Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s Grammy Awards performance got a lot of attention. People saw WAP all over the world, and some people weren’t ready for it.
The rapping duo received complaints to the FCC for their WAP Grammy performance. TMZ reports that the FCC received more than 80 complaints about the song. That is a lot of people writing in.
Back in the day, when Howard Stern received FCC complaints, he got one at a time; maybe two if the segment was really scandalous. Cardi and Megan caused a whopping 80 people to write in.
Complaints reportedly included language like they danced “as if they were dancing in a strip club.” Yep, both of them should know how to do that. Another complaint from a Texas viewer said Stallion was “barely dressed in a thong” with “naked look-alike legs.”
Pepe Le Pew and Dr. Seuss have nothing compared to WAP, according to those angry viewers. Another female, we’ll call her Karen, said that she’s shocked that Cardi B is allowed to sing about her WAP in the first place.
For the record, the WAP performance was shocking, but it was nothing compared to when Justin Timberlake pulled off Janet Jackson’s gear and exposed her breast during the Super Bowl halftime show. That incident generated 540,000 complaints. So, things could have been much worse for Cardi and Megan.
