Thumbs down FCC Gets 1,300 Complaint Calls Over Shakira & J-Lo Half-Time Show!

LMFAO!!!!!

I can already picture said complainers. Lazy, miserable and married women.
Take your ass for a walk or a run!
The funny thing is... The complainers weren't even interested in the actual game. They just happen to be sitting there when the Halftime Show came on and noticed how more "attentive" their men became at the Festivities. They weren't mad about the bare skin. They were mad about the colorful Skin.

Meanwhile my wife was sitting right next to me singing along.

So damn stupid. I'm so tired of people getting offended over every thing. If you dont like something, dont read it, dont watch it, get over yourself.....

Who moved this thread to Politics and Why????

I find it very odd how threads by members can be moved in minutes with no warning or reason and yet lately this entire site has been plagued with SPAMMERS and several Spam posts in multiple threads that remain for DAYS. Some are still there....

Maybe Twitter is down and so they don't have anything Trump related to discuss? Or maybe they are trying to drum up eyeballs to their page?

Dunno.

Terrible music and watching a grandma rub her crotch wasn't my thing. I never thought to pick up a phone and complain about it though.

As a percentage, 1300 complaints is nothing compared to number of viewers. With that said, I certainly enjoyed the show but I saw the look on the wives faces at the Super Bowl party I attended and many were embarrassed. My kids are grown but I don’t think I would have wanted them to watch the half time show if they were young. No one was naked but it was suggestive enough that I wouldn’t have wanted, for example, my 8 year old daughter to emulate.

They show more skin and dancing on America's Got Talent.

I'm a parent too and there was ZERO offensive about that Halftime Show.

Really? The Shakira tongue action was impressive but I wouldn't want my teenage daughter "rocking" those moves. Different strokes and all that

I could tolerate the tacky nastiness if their music wasn't such shit.
