People Are Upset About the Super Bowl Halftime Show - Really?

With the Super Bowl weekend just gone, it seems more people are talking about the halftime show with Shakira and JLo than the actual winners of the game. And, to be honest, it's kind of ridiculous.

Across multiple social media channels, posts were shared - and continue to be - from people appalled by the outfits the two Latina superstars wore, the dance moves they performed, and the apparently suggestive nature of the performance as a whole.

Many NFL fans berated the organization for allowing such a show to take place, complaining that it had ruined what used to be a family-friendly event. Here's the thing, though - the NFL is hardly the beacon of family-friendliness, nor has it been for a while, as I talk about in this week's show.

Topics on the menu include

  • The hypocrisy of many NFL fans
  • The numerous examples of where the NFL has shown their lack of family-friendly ethics
  • The irony of the complaints about Shakira's and JLo's outfits
  • Why we need more strong, culturally proud performers doing their thing

Settle back for a chat about all that's wrong with those who'll quickly condemn the two artists at this year's Super Bowl halftime show, while happily supporting an organization that consistently shows how morally corrupt it is.
