In the wake of Shakira and J Lo's widely praised Super Bowl halftime show, the FCC received 1,312 complaints from viewers who were upset with the alleged sexual nature of the performance, CNN reports.
Some of the complaints came from parents who said they felt they were watching a "porno show" or an "X-rated strip club performance." CNN provided a few examples of the complaints that were received:

"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?"
"A disgusting spectacle was on display during the halftime show of the Super Bowl yesterday and I'm sickened by the idea that this was broadcast in to so many homes in America and possibly around the world," said a viewer from Oregon. "Selling sex seems to be the job nowadays, despite human trafficking and the Me Too movement. Shame on Fox."

"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.
