Does the ‘WAP’ drama ever end? Well, apparently not today.
Rolling Stone have just reported the complaints received for Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s raunchy performance of ‘WAP’ at this year’s 63rd Annual Grammy Awards.
As per Rolling Stone, they reference the number of complaints that the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) received in relation to Beyonce’s Super Bowl halftime performance back in 2016, where they reportedly received 47 pages worth of complaints.
However, based on the recent findings, the number of complaints received that year pale in comparison to the number that was received for Cardi B’s track this year.
Below is just one example of the kinds of complaints the FCC received.
“I felt violated with Meghan Stallion & Cardi B’s performance. I am pro sex-positivity abnd body positivity but this performance crossed the line into pornography. Many kids still awake at that time, and even non-consenting adults were unexpectedly staring at pure objectification of women at its finest. Not to mention Trevor Noah’s drooling, sweating, screaming wrap up like he was at a strip club.”
They continued, “I am a massage therapist with deep respect for the human body who found myself crying myself to sleep wondering how this could be allowed on television. And how far this will go next year and the years after that. Art and objectification are opposite sides of the coin. Objectification perpetuates violence against women, maintaining the ripple effect that causes domestic violence, human trafficking, encouraging the consumption of women and then the disposal of them.”
“I’ve watched the Grammys every year since I was 5 years old. It gave me something to strive for as a musician. As a female, I will never again view this program due to the allowance of this performance. since 1980.”
