FCC Received Over 1,500 Complaints About The Jennifer Lopez-Shakira Super Bowl Halftime Show
Unlike any other Super Bowl halftime before it, Jennifer Lopez and Shakira on stage during Super Bowl LIV garnered a lot of attention and a lot of it was criticism because it was being deemed too sexy.
Like every other year, many people take their time to sent emails to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to voice their displeasure about something during the Super Bowl broadcast that upset them.
According to SBnation, there were more than 1,500 complaints regarding this year’s performance by Shakira and Jennifer Lopez.
Here are some of the best or worst complaints:
This years show was extremely provocative in the female body moments and the simulated patting of J Lo’s derrière is not for family television.
My family was very excited to watch the Super Bowl tonight. However, I was not prepared to explain to my 11 yo daughter why Jennifer Lopez was dressed so scantily or why she kept grabbing her crotch. My daughter was asking if she was feeling sick from having so much skin showing. Maybe next year the NFL can warn parents the show may not be appropriate for children so we can have them leave the room.
The super bowl half time show was gross I am 50 and ashamed i saw that evil crap on tv . What about all the children that watched that. Then j lo had the American flag touch the ground. There should millions of dollars in fines.
The halftime show last night was beyond inappropriate. Shakira laying on her side gyrating like sex, Lopez on a stripper pole, Lopez bending over to expose her butt crack, both performers grabbing their vaginas, Shakira grinding her butt against some tinfoil wearing man’s penis. This was incredibly offensive. My children were watching.
The halftime show was disgusting. The close ups of J-Lo’s vagina and anus was yucky. There was a stripper pole and a simulated orgy

Degrading and utterly disgusting, far beyond “community standards” of decency, and much worse than the Jackson incident. We live in eastern Kansas, but have no TV, thus took our 9 yo daughter to our local small-town sports bar to watch the game. She’s a farm girl, so understands sex, but could not stop asking “Mama, what’s all this?” Totally confused, and as she emerges into her young womanhood, absolutely abused. My wife and I did our best to use it as an object lesson, but when half the guys in the bar are voicing their disapproval and just looking down at the table … you know something is very wrong. Fox, and perhaps Pepsi, deserve a massive and painful fine so that nobody ever tries this barf-worthy nonsense again.
What few community standards remain these days were stripped away (no pun intended) by “J Lo” (should be “J LOW”) at the half-time show shown on television for the Super Bowl on Sunday 2 FEB. My complaint is that this display is inappropriate on national television especially when children are watching. FIX IT.
The vagina grabbing, demeaning of females has to stop. This is a family show not a sexual predator show. Next time just show Robert Krafts message parlor videos!

Gross, inappropriate, designed to titillate, patently offensive, sex for sex’s sake
Just in case some of those people are reading this article, they can watch the performance again.
