Did You Catch The Feminist Twist On This Super Bowl Performance?

The Super Bowl is about the last place on the planet you'd expect to hear a feminist statement.

They used their performance to sing a more or less straightforward rendition of "America the Beautiful," but changed the lyrics to be about sisterhood.

Check out their performance.
Twitter, naturally, lost its mind in supporting the women. The Super Bowl has become a political flashpoint, as it's never been more complicated to be a patriot. Or a Patriot, as it were.

Here are some of the best reactions.
