Parents Television Council: NBC Enabled M.I.A.'s Obscene Gesture
PTC, Parents Television Council, an organization known for being a super power television watchdog claims that NBC failed the American public by enabling M.I.A. to flip everyone off during the Super Bowl halftime show.
Look out: Overprotective Parents (OPP) - I mean the Parents Television Council - have demanded that NBC and the NFL reprimand and punish M.I.A. for her offensive gesture during her performance.
Go to your room M.I.A., You're f&cking grounded!
Parents Television Council President Tim Winter released a statement on the incident, saying, "It is unfortunate that a spectacular sporting event was overshadowed once again by broadcasting the selfish acts of a desperate performer."
The moment in question happened when M.I.A. joined halftime headliner Madonna for a performance of the song “Give Me All Your Luvin.” There was no wardrobe malfunction, nothing like that glimpse of Janet Jackson's nipple eight years ago that caused an uproar and government scrutiny. Instead, in front of some 110 million viewers on NBC and uncounted others online, she flipped the bird and appeared to sing, "I don't give a f&ck" at one point, though it was hard to hear her clearly.
The NFL blames NBC for not being on the ball to censor it before the move went live, but NBC blames the NFL since they are responsible for the contents of the half time show.
He said, she said, a playground fight involving friends, siblings, and really aggressive, pompous, condescending parents.
In case you missed it, here's the video of M.I.A. flipping off the camera during the Super Bowl Halftime Show. You might want to show it to your minor children.
