Critics have accused the Red Hot Chili Peppers of not performing live during the Super Bowl halftime show on Feb. 3, but I still think they put on an amazing show either way!

From Beyonce to Britney, some of the world’s biggest pop stars have been criticized for not performing live — but has their lip syncing really made their performances any less entertaining? Some very observant Twitter users put a damper on the Red Hot Chili Peppers‘s Super Bowl performance when they noted that Flea‘s bass guitar wasn’t even plugged into anything. Obviously this isn’t the kind of “unplugged” performance the world wants to hear, but regardless, I was thrilled to see that the aging rockers still know how to put on a helluva show!

Two steps forward, one step back. At least that’s what we learned on Feb. 2, when Coke’s multi-language Super Bowl commercial — the first to feature a gay couple — drew the ire of many ignorant Twitter users, who posted hateful reactions to the gay dads in the ad.

Oh, Twitter people. We can always count on you to sour the mood when something like Coca-Cola’s beautiful commercial breaks boundaries by featuring the first gay couple in a Super Bowl ad.

The famed former Jets player stole the show at the Super Bowl when he rocked a fur coat — what did you think of his major fashion statement? VOTE.

For those unfamiliar with Joe Namath, he’s always had a very flashy sense of style, (which helped him live up to his bold nickname, Broadway Joe) — and at 70 years old the former quarterback and Super Bowl winner proved that he’s certainly still got it as he rocked a fur coat to the 2014 Super Bowl on Feb. 2 at the MetLife Stadium in NJ. Seeing the former Super Bowl III MVP’s style swagger is nothing new — in fact, Joe had an affinity for rocking fur coats, so the fact that he rocked his signature look was no surprise to his fans!

Coca-Cola Super Bowl Ad: Disgusting Hateful Reactions

Shockingly, Coca-Cola’s beautiful ad celebrating American diversity provoked a storm of haters tweeting that all the non-English speaking voices in the ad should ‘Speak American.’

Coca-Cola aired their new commercial during the Super Bowl, titled “It’s Beautiful,” but it brought out the ugly side of a disgusting number of prejudice commenters on Twitter. The ad was a celebration of American multiculturalism portraying citizens from all different backgrounds — races, ethnicities, skin colors — as well as the first gay family ever to be shown in a Super Bowl ad. Scenes of Americans from all different walks of life were caught on film while “America the Beautiful” was sung in several different languages. It was a touching and inspiring representation of America’s exclusiveness, but the reaction proved that there are still far too many ignorant people out there.
