President Obama said “Beyoncé could not be a better role model for my girls. She carries herself with such class and poise and has so much talent.” Michelle Obama told People magazine that if she could trade places with anyone in the world, it would be with Beyoncé. Beyoncé may be feeling the presidential love, but not so much from a host of Facebook commenters.
Sara Carlson Malott said she used Beyoncé’s performance as a teachable moment for her 12-year old daughter.
“My daughter understands that she doesn’t need to shake her behind in front of millions of people to be influential. We were not impressed with the raunchy way women were portrayed during Beyoncé’s halftime show,” said Malott.
Scott Rosekrans said he “kept trying to put dollar bills in the dvd slot of his tv.”
“The NFL needs to realize that a flashy stripper dance put on by a celebrity doesn’t make a good choice for a halftime show,” stated J.J. Gilpin.
There were many others who shared the same sentiment, but not First Lady Michelle Obama who tweeted “Watching the #SuperBowl with family & friends. @Beyoncé was phenomenal! I am so proud of her! –mo”.
It looks like Beyoncé gets to keep her role model title to the First Kids after all.
