Reaction from nut jobs on the right and the left to Beyoncé’s Super Bowl 2013 performance has been beyond comprehension. There’s a problem in America when everyone from PETA to Laura Ingraham have displayed their jealousy of the singer by attacking her.

Sunday night Twitter largely was ablaze with praise for her performance, including myself. A sexy, leather clad Beyoncé, who reunited with Destiny’s Child, turned out a phenomenal performance and critics agreed it was one of the best half time shows ever! This was reinforced by the fact the Super Bowl 2013 drew the third largest number of viewers in its history.

Let’s return to the crazy talk against Beyoncé, which demonstrates how screwed up Americans have become and highlights the extremism taking root in our country. PETA condemned Beyoncé for wearing a leather leotard made of lizard, iguana and leather.

"We would take a bet that if Beyoncé watched our video exposes, she'd probably not want to be seen again in anything made of snakes, lizards, rabbits or other animals who died painfully. Today's fashions are trending toward humane vegan options, and Beyoncé’s Super Bowl outfit missed the mark on that score."

Ah, PETA focusing on the important issues of the day. Beyoncé’s outfit didn’t “miss the mark” neither did her performance. Last time I looked, this is America and she can wear what she damn well pleases.

Speaking of Beyoncé’s attire, her sexy leather costume and performance really ruffled conservatives’ feathers, sending their morality meters literally into the red.

Conservative commentator Laura Ingraham tweeted:

“Very family-friendly dancing S&M by Beyoncé. What every girl shd aspire to. #waronwomen.”

Granted before I saw Ingraham’s tweet, I tweeted “Beyonce channeling little S&M. Just saying not hating. #SuperBowl
