The Federal Communications Commission received 1,312 complaints after singers Shakira and Jennifer Lopez performed during halftime of Super Bowl LIV.

Shakira and Lopez’s routine included belly dancing, pole dancing, and other sexually suggestive acts which led to a torrent of criticism from viewers who said the show was far from family friendly. Hundreds of people submitted complaints in formal notices to the federal government in response to the performance, according to WFAA.

The article goes on to state the following:

“The show was not appropriate for a general audience. It was sexually explicit and would have been considered soft porn not many years ago,” one Wyoming viewer wrote.

WFAA reports that they “obtained the records through a Freedom of Information Act request.”

From WFAA:

“I do not subscribe to The Playboy Channel, we do not buy porn for $20 a flick, we simply wanted to sit down as a family and watch the Super Bowl,” wrote a viewer from Spring Hill, Tenn. “God forbid we expected to watch football and a quick concert but instead had our eyes molested.”

For some viewers, the outrage was about more than just costumes and dancing. It was about parenting.

“As a father of 2 teen girls I feel obligated, at this point, to file a complaint as I am at my wits end,” a man from Maine wrote. “That “show” should have been reserved for late night cable TV … As a society we are talking out of both sides of our mouths and confusing kids. We need to do better, much MUCH better. Please help put a stop this disgraceful type of behavior being pushed on our children.”

A Texas viewer wrote: “The Super Bowl’s half-time act was NOT family friendly in any way.”

“I applaud Shakira and Jennifer Lopez for being in amazing shape and having great voices, but that show was 100% about sex and NOT even remotely family friendly,” wrote a woman from Virginia.

The report says complaints were lodged from 49 states, with Texas topping the list with 102 complaints.

Vermont lodged no complaints.

Next year, “No pole dancing, no nudity, no crotch grabbing, no indecent costumes. Just good music. Could be inspirational or uplifting or even patriotic,” a man from Indiana suggested.
