Mark Levin shreds Super Bowl for ‘soft porn’ halftime show, asks what happened to #MeToo?

Mark Levin, talk radio host and host of Life, Liberty & Levin on Fox News, denounced the “raunchy” Super Bowl halftime show that showcased Latino performers Jennifer Lopez and Shakira.

While the show was widely praised in today’s pop culture, it mimicked a strip show, complete with crotch grabbing and a stripper pole — all the while, as children looked on.

Levin went so far as to call the not-so-family-friendly show “soft porn.”

“That halftime show — you’ve heard a lot about it — to me was really raunchy,” he said. “If I was sitting there with an 8-year-old or a 12-year-old, or even my kids now, my grandkids, watching that halftime show, I would have been embarrassed, It was disgusting.”

The show was highly sexual, and J-Lo looked incredible for a nearly naked woman of 50. At the same time, she let her 11-year-old daughter, Emme Maribel Muñiz, join her on stage.

“It was soft porn,” Levin said, citing the costumes worn and the crotch grabbing.

He asked a very relevant question, “Whatever happened to the #MeToo movement?”

“I don’t understand this. This is what the NFL puts on at halftime?” Levin continued. “This is what Hollywood cheers? This is what the entertainment industry cheers?”

Of course, the NFL opted to showcase OJ Simpson, widely seen as a double murderer, even if a pricey legal dream team did get him off for killing his ex-wife and a friend of hers, in an opening tribute to the game.

Levin’s concerns about the sexuality of the halftime show didn’t even touch on the political messaging, like when J-Lo busted out the Puerto Rican flag, which many saw as a middle finger to President Trump, or the “Latin children in cages.”

As for the hypocrisy Levin highlighted, Lopez posted a video on Instagram with her daughter before the halftime show began.

So, just before she took to the stage to effectively objectify women as little more than the sum of their scantily clad bodies, Lopez talked about little girls using their voices.

“These moments were captured just minutes before we hit the stage last night,” she wrote. “All I want my girls, the little girls on stage with me and all over the world to know is how to use their voices and be proud of everything they are. We are proud to recognize that all of us together are what makes this beautiful country truly great.”

The left’s response to the controversy was to say the performance was “empowering,” that Lopez and Shakira were simply celebrating their bodies — hell, they even tried to legitimize the use of a stripper pole by suggesting it’s an effective fitness alternative.

This being the same cabal that sells open borders and a disarmed public as a positive step forward.

One thing is certain, Levin was far from being alone in the concerns he spoke of:
