Super Bowl LVI - Los Angele Rams v Cincinnati Bengals

My older brother thought the Super Bowl halftime show was amazing. So did my youngest uncle. Guess that was the sweet spot for a show that featured a bunch of people my dad’s age: Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Mary J. Blige, Eminem, and 50 Cent. Oh, and Kendrick Lamar.

Well, the good news is that people born in the 80s and raised in the 90s are starting to be the Olds… and, of course, “their music” can’t be offensive. So they aren’t clutching their pearls.

And… since… the collection of artists are all known for strong lyrics, the thought was there were going to be a lot of complaints from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). Amazingly, that was not the case as the halftime show garnered just 33 complaints to the FCC.

Is that a lot? Shit… now I have to look it up.

No. It is not.

Last year when Jennifer Lopez and Shakira shook that ass, it produced 1,300 complaints.


When it comes to the complaints about this year’s Super Bowl halftime show, a handful of viewers didn’t like the attire worn by the backup dancers.

Sorry, Grandma.

One person wrote, “So if 2020 wasn’t bad enough now we get to see a bunch of half naked women sexually twerking.”

Another person complained the show is not suitable for kids who are watching. 

“Sexual content of grown hip hop and rap [singers] grabbing their groin and genitals. So offensive to children, the elderly and families,” a person from Colorado wrote.
