NFL And NBC Apologize For M.I.A. Flippin' The Bird During The Super Bowl!

| Filed under: TV NewsZportzM.I.A.

We're still recovering from all of our excitement in last night's Super Bowl halftime show!! Madonna was ah-mazing!!

And M.I.A.?? She pissed a lot of people off!!

Not as scandalous as Janet Jackson, she flipped the camera off during the halftime show. Something she hadn't done in rehearsal (obvs)…

So, as the angry phone calls pour in, the NFL and NBC have both issued apologies:

NFL: The obscene gesture in the performance was completely inappropriate, very disappointing and we apologize to our fans.

NBC: We apologize for the inappropriate gesture that aired during halftime. It was a spontaneous gesture that our delay system caught late.

And we wonder… why did she do it?? Was she just rebelling?? Or was she pissed off at something??

Thoughts???

    og come one. we didnt even noticed f u guys didnt mentioned it…. it was the euphoria… whats the big problem..come on…



  2. 2

    madonna madonna was really huge.LMFAO SAID SHE SA PURE GENIUS



  3. 3

    What a dissrespectful whore



  4. 4

    only in america people make a big deal of this shit. jesus fucking christ.



  5. 5

    I didn't notice it either. Too bad they have to make a big deal about it - now the half time show will be all about MIA! Maybe that is why she did it.



  6. 6

    Who the fuck cares why she did it. It does not matter. Kids watch that show, lots of them. For god sakes. She is a horrible kunt that had 1 semi popular song out and she thinks she's the shit. Always bashing america, even though she makes her money here, and lives here, and then acting like some poor rebel that has struggled all her life. What a fucking joke. She reminds me of Stella McCartny, priviledge bratty ass bitch who acts like they have been put upon by the world.



  7. 7

    disrespectful piece of shit. who is this bitch? I've never heard of her and she has confirmed I don't need to know who she is. I hope Madonna ripped her a new one and never works with her again.
    Good nite Stupid

    Re: amurocci – You're a fucking idiot. Yeah, only in america. HA. For god sakes, in other countries you are killed for shit like being in the company of someone that is not your husband, or arrested for saying negative racial things(all of europe). This was a sporting event that started at 6:30 pm EDT. Kids watch this, so while it is no big deal, in a bar, or in private, on television in the evening with kids watching??? Get your head out of your ass.



  9. 9

    Have you seen the video she does and sings the same thing you can watch it on youtube and it's uncensored there so little kids can see it there too
    Big deal
    She didn't flip off America that's just what you think because you think everything is always about you
    Grow up !

    That is just MIA proving she is badass…lord knows it is not her rapping skilz…



  11. 11

    Re: hoochpit – Kids wouldn't even notice it if their parents didn't make such a big deal out of it.



  12. 12

    How about she did it because……she's a talentless hack who was LUCKY to be on stage with Madonna………



  13. 13

    Anything to draw attention to yourself….what else is new from the entertainment community.

    Truth be told….Madonna is pissed because this debacle is the topic of the halftime "entertainment' instead of her. Ha!



  14. 14

    Put a viewer discretion advised notice right at the beginning of the program - and tell these parents to shut the fuck up going forward, from here to eternity. If your precious child didn't happen to see that traumatic split second moment of emotionally devistating obscenity - for a variety of reasons - they sure as hell can't avoid it today considering it's plastered all over every media source out there right now. How come it's OK for everyone else to spread it and broadcast it? They were foaming at the mouths for something to bitch about in the first place, no matter how trivial - just for an opportunity to get on their soap boxes and pound their chests about something.



  15. 15

    Re: jenny_bop – If she was so talentless why did Madonna want to work with her in the first place and more than on one song. And she also has has the 9th and 52nd best albums in the 2000s according to Rolling Stone . So suck on that !



  16. 16

    She is a pig. Why is it that all these stupid whores get opportunities handed to them and then they act like total low class trash once they are there.

    Makes me sick.



