FCC Investigating NBC’s Miley Cyrus Fourth of July Special

Aug 7, 2014  •  Post A Comment

The Federal Communications Commission is investigating whether Miley Cyrus’ Fourth of July special on NBC violated the agency’s rules against broadcast profanity or indecency, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The investigation comes even though the special, “Miley Cyrus: Bangerz Tour,” only sparked three complaints.

According to TMZ.com, the complaints centered on Cyrus’ stripper costumes, as well as her grinding against a performer dressed as President Abraham Lincoln.

One parent complained that the rating — PG-13/TV-14 — allowed the show to get through his TV filter, writing, “I am offended, appalled and ready to start taking public action to remove this garbage from our television.”

Another complaint said the program, which aired July 6, was a “disturbing” show for a broadcast airing at 9 p.m. on a Sunday.

NBC declined to comment.

  1. What’s the big deal? No one watched it anyway!!

  2. Is that. Of the case with N. B. C. Overall except the tonight show? “Unwatched by most… And the few who bothered were disturbed by what they saw!!!” . Yup… The new motto for NBC Prime Time!

  3. Did TMZ provide you that dang-close-to-NSFW photo of Cyrus’ Netherlands?

  4. Hey, guess what everyone? If you find it offensive, then turn it off. Stop trying to censor everything that is on TV or radio or internet! You people make me sick! (Almost as sick as Miley and her disgusting outfits)… I don’t care for it either, but remember that we are supposed to have a freedom of speech and expression here! I know you don’t want your kids to see it! I applaud you for that. Remember, it’s your responsibility to censor your kids viewing habits, not the governments and not mine!
