Jennifer Lopez is all about shaking it, popping it, showing off her skin, and singing her heart out.
But in Morocco, some people are not having it and are angry that her performance at a music festival in Rabat was allowed to be aired on national television.
According to TMZ, a lawsuit is being brought against the “Booty” singer and the Moroccan Culture Association by an education group because her May 29th performance at the Mawazine festival in Morocco was just too darn sexy for the public’s eyes.
We’re talking her and her dancer’s behinds, skin-baring bodysuits, the dancing…in other words, “all the hallmarks of what we’d call a typical J.Lo show.”
The group is bringing forth a lawsuit because her performance “disturbed public order and tarnished women’s honor and respect.” They say it was “unacceptable” and a “breach of public decency,” and are even calling for the country’s communication minister to resign, according to local media.
Gossip Cop also notes that the citizen who filed a complaint called her performance a “sex show,” with “deliberate nudity” and “obscene acts and signs.”
On May 30th, Minister of Communication Mustapha Khalfi even wrote on Twitter, “What was broadcast is unacceptable and goes against broadcasting law.”
TMZ further explained that J. Lo has performed in Morocco in the past without any problems, but that this was the first time her performance has been broadcasted on public television.
Approximately 160,000 people were at the festival itself, where J. Lo was just one of several performers. It is unlikely that she will be found guilty, but nevertheless, if she is, she will face 1 month to 2 years in prison.
