Groupon caught a whole lot of flack for its Super Bowl commercials playing philanthropy (for deforestation, saving the whales and the plight of Tibet) for laughs in connection to group deals. The company launched a subsite to make donations to those causes, but at least on Sunday, neither the ads nor Groupon's main site include a link to it. UPDATE: Groupon CEO Andrew Mason responds to the criticism.
