FCC Received Over 1,000 complaints Over J.Lo’s Halftime Show

According to a new report from TheHill, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) received more than 1,000 complaints from viewers upset by some of the content featured in the Super Bowl halftime show earlier this month that was headlined by singers Jennifer Lopez and Shakira.

WFAA, an ABC-affiliated station in Texas, obtained a copy of the trove of 1,312 complaints from the FCC through a Freedom of Information Act request. According to the news service, the complaints span from nearly 50 states, with the most coming from Texas, which reportedly had almost 140.

A number of the complaints criticizing the halftime show took aim, in particular, at the performances put on by Lopez and Shakira.

“Jennifer Lopez‘s performance at the Super Bowl halftime show was extremely explicit and completely unacceptable for a event where families including children are watching,” one viewer from Utah wrote.

“I had to send my children out of the room so that they weren’t exposed to something they should not have seen,” the viewer continued. “She should not be allowed to perform at something like that ever again. Shame on the NFL for allowing that performance to happen. I am not sure how to censure her or those involved in choreographing that performance but it was disgusting.”

TCO reported March for Life President Jeanne F. Mancini was just one of many who felt the Super Bowl halftime show featuring J.Lo and Shakira was way too raunchy for what was supposed to be a “family friendly” event.

J. Lo made her appearance sliding down a stripper pole, and the performance featured lots of skimpy outfits, overtly sexual booty shaking, and tight studded leather outfits.

. Ugh. We can’t have something that little kids can watch? Embarrassing for everyone I’m with- looking away, etc. Friends son got distracted by smart dad so he wouldn’t see it. 🙁 We can do better!

Many agreed.

Everything about this halftime show was overtly sexual and perverse. It will be celebrated as the best halftime show yet. Gross.

Agreed! The half time show keeps getting weirder every year.
We need a solid country western or rockandroll band, something patriotic

You call it dancing and entertainment.

I call it what it is: softcore porn

Our society is really crumbling.   

Christian leader Franklin Graham issued a statement expressing his disappointment in the Super Bowl halftime show.

Graham wrote:

I don’t expect the world to act like the church, but our country has had a sense of moral decency on prime time television in order to protect children.

We see that disappearing before our eyes. It was demonstrated tonight in the Pepsi Super Bowl Halftime Show—with millions of children watching.

This exhibition was Pepsi showing young girls that sexual exploitation of women is okay. With the exploitation of women on the rise worldwide, instead of lowering the standard, we as a society should be raising it.

I’m disappointed in Pepsi and the NFL.
