The Winter Olympics in Sochi Russia, the event that practically everyone has been talking about, is finally here.
With all the controversy surrounding Russia’s gay propaganda law, the safety of the athletes and the safety of those attending the games it’s no surprise that everyone’s got an opinion on them.
Friday night’s opening ceremony welcomed all the athletes brought to Russia while simultaneously bringing us ugly sweaters, master ballet performances and what appeared to be an acid trip projected across the floor.
Viewers took to Twitter and gave us the rundown on their personal opinions on what some have called the “gayest” Olympic opening ceremony there ever was.
From the looks of it we’re guessing it was a lot.

Does anybody have a map?
Google’s homepage has been turned into a rainbow array of winter athletes, and Ellen approves.
I love Google’s home page today. Every athlete deserves the right to be who they are. It’s called equality. Google it. — Ellen DeGeneres (@TheEllenShow) February 7, 2014
P.S. Does Putin even know who T. a. T. U. is?
STOPTHEPRESSES… Are the Russian athletes walking out to a T.a.T.u. song?!?! #OpeningCeremony

Then NBC’s Matt Lauer felt the need to educate the audience on the most important fact of the night.
Ohhh, so that’s what YOLO stands for! Thanks Matt! #OpeningCeremony

We can only hope.
Please tell me the background music for this spectacle is Putin’s iPod on shuffle… #openingceremony

This is what it looks like when your dog eats a box of crayons and then throws up on the carpet #OpeningCeremony

Along with some expected confusion.
An all-male ballet team marching in purple uniforms… Dear Putin, I think you just violated your own gay propaganda laws. #OpeningCeremony

In the end, we’re kind of disappointed, too.
I’m disappointed with the lack of vodka drinking and that Russia is neglecting their proud soviet heritage #OpeningCeremony
