Grammys Blasted By Anti-Porn Group Following Cardi B’s WAP Performance! An anti-porn group has come out slamming the Grammys for allegedly ‘contributing to the sexual exploitation of women’. The National Center on Sexual Exploitation (NCOSE) shared a statement after the ceremony on Sunday (14 March).The group lashed out at the Grammys for what it believed to be a particularly racy pole-dancing performance by Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion for their hit single ‘WAP’.

The statement reads: “The National Center on Sexual Exploitation (NCOSE) says the CBS Grammys broadcast contributed to the sexual exploitation of women by glamorizing prostitution and stripping.

“The performance by Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion showed the two women and backup performers wearing thongs and lingerie, dancing on a stripper pole, and crawling around and twerking on a bed together.”

The statement was accompanied by a comment from the centre’s Senior Vice President and Executive Director Dawn Hawkins, who expressed his disbelief after the performance was aired on CBS.

He said: “In a performance that could have been cut from a hardcore pornography film, CBS allowed a glamorization of stripping and prostitution to be broadcast in front of a national audience – a portion of which were children – for no other reason than for TV ratings.

“Despite the ‘popularity’ of the song performed by Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion, CBS should have never allowed this kind of explicit performance to happen at the Grammys.”

Before  performing“WAP,” Megan delivered “Body” and “Savage” with roaring ’20s spectacle, complete with a tap dancing break and lots of tight choreography. Cardi B followed suit with a neon-fueled version of her solo track “Up.”

It is not the first time that Cardi and Megan have faced the heat over their No. 1 hit. Moments after “WAP” hit streaming services last year, conservative politicians and commentators denounced the pair for the song’s explicit lyrics.
