Rihanna's Super Bowl Halftime Show Resulted in Over 100 Complaints to the FCC - How Does That Compare to Prior Years?

Rihanna‘s performance at the 2023 Super Bowl contained a pregnancy announcement, a multitude of hits and some Fenty Beauty promo. According to people who wrote into the FCC with complaints, it was also outrageously sexualized.

According to The Hill, 102 people wrote to the Federal Communications Commission to complain about the “Disturbia” icon’s set during the Halftime Show.

Complaints highlighted things like “inappropriate touching and dance moves,” “perpetual air humping and glorifying being a stripper” and “genital grabbing.”

It was even referred to as “pornographic content,” according to TMZ.

Rihanna is hardly the first artist to take spark complaints to the FCC after performing at the Super Bowl Halftime Show. In fact, it’s fairly common that at least a couple issues pop up every year, even when you might think a performance is fairly tame.
