FCC Receives 1,300 Complaints Over Jennifer Lopez, Shakira Super Bowl Halftime Show

"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," one person told the FCC.

All appeared well on the field at Super Bowl LIV. Until halftime. That's when some in America apparently grew offended by the booty shaking and pole dancing during the show featuring Jennifer Lopez and Shakira, according to NBC News.

The Federal Communications Commission received more than 1,300 complaints about the halftime show, the agency told NBC News on Wednesday, adding that it was in the process of posting the complaints on its website.

The complaints were first reported by ABC affiliate WFAA in Texas, which said it obtained the information through the Freedom of Information Act. The most common complaint seemed to be about the appropriateness, with some suggesting it should have had an R rating attached to it.

The FCC received 94 complaints regarding Adam Levine's 2019 halftime show, during which he exposed his bare chest, according to Deadspin. And in 2004, the halftime show with Janet Jackson's wardrobe malfunction yielded 540,000 complaints, a record, the Times reported that year.
