seem primed to declare controversy.
UPDATE: NBC is now apologizing.
“We apologize for the inappropriate gesture that aired during halftime,” said the network in statement. “It was a spontaneous gesture that our delay system caught late.”
Do you think M.I.A.’s finger warrants controversy?
