Fergie had the unique privilege of singing the National Anthem ahead of the NBA All-Star game on Sunday.

She tried to sing it, at least.

It’s no secret that Fergie is a great signer with tons of hits. Who doesn’t sing Fergalicious at the top of their lungs in the shower every now and then? But this was a travesty. An absolute abomination. You could almost hear all of America looking on saying, “Come on Ferg. You’re better than this.”

At least Draymond Green was having a good time.

But since this is 2018 and everything now devolves into a Twitter fight online, Fergie’s rendition of the National Anthem promptly became America’s Sunday night fodder.

Lots of people commented on how downright horrendous the performance was.

But plenty of perfectly good leftists just couldn’t let it sit at that. They had to take it a step farther and say that this shoddy rendition of the National Anthem is what our country deserves, given our recent political divides and strife over Anthem protests.

Twitter even created a news moment for people to discuss the matter, asking, “Is Fergie’s rendition of the national anthem what ‘the US deserves?'”

Others thought Fergie’s performance was a “call to action and a cry for justice.”

Others saw it as an ode to Trump’s America.

So to all those people who thought Fergie finally “got all of America to agree” on something, think again. This is 2018. We only know chaos. And Jimmy Kimmel’s wily grin.
