Twitter Litter: M.I.A. Flips Off NFL Again, Ted Nugent Kills Stuff

The NFL now is demanding that M.I.A. pony up $1.5 million for tarnishing its solid reputation with that flick of her finger. But M.I.A. is not having any of that crap!

Are we clear on that?

Continue for Drake on a skateboard and Ted Nugent eating deer.