  17. 17

    Re: rosebud99 – That is EXACTLY why she did it. The headlines are all about it! She is a THUG!!!!!



  18. 18

    Re: HELLO1111 – she is a disrespectful, low class pig. If she was so great she would have been the main show, not a back up singer.

    I wouldn't be bragging she was the 9th best and 52nd best album in the 2000's. LOL

    Ask anyone in the industry and they will tell you that the only spot that matters is #1.



  19. 19

    She couldn't share the stage with people who are more talented so she used the finger to get attention. She's an idiot.



  20. 20

    Just another hood rat paid to much money! Was that suppose to be cool to all the bad ass's that she tries to portray herself as???
    My Vote! PIECE OF SHIT!!!



  21. 21

    Who cares? The whole half-time show sucked. I was more offended at Madonna's hideous slow-mo granny dancing. She moved slower than a constipated turtle.



  22. 22

    ROFL, the family, the family!!! Yeah, any kids watching the superbowl last night would have been surrounded by drunk ass parents, who probably didn't even notice what happened. She does the exact same thing in the video…no biggie. Plus, don't football players have the highest crime rate in pro sports? Why is this family council not concerned with that?!?!?!



  23. 23

    relax people. it's just a finger!! no need to sweat over petty things.

  24. ElleK says – reply to this


    24

    Stupid. Who cares? These parents who got their panties in a bunch need to get a life and chill. I was watching on a 70" TV and didn't notice, I doubt any children did.



  25. 25

    These folks should get a bloody life, a lot more important to complain about.



  26. 26

    Americans are overly sensitive. Violence is great, sex is a sin. Profanity is deadly.



  27. 27

    Re: jenny_bop – Although I don't like M.I.A's personality, I think Madonna was the lucky one here.



  28. 28

    Didnt NBC do any homework on MIA



  29. 29

    NBC



  30. 30

    Typical low-life trash that got a record deal. Ugly nasty ass bitch.



  31. 31

    Look at all you nerdy prudes… Its just the fucking finger who cares? She's not angry at anyone it just went with the lyric that she was singing 'We dont give a sh**". It was obviously symbolic of that.. it was probably just a natural instinct.. FUCKING hell Americans are so WEIRD! GET OVER IT
    Even you perez "and we wonder… why did she do it?" as if she has some grand fucking reasion.. she just did it.



  32. 32

    Re: mattdeejay
    It was on National TV you twit and little kids were watching. It's people like this whore that ruin everything good and clean in America. She is a piece of shit, nasty bitch!



  33. 33

    Is there ever a "real reason" for trash people like her to attempt to keep it together and actually entertain instead of being the center of attention by doing something "shocking" or wrong? It never seems to be the case. They do it so they can talk about it later with their friends and pump up their "street cred" — it's horseshit. She just dragged everyone on those stages down to gutter level instead of being honored to be up there, performing.



  34. 34

    This is the big fucking DEAL!? I didn't even notice it!!!! Lol



  35. 35

    Re: martygras – So if you are such a role model and superb parent how come you call someone a piece of shit, nasty bitch ? Your kid would've never even noticed it if you wouldn't have made a big deal about it. If a child sees the finger on tv an then suddenly the parent rushes in and cover his/hers eyes and said never show this gesture well the kid will want to know what it means and why can't he/her show it. Don't make it a big deal



  36. 36

    Re: JennyJJJ – Are you serious a backup singer really ? First of all she's a featured artist just like Nicki Minaj and she'll be featured on Madonnas new song ”Birthday song” so yeah I doubt she's a backup singer and backup singers don't share the stage with the main performer. Lastly when you want to complain about someone who's done something you think is rude don't be rude yourself by calling her a low class pig. If you only knew her life story I doubt you would dare to call her that. She became a someone from no one. Who are you ?



  37. 37

    Looks like she was giving everyone a big Fxxx you, not a very smart way to get a point across lets all sit back and watch her fadeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee awayyyyyyy……dumbass!



