“I received complaints in my office, and rightfully so, about Cardi B and the Grammys,” Grothman shared on the House floor Thursday, UPROXX reported. “They wonder why we are paying the FCC if they feel that this should be in living rooms across the nation.”
“I realize that Kamala Harris has used her fame to promote this performer, but I assure the FCC that millions of Americans would view her performance as inconsistent with basic decency,” he added. “Wake up, FCC, and begin to do your job! The moral decline of America is partly due to your utter complacency.”
The “Bodak Yellow” hitmaker also responded to Grothman’s comments on Twitter.
“This gets me so mad ya don’t even know!” Cardi tweeted to her millions of followers. “I think we all been on the edge this week since we seen police brutality back to back including watching one of the biggest case in history go down DUE to police brutality but wait ! This is [what] state representative decide to talk about.
The superstar performance at this year’s Grammy Awards with Megan Thee Stallion resulted in more than a thousand complaints to the Federal Communications Commission for its risque nature, the outlet noted.
