Fergies National Anthem at NBA AllStar game is mocked

Some people weren't feeling Fergie's patriotic spirit at this year's NBA All-Star-Game. 

The 42-year-old songstress was mocked for her rendition of the National Anthem at Sunday's game at Los Angeles' Staples Center.

Late-night host Jimmy Kimmel and others in the stadium could be seen snickering while Fergie put her spin on the song, and even athletes were seen getting in a few laughs.

To make matters worse, Beyonce was also in attendance at the stadium. 

She had been criticized for singing over a pre-recorded version of the National Anthem at Barack Obama's second inauguration only to wow journalists when she sang it at the Super Bowl press conference in 2013. 

Fergie's performance was quickly labeled 'the worst rendition ever' by those who could not believe she chose to sing the 'Star-Spangled Banner' in such a way. 

'What IS this f*ckery?? #Fergie,' asked another user using a gif of Prince.

It was an eventful NBA All-Star Game that saw many not too thrilled with comedian Kevin Hart's strange opener that ran longer than 15 minutes. 

He even cracked awkward one-liners after almost every player's introductions. It was the perfect add on, however, to Fergie's performance.
