It appears that family dinners across America were ruined on Thursday night.
Donning a tasseled leather skirt, the 21-year-old did her own rendition of “Walk Like A Champion” before stripping down to reveal her red two-piece “hot pants” for her 2013 hit single “Come & Get It.”
After the performance (video below), disgruntled viewers took to Twitter and slammed NFL for choosing Selena Gomez for the halftime show.
While some thought the Spring Breakers star, unlike Beyonce, wasn’t really “NFL material” and found her lip-syncing annoying, others were just downright angry with the fact that it was Thanksgiving and Gomez’s costume and dance moves were way too inappropriate for family viewing.
Here are some reactions:
