Surrounded by the male troupes, she was criticized for her provocative choreography and outfit during her performance. According to British regulator Ofcom, many viewers complained about JLo’s outfit. Not just that, many went to Twitter and expressed their opinions stating how it was not appropriate for a show to showcase a performance that serves entertainment to families.

One Twitter user posted, “Totally inappropriate. Put some clothes on and keep your bits to yourself.” 

Another shared, “This is supposed to be a family show. I’d be ashamed to Jennifer Lopez’s family. What is she wearing? She’s an artist, not a prostitute.”

While the audience was furious and shared their thoughts, Ofcom’s spokesperson shared “If we consider the potential that the broadcasting code wasn’t abided by, there is potential we would investigate. But it’s too early to speculate,” to stabilize the situation.

Lopez in an interview with The U.K. radio station, BBC Radio 1, defended herself stating, “I think people are so much raunchier than I am.”  She continued to share,

“I feel like I’m so tame. [I] wore it at Billboard and Britain’s Got Talent said they wanted exactly the same. So I thought I’d wear the outfit in black.”

“No one complained at Billboard. I think people just like to talk. It was a bodysuit. A lot of performers wear that these days. It is standard stage clothes. I’m not going to walk down the street like that!” she concluded.

She recently made headlines for throwing lavish three-day wedding celebrations with her beau Ben Affleck after getting married in a private ceremony.
