And 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."Many parents were left fuming after watching the show with their kids. Nearly half of the 1,300 complaints mentioned that the halftime show was inappropriate, especially for children.
"The half time show was very sexual in nature. I have never seen so many sex poses outside porn magazines," a New York viewer said. They also complained about "sexy tongue wagging" and "butt shaking.""This is not appropriate family entertainment as the Super Bowl advertises. It was appalling! And then having young girls join the spectacle," a Kentucky viewer said. "No wonder there is sex trafficking when you call this family entertainment. And where's the Me Too women? Do you not see the hypocrisy?"
"Jennifer Lopez's gyrating on a stripper pole with her butt and her crotch smack in front of my eyes, my husband and children was an affront to women and children and violates your rules," one person from Tennessee said. "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.
"I am very offended by the performance of porn on a supposed family occasion," yet another viewer said. "I will be boycotting the Super Bowl and especially the vulgar half time shows that have progressively gotten worse through the years."across several channels and streaming outlets, according to Fox. So while less than one-thousandth percent of viewers had something bad to say about the show, the complaints were strong worded -- and it's safe to say some people were pretty mad.

It was totally inappropriate for the Super Bowl. Hopefully they will be more family friendly in years to come.v Never mind all the men on the field in tight pants that show everything. Superbowl is about the human body and what it can do. These whiners are repressed and likely would rather watch violent movies about hurting others. What a messed up society.
Poor babies Yes I agree AC/DC play the half time!!!👹 It was watched by millions. Is 1300 people too whiny to change the channel really relevant? These ppl that are complaining needs a pair of glasses or 2....... that performance was so entertaining that I couldn't take my eyes off the TV, maybe this is why these people are complaining they couldn't do the same 😆😆😂😂
Why don't these people go crawl under a rock and leave all the normal people alone. Well now .. How many complaints have you received TO DATE about one of your employees? And why hasn't she been fired for her broadcasted racist rant FIREJESSALLEN Complaints about Shakira? Ridiculous. Which is why I have offered to perform next year. Here’s my letter to the NFL
Hmmm... and how many complaints did the CBSC get about Jessica Allen from the Social? cancelthesocial

Probably 1300 jealous 50 year old women What a joke. I enjoyed the halftime show. 1300 complaints ...out of how many million viewers? . Who cares i liked it so did my kids🤗 and my wife! why is this okay yet when Adam Levigne removed his shirt last year he was shamed? So 1300/99.9M is 0.0013%. To be fair I will say only 1 percent of those who objected filed a complaint. Bringing us to 1.3 percent of viewers with an issue. A quick google I found a scientific American blog post that 2 percent of people think the earth is flat... Let that sink in
So stupid!! It was so good. Both of them did absolutely nothing wrong. If u didn’t like it, then change the channel!!!! Half time show is the only part I watch and it was awesome. How many complained about how adam Levine looked? Can we all complain about the complainers will that even things out lol Just wish people would police themselves! Don't like it, change the blessed channel. All you have to do is push a button, FFS.
That’s not that many, haha

Whiners! Out of a billion people. Quick to the outrage machine batman and lets end their careers 1300. Out of how many millions of viewers? This isn't news. This is the continuation of a BS narrative the MSM is insisting on pushing. Say what you want about Trump he isn't wrong when it comes to fake news. gfy
Out of how many MILLIONS of viewers? How oh how is this a story. You'll notice I didn't use a question mark. Why? My only complaint is that they were overdressed and didn't have a tickle fight. Why the f*** is this news? That's 0.001% of the people that watched it. Next years half time performance circa 1950s. Next year the complainers can all dress as Nuns. Wait Nuns are more exciting than some of these hypocrites who have watched, watch way more racier things.
Jennifer Lopez and Shakira did a great job...light..fun

Calm down, Karen. I loved it! But that’s just my own view. Yeah I would agree but simply because these could be powerful role models and instead are selling themselves, as many women have been doing for many years. Women are still using sexuality to promote themselves. So a few people out of the millions that watched it complained. I guess that’s the people who couldn’t find their remote to change the channel or power off their television. Surprised they were able to file a complaint. Must have been difficult task for them. 😜
SuperBowl HalfTimeShow Let me guess....trump supporters? It's called remote control. You use it to change the channel or turn off the TV 🙄 My complaint is it was to short Just goes to show people will complain about anything and everything.

Jewish groups criticize Amazon Prime’s ‘Hunters’ Holocaust portrayal as ‘foolishness’The criticism stems from an aspect of the TV show that depicts a fictional human chess game created by Nazis in concentration camps forcing Jewish people to kill each other. Yeah, so, it's a tv show? Some TV shows take liberties while depicting ancient Rome. Heavens, what shall we do? VERY Insensitive media! Sarcasm follows:⬇️ But, oh well, it's just about the Jewish✡ people....they'll get over it. Just like 'The Holocaust was no big deal.' 🆘️ They just need to 'get over It.' BIG ❓ When does the media ever give a rip about Jews or Christians? Ans.NEVER!
