Twitter, as the kids say, had no chill this past Sunday when Buick’s Super Bowl 51 ad debuted on televisions screens across America. Although it seems the advertisement received overall positive reactions from fans, Twitter users had a field day over Cam Newton’s starring role.
USA Today compiled a short list of Twitter reactions to Newton starring in the advertisement, and some of them are brutal, following his lackluster performance in last year’s Super Bowl.

That was Cam Newton’s best super bowl performance

This is easily the most effective I’ve ever seen Cam Newton look on Super Bowl Sunday.

Buick itself has also come under fire for featuring vehicles that are not made in the United States after a UAW official took to Twitter to voice her displeasure with the star vehicle choices.
