We already saw a massive fine and change to all broadcasting after Janet Jackson’s “wardrobe malfunction” during the Super Bowl. I wonder what the FCC is going to do about MIA flipping the bird to the world during the halftime show of Super Bowl XLVI? No doubt this has been planned by MIA for a long time. You don’t just say “I don’t give a s***” and flip everyone the middle finger without knowing that you’re going to get a huge reaction. That’s exactly what she was looking for — plenty of publicity. She’ll get it, but she’ll also be known as the person who flipped the bird during the Super Bowl halftime show from now on.
Here is a video of the incident:
Based on a few tweets, it seems like a few NBC affiliates were able to dump the incident, but plenty of people still saw it.
