Maybe our society is becoming less Karen-ish than I thought...

Millions of people enjoyed the Super Bowl Halftime Show with Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Mary J. Blige, Eminem, Kendrick Lamar, and 50 Cent.

However, a few folks had to protest about it.

According to The Hill, only 33 complaints were made to the FCC over the broadcast.

Some of the blowback was about attire. One person cried, "So if 2020 wasn’t bad enough now we get to see a bunch of half-naked women sexually twerking." Another quipped about "scantily clad female dancers who belong in a strip club, not on national TV."

An upset viewer said, "This is terrible entertainment for children," while another whined, "Sexual content of grown hip hop and rap [singers] grabbing their groin and genitals. So offensive to children, the elderly, and families."

As if you couldn't guess, the most complaints about a Super Bowl Halftime Show was the Janet Jackson / Justin Timberlake wardrobe malfunction in 2004. The FCC logged 540,000 complaints.

Shakira and Jennifer Lopez set the most recent high for grumbling in 2020. 1,300 folks took their precious time to contact the FCC about the evils of that performance.
