Haters gonna hate! Ciara's plunging dress from her performance of the national anthem at the College Football Playoff Championship on Monday, January 11, made jaws drop — and not necessarily in a good way.

More than 500 people liked the tweet, while hundreds more replied (passionately agreeing and disagreeing).
