According to reports, the Federal Communications Commission received a series of complaints about Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine‘s shirtless Super Bowl LIII performance.

The complaints note how many found it uncomfortable to view the unexpected half-naked performance and how the show revealed a male-female double standard in reference to Janet Jackson‘s infamous “wardrobe malfunction.” Back in 2004, the songstress’ career took a major turn when her nipple was exposed during her halftime performance with Justin Timberlake. The FCC fined CBS $550,000 USD after they received more than half a million complaints.

Additionally, the FCC also received complaints from parents that were not so pleased that their children saw the trailer for Jordan Peele‘s upcoming psychological horror-thriller film, Us.

Take a look at some of the complaints the FCC received for the Super Bowl LIII broadcast below.

In case you missed it, The Eric Andre Show‘s Kraft Punk recently landed an Adult Swim TV special.
