At least in terms of the number of FCC complaints.But what they lack in volume, they make up for in quality.
WFAA in Dallas obtained complaints filed to the Federal Communications Commission after the Super Bowl halftime showing featuring Lopez and Shakira. There were 1,312 of them, according to the report.
By comparison, Jackson drew the wrath of more than 500,000 angry viewers who expressed their outrage to the FCC over a quick flash of an exposed breast at Super Bowl XXXVIII in 2004.
There was no partial nudity during February’s halftime show. But some viewers found it too sexy regardless.Here are some highlights of the 1,312 complaints and where they originated. A search of the complaints document reveals 391 mentions of the word “crotch.”
According to WFAA, the complaints originated from 49 states. The one state not mad about the multitude of crotch sightings? Vermont.
The angriest state? Texas topped the list with 140 complaints.
By comparison, Adam Levine’s exposed torso (and nipples) during last year’s Maroon 5 Super Bowl halftime show garnered just 55 complaints. People were mad at that show for different reasons.
