Anti-Porn Group Slams Cardi B's WAP Performance At Grammys

An anti-porn group has blasted the Grammys for 'contributing to the sexual exploitation of women'.

The National Center on Sexual Exploitation released a statement following the ceremony on Sunday (14 March).

The group hit out at what it believed to be a particularly explicit pole-dancing performance by Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion for their mega-hit single 'WAP'.

It read: "The National Center on Sexual Exploitation (NCOSE) says the CBS Grammys broadcast contributed to the sexual exploitation of women by glamorizing prostitution and stripping.

"The performance by Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion showed the two women and backup performers wearing thongs and lingerie, dancing on a stripper pole, and crawling around and twerking on a bed together."

This was followed up by a comment from the centre's Senior Vice President and Executive Director Dawn Hawkins, who said he didn't believe the performance had any place on CBS.

He said: "In a performance that could have been cut from a hardcore pornography film, CBS allowed a glamorization of stripping and prostitution to be broadcast in front of a national audience - a portion of which were children - for no other reason than for TV ratings.

"Despite the 'popularity' of the song performed by Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion, CBS should have never allowed this kind of explicit performance to happen at the Grammys."

But despite the outrage caused by the show, Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion weren't the only ones to surprise viewers of the awards ceremony.

Producer James Keach appeared by video ling to accept the award for Best Music Film for his documentary Linda Ronstadt: The Sound of My Voice - accidentally giving Jeffrey Epstein a mention. Yes, really.

However, the 73-year-old accidentally got the names of the film's directors, Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman, mixed up and blurted out the name of the dead paedophile billionaire.

After being informed of his win. Keach said: "Excellent. I want to thank Linda Ronstadt for allowing us to make this movie, Rob Friedman, Jeffrey Epstein."

Sadly for the producer, his particularly unfortunate faux pas didn't go unnoticed by viewers at home, with many sharing their shock on social media.

Writing on Twitter, one user said: "The man that beat Beyoncé and thanked Jeffrey Epstein instead of Rob Epstein... "

Another asked: "Love the dude at the Grammys thanking Jeffrey Epstein, you think his producer was probably p****d?"

"If you're ever feeling down just remember that you aren't the guy who accidentally thanked Jeffrey Epstein for his win at the Grammys," put a third.
