You’d have to be living underneath a rock to not remember that incident that took place at the NFL Superbowl about 8 years ago. Janet Jackson’s historical nip slip happened while she was performing alongside Justin Timberlake in the Superbowl. Jackson was fined $550,000 and suffered a tremendous blow to her career. However, a court ruling has come out stating that that FCC wrongly fined Janet Jackson and CBS for the nip slip. Read more inside about this case.
How has this decision been made? The court has come to find that the FCC failed to properly inform CBS about the changes in indecency enforcement prior to the performance and had â€œarbitrarilyâ€ decided to change its rules when dealing with Jackson and the network. I’m not going to turn this into a race thing but anyways…
CBS is happy about this ruling and has stated, “We are gratified that once again the court has ruled in our favor. We are hopeful that this will help lead the FCC to return to the policy of restrained indecency enforcement it followed for decades”. I’m sure Janet is happy as well. However, this is still something that will always follow her career no matter what the court has ruled.
Are you happy about Janet’s vindication?
