Singer Ciara was blasted on social media for wearing an “inappropriate” dress during her rendition of the National Anthem at the Alabama-Clemson championship game. Christian boyfriend Russell Wilson didn’t have an issue with the dress though.

Many, including Bonnie Bernstein, who worked at ESPN for many years, found the dress incredibly offensive. She pointed out that children were watching and the singer should “cover up.”
Dear Ciara. You're stunning. But this is a National Championship Game. Kids are watching. Cover up.

Jason Whitlock, who is also a former ESPN employee, said the game was not the right venue for “nudity.”

More from Twitter over Ciara being dragged for her Championship game dress:
"How dare Ciara wear a dress that shows cleavage to a game that has cheerleaders in short skirts dancing on the sidelines!"

Stop bashing @ciara for her dress at the national championship.. We saw Janet Jackson's nipple at a super bowl once so y'all chill

How you could listen to Ciara's thin ass voice and think that the dress was the problem is completely beyond me.