  38. 38

    she did it because she is a skanky lowlife, classless piece of shit…send her back to the shithole of her mother that she came from…and from her father's ass she plopped out of…



  39. 39

    Re: HELLO1111
    First of all…..rude….suck it….really? Not necessary.
    Next, this is the superbowl, a family event. The middle finger is NOT something to be aired during family broadcasting. I don't care if others think Americans are "prudes"….it's just rude!! In case anyone forgot, the middle finger is the F bomb….a big old F bomb. If you want to see/hear the F bomb, watch HBO, etc. There are rules in public broadcasting, like it or not. There is a time and a place for everything and this "entertainer" (and I use that term loosely) forgot her place and the rules. She isn't above them just because she is famous.
    Next, why not keep it a little classier? Are we really at a point where we want our "role models" to be trashy? More Kim Kardashians for everyone!! Seriously, I am a huge music fan, but again, a time and a place for everything and she was flat out inappropriate. After all the crap that went down from "wardrobe malfunctions" I was glad to see a show where there was not an obscene amount of skin flashing.
    I know there will be those who disagree with what I have said, but the bottom line is this: the superbowl is family broadcasting and needs to maintain a certain amount of decency so the show can still be appropriate for all ages.

    Re: jenny_bop – Have you watched the video for Give me all your luvin ? In the video she clearly shows the finger and says shit and it's available to see for all ages. And parents shouldn't make a big deal out of a finger it's just a finger when shown while other fingers are held down it has a meaning which is actually not that like dropping an F bomb because an f bomb expresses that someone is angry and means it rudely but when she showed the finger she didn't look like she was about to assault someone or anything else. But like I said watch the video if it wasn't in the music video it wouldn't be in the live performance. Over and out



  41. 41

    Good for her, Myself and millions of others never heard of her before this so it's a great career move. The network loves the attention too. If they didn't they could easily stop it by making the performer sign the contract that withholds ALL monies paid out for violation of terms. DONE DUMMIES>



  42. 42

    honestly, I didn't even notice…. and I was watching!!! I was in a house full of kids… there were probably about 10 of them ranging from the ages of 4-13, and they were too busy playing with one another to even give a shit about the game, in fact how many children do you know who have the attention span to not only sit there and watch a half time performance, let alone even notice that MIA put the middle finger up…and I highly doubt it even registered to children what i meant, And HELLO did you not see some of the commercials that aired.. they were racy as hell… and if that doesn't have parent's more upset, then hell I honestly believe they are making a mountain out of a mole hill.. this is why kids are bullied so often now a days, their parents want to coddle them and treat them like bubble wrapped pansy's! If as a parent, you are teaching your children right from wrong, & do as I say not as I do, you wouldn't be so worried about this… PARENTING STARTS WITH PARENTS, not celebrity "role models"



  43. 43

    i couldnt even see it but if she did that she needs to be fined a HUGE FINE huge huge fine millions its inappropriate



  44. 44

    Only watched Madonna, missed this act, not sure who she/he?



  45. 45

    Re: teeter totter – if you had "only watched MAdonna" you would have saw her.. she is featured in Madonnas New Long.. "Give me all your love" and this was part of the Madonna performances.. guess you didnt' really even watch.

    Re: jenny_bop – The M.I.A incident is NOTHING because families take there kids to movies that are violent rude & racey anyway,,,,example (the final Harry Potter movie) or (AVATAR) the world has become too safe and sanitized for its own good & besides there where so many young kids & teenagers that watched madonnas EROTICA & JUSTIFY MY LOVE) videos in the early 1990s that had themes of sex & S&M VIOLENCE & LETS NOT FORGET her 1990 documentary (TRUTH OR DARE/IN BED WITH MADONNA) that showed her performing oral sex on a beer bottle For the WHOLE freaking world to see on T.V…..I don't have a problem with pop culture just hypocrites that's all!!!!!!!!!
