Nancy Grace’s Nipple Slip Traumatized Kids
OCTOBER 26--The fleeting appearance of Nancy Grace’s right nipple during a recent “Dancing with the Stars” episode prompted about a dozen viewers to write the Federal Communications Commission to beef about the prime time wardrobe malfunction.

The indecency complaints, a selection of which you’ll find here, were received by the FCC following the September 26 broadcast of the hit ABC program. At the conclusion of Grace’s Quickstep performance with partner Tristan MacManus, the HLN host’s breast migrated out of the top of her dress.

This brief exposure prompted some Americans to contact the FCC to express their outrage (though it is hard to tell which correspondents were writing solely for the laughs). The complaints were released today by the FCC in response to a Freedom of Information Act request. The names of complainants were redacted by agency officials.

Angered that Grace “displayed her pornographic breast and nipple on national television,” a Los Angeles resident argued that she and ABC should be “fined for this disgusting and godless display.” Writing from Arlington, Virginia, another viewer charged that Grace knew that her breast might pop out. When Grace’s “nipple private" emerged, the viewer added, it “scared my children.”

warning, images of said 'slip' at link. I think her normal show traumatizes kids much more than this did.....

1. It traumatized me.
I've barely gotten over her nostrils.

2. If they're so worried about their little angels seeing this
Why are they letting them watch 'Dancing with the Stars' in the first place.

The "costumes" the women wear are extremely revealing, without or without a "wardrobe malfunction".

6. My breasts have never popped or flopped out of anything. I guess it's the advantage
of small breastages. Why is it so hard to contain those puppies?

9. TWELVE letters of complaint.
For a show that gets 16 MILLION viewers. The number of people offended enough to complain to the FCC? Fewer than one in a million. For purposes of comparison here, the appearance of Nick Griffin (leader of the British National Party) on the BBC's Question Time drew 8 million viewers (which, considering that the UK has a bit more than 60 million people? Would be the equivalent of more than 40 million viewers for a US television programme, based on relative populations)...and had 290 complaints to the broadcast regulator, Ofcom (of course Nick Griffin is far more genuinely offensive than a nipple).

10. The poor breast was just trying to escape from a dress she bought 3 sizes too small.
It was gasping for air.

I don't see what the big deal was. Hell, her nose was more offensive than her nipple.

no, wait, we are! Americans are such prudes. These asshats would rather have their children watch all the violence on TV than a harmless breast. Good grief!

15. Godless display?
Pornographic breast? Sheesh; hyperbole much? Guess these idiots forgot who they believe created the human body.

I don't watch DWTS so I missed the festivities but from what I've seen of out takes this nipple malfunction is pretty tame compared to a lot of the skimpy attire that the dancers wear.

This is beyond silly.

nipple but a piece of the skin-colored bodice lining?

31. Yeah, the "godless display" one came from Los Angeles.
If it had come from, say, Mobile, Alabama I might be more inclined to take it seriously, but right now I'm picturing Seth Green typing it out after taking a bong hit.

20. Yeah, no kid should see a nipple, certainly no infant should.
;-)

Reminds me of a cover of Playboy I saw prominently displayed in a store in Latin America: showing large bare breasts with the statement "no apta para minores" stamped across it, obviously by a government not quite up to censorship. In English: "not appropriate for minors."

how many of you saw that on the nite it originally happened?

I didn't. I wasn't looking at her boobs, were the people who saw it looking at them?

If this had happened to one of the younger ladies or one of the pro's would the same outrage be shown?

32. Where's their Godly sense of forgiveness?
As much as I despise Nancy Grace, I don't think she nip slipped on purpose. I think it was an accident because of the activity she was engaged in. Her costume was not all that revealing.

These people need to get a life. They need some REAL problems to worry about.

37. Those sound like obvious parodies of RW comments.
But of course RW comments are so extreme that it's hard to tell real ones from parodies.

I wasn't aware there was a rank system for those.

Hers have been around long enough to have at least made Nipple Sergeant by now, I would have thought.

I wonder how many thousands of people have complained to the FCC about the bias and lies that have dominated the airwaves since Reagan abolished the Fairness Doctrine and Clinton failed to make good on his campaign promise to restore it.
