Should Super Bowl ads get political?

Over 100 million people are expected to watch this year's Super Bowl, and those are a lot of eyes tuned in to watch commercials. Some companies take political stances to sell their products and will create a firestorm of praise and criticism. Some feel that commercials should just sell their product instead of being divisive. Others like the positive political message these advertisements spread and helps unite the country. What do you think? 🏈

People need to keep politics out of everything. The country gets daily news about what the president said, what policy is enacted or who is protesting what. It needs to stop. 

Super Bowl commercials are supposed to be light and funny. The commercials are supposed to be entertainment in between the action of the game. No one wants to be force fed a political agenda while they're scarfing down wings. If advertisers want to sell more products, they better keep politics out of their commercials.

How ironic that the people criticizing advertisers for getting political, just happen to be attacking ads that preach togetherness and acceptance. 

A lot of people didn't have a problem when Tim Tebow was the spokesperson for an anti-abortion commercial. So what's the problem with a commercial saying people should accept others for who they are? It spreads a positive message that can go a long way in helping people understand one another. 

Commercials can be powerful if they use politics to bring people together, and if the Super Bowl is the best way to get that message out, football fans should have no problem with that.
