Pop star Ciara received universal praise for her rendition of the national anthem at the College Football Playoff Championship game on Monday night, but the same cannot be said for her dress.

Campus Insiders reporter Bonnie Bernstein summed it up during her live tweet of the telecast:

Dear Ciara. You’re stunning. But this is a National Championship Game. Kids are watching. Cover up.

— Bonnie Bernstein (@BonnieBernstein) January 12, 2016

Many, however, did not share her sentiments, implying Bernstein was a hypocrite.

@BonnieBernstein How dare she partially reveal her body when children are preparing to watch 21-year olds destroy each other for no money!

Bernstein soon found herself on the defensive.

Truly am amazed at how people take a tweet (that includes a compliment!) & wanna make it about race. Seriously. Grow up. Watch the game.

Fox Sports 1 reporter Jason Whitlock came to Bernstein’s defense, and was soon being slammed himself.

I’m 100 percent serious. I’m not a prude. Love nudity. Not at national champ game. Inappropriate. https://t.co/LoTzEqBQQJ

No one offended. Thought it was a classless/clueless/thirsty look for her. Wanted her in best light. Not offended. https://t.co/WEMFsaDUcV

Ciara, who is dating NFL quarterback Russell Wilson, with whom she has been very public about their celibate relationship, obviously was proud of her wardrobe choice, posting this photo after her performance.
