The FCC Is Investigating Complaints Made About Miley Cyrus’ ‘Obscene’ Bangerz Tour Concert Special

A shockingly obscene performance by Miley Cyrus? On my television? Why, I never!

TMZ reports that Miley’s Bangerz Tour concert special, which aired last month on NBC to abysmal ratings, has triggered a slew of complaints, and the FCC is now investigating.

According to TMZ, which claims to have obtained some of the complaints filed with the FCC, people are absolutely up in arms about the obscenity of it all: “stripper costumes,” a segment in which Miley “rolled around” on a bed with both half-naked men and — shock! — half-naked women, banana penises probably. And let us not forget: “Miley grinding against a costumed Abe Lincoln.” Won’t somebody think of the children?!

One question: had none of the offended parties turned on a television or picked up a magazine or logged onto the internet even just once during the last year? What were they expecting from a Miley Cyrus concert?

While the FCC looks into the complaints and decides whether or not to fine NBC, Miley is presumably walking down the street in some ill-conceived ensemble, absolutely not giving a f*** about any of this, thinking only of what weird things she can post on Instagram next.
