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

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.”

“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.”

“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.

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.
