Miley Cyrus

Primetime Bangerz Antics

Could Cost NBC Bigtime

8/5/2014 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Miley Cyrus NBC Special
NBC's primetime special of Miley Cyrus: Bangerz Tour has the FCC hot on the tail of the Peacock.

The show -- which aired July 6 -- has triggered a slew of complaints with viewers griping the network allowed obscenity on the air.  TMZ has obtained some of the complaints, targeting stripper costumes and Miley rolling around in a bed with half-naked men and women.

The stunt that got a bunch of complaints ... Miley grinding against a costumed Abe Lincoln.

The FCC is investigating whether the content violated its rules against broadcasting "sexual or excretory activity."

Worst case scenario ... NBC could be fined.

Why would anyone want to see that disgusting crap? Miley Cyrus needs to be arrested and locked up for good. She's a drug addict so at least force her into rehab. Not only all that but she allowed her dog she supposedly cared so much about to be attacked and killed by coyotes. What a horrible person.

NBC is a liberal hack organization, so it's no big deal for them. Anything goes.

She needs to tone it way down. But I think she is trying to be the next Madonna.

Maybe if networks stopped showing performers who do not comply to the code of conduct these things would not happen. No one want to see Miley Cyrus pleasuring herself on TV. I used to like her, but she certainly is not the role model that I would pick for anyone.

NBC KNOWS she pushes the envelope and should have had an iron-clad contract as to what she could or could not do on TV and if she violated the terms then she didn't get paid or she paid any fines sanctioned by the FCC - she and Beiber keep pushing the limits and no one does anything about it so I don't feel sorry if NBC or any other backers get fined
