Conservatives Go Full Freak-Out Over Hot Latina Super Bowl Halftime Show

At Sunday’s Super Bowl, Latina singers and entertainers Shakira and Jennifer Lopez wowed the world with a stunning and age-defying performance. J-Lo is 50 and Shakira is 43 and the ladies brought it home exactly the same as they did when they were in the 20s.

As a 50-year-old woman who groans way too much about my achy bones, I am good and thoroughly chastised.

As impressive as these ladies were, however, conservatives just couldn’t handle it. They couldn’t handle the sexiness of these talented women and they couldn’t handle the symbolism behind every single thing they did on that stage.

The Symbolism Behind Shakira and J-Lo’s Halftime Show

The show featured some of the best music ever made by Latina women, but it also highlighted important issues. For example, it depicted cages with children in them, an obvious message to those who aren’t speaking out against the immigrant children who are being caged at the border.

One of the children in a cage was Jennifer Lopez’s 11-year-old daughter, Emme Maribel Muñiz, who we all now know if a talented singer in her own right.

And when J-Lo reminded everyone that Puerto Ricans are U.S. citizens.

Washington Post did a great job with this video that explains some of the meaning behind highlights of Shakira and Jennifer Lopez’s halftime performance.

Conservative Twitter Reaction to Super Bowl Halftime Show

As you could have expected, seeing two sexy Latinas dancing and singing was more than conservative Twitter could handle. The crowd who is totes OK with the president’s wife being a nude soft-porn model objected strongly to Shakira and J-Lo.

The world’s biggest hypocrite, Franklin Graham, had this to say.

“I don’t expect the world to act like the church, but our country has had a sense of moral decency on prime time television in order to protect children. We see that disappearing before our eyes. It was demonstrated tonight in the Pepsi Super Bowl Halftime Show—with millions of children watching. This exhibition was Pepsi showing young girls that sexual exploitation of women is okay. With the exploitation of women on the rise worldwide, instead of lowering the standard, we as a society should be raising it. I’m disappointed in Pepsi and the NFL.”

Liberal Twitter Reaction to Super Bowl Halftime Show

However, best believe that liberal Twitter wasn’t having the conservative hypocrisy. No way, no how. And a couple of high-profile conservatives praised the ladies.

Watch the full performance below.

Here’s what I know: all of these conservative men complaining were having to put towels or magazines in their laps. Fact.
