1,300+ Complaints About JLo and Shakira’s Super Bowl Halftime Show Reach FCC’s Ears

By Tess Farrand, Associate Content Editor

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) received over 1,3000 complaints about Jennifer Lopez and Shakira’s provocative Super Bowl Halftime show.

The two Latin divas performed medleys of their popular songs, but it was anything but family-friendly, and plenty of people voiced their disappointment as a result.

KTLA5 reports:

Some of the complaints, which were sent to CNN by FCC officials and first obtained by WFAA, came from parents who felt their children were exposed to a “porno show.” Other adults thought the show encouraged sex trafficking.

Some people were upset no public warnings were given before the show, which one viewer said was less a musical act than an “X-rated strip club performance.”

Movieguide® applauds the thousands of people who took action to show that this kind of “entertainment” isn’t acceptable for such a widely watched television program.

The week following the Super Bowl, Movieguide® warned:

If Movieguide® did a comprehensive analysis of Sunday’s Super Bowl halftime show, the performances would receive a -3 for excessive immorality, depicted promiscuity, sexual perversion, and sexual immorality. The show was not suitable for children and is at minimum considered excessive for adults.

Complaints to the FCC even targeted Pepsi, the Halftime show’s title sponsor, with threats of boycott.

“I will be boycotting Pepsi and their products, and unless you can guarantee a decent half time show next year, we will boycott the Super Bowl.

Although many parents seem to be concerned, Lopez herself brought her daughter up on stage for one portion of the performance. In fact, the complaints only represents less than one-thousandth of Super Bowl viewers.

As Movieguide® previously stated:

Parents must train up their children to reject perversion and dwell on what is good, true and lovely. This means that parents, themselves, must reject hypersexualized content like the Super Bowl halftime show, and show their children that entertainment does not have to come at the cost of exploitation.
