It’s been two weeks since Rihanna’s Super Bowl halftime show and we’re beginning to see the fallout.
During her performance, Rihanna drew complaints from angry viewers on the Internet over her crotch grabbing.

Apparently, over 100 people found Rihanna’s performance offensive enough to write letter to the FCC.
According to TMZ, 103 viewers complained to the FCC about RiRi’s Super Bowl halftime show.
TMZ obtained the 103 complaints made to the Federal Communications Commission — a U.S. government agency that regulates television — regarding this month’s Super Bowl broadcast … and almost all of them had to do with RiRi’s halftime show.
One viewer in California was angry that children were being exposed to Rihanna’s halftime show.
“I don’t care what someone worships but children shouldn’t be exposed to pornography and as an adult I don’t wish to see it … Where has decency gone? How about respect for others and self?”
Another viewer from Utah complained that the show so indecent that they couldn’t bare watching.
“This year the halftime show was so indecent I had to turn off the TV because of the pornographic content.”
Another viewer was angry about all the crotch-grabbing going on.
When RiRi did manage some dance moves, they drew complaints too … with one viewer in Florida complaining, “She spread her a** cheek at the crack. She rubbed her pants where her labia were three times.”
Despite all the complaints, Rihanna’s halftime show was a success with over 118 million people tuning in.
