Lil Nas X triggered a wave of online criticism for kissing a male dancer during the BET Awards, but over at the FCC … it was basically crickets. Sooo, sign of progress?
TMZ’s obtained the complaints filed to the Federal Communications Commission and there were merely 3 of them made in after Lil Nas’ much-talked about performance of “MONTERO (Call Me By Your Name)” … which he buttoned with the kiss.
One viewer from the Bronx wrote to the FCC around 1 AM … “I was very disturbed to see 2 men practically having sexual in the stage when the awards show is supposed to be a family show. It’s ridiculous and children and adults are being forced to endure this. Unacceptable and I will be unsubscribing from BET network. DISGUSTING AND DISTURBING!!!!!!!!”
