Following Miley Cyrus’ tongue-wagging twerking performance during MTV’s Video Music Awards just weeks ago, over 150 complaints were lodged with the FCC, seen in documents posted on The Smoking Gun, according to a Sept. 15, 2013 Hollywood Reporter story.
During her Aug. 25 performance, Cyrus stripped down to a latex bra and panties and began dancing around singer Robin Thicke, while bending over in front of him, twerking, and stroking his crotch with a big foam hand.
Among the complaints to the FCC, one from Florida read, “GOD HELP THIS NATION and those who desire more filth in our living rooms. DO something and earn your pay,” the Reporter notes.
A complaint from Connecticut swore that Cyrus’ gyrating and twerking resulted in Thicke displaying “a slight erection which can be easily noticed through his pants.”

Still another angry VMA viewer wrote, “Had I wanted my family to see a hooker perform a live sex show, I would have taken her [sic] to Tijuana… When she [Cyrus] started throwing her hand and arm in a manner to simulate a male j****** off, that was bad enough. Then she continued to fondle herself with a foam finger and then she backed up against her male co-singer’s genitals in a doggy-style position and humped him like a b**** in heat,” according to the documents obtained by The Smoking Gun through the Freedom of Information Act.
Nevertheless, the website reports that each of the complaints will have little effect because the FCC only regulates broadcast networks and not cable stations such as MTV.
