Nearly three dozen couples were married by Queen Latifah during the 2014 Grammy Awards, and it’s caused a lot of negative reactions toward CBS for allowing the marriages to be between both gay and straight couples.
Fifteen of some of the worst reactions were posted by the Huffington Post, even some from celebrities. Be warned that they’re probably just going to make you angry, so if you’re presently in a good mood you should refrain from reading them. The most common complaint was from viewers with families expressing that having gay couples married during the awards show wasn’t family friendly. Which is surprising. Not that viewers complained about it, but that another part of the Grammys didn’t cause more controversy for the same reason.
If you missed Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s performance during the Grammys, you should check out the ridiculously sexual clip. In fact, the song was about drunken sex between Jay-Z and Beyoncé with a half-naked choreographed dance by Beyoncé to go along with it. There were complaints about it but not nearly as many and not even close to the same extent of criticism. There was actually more praise then anything. Which raises the obvious question, how is that more family friendly then two men or two women kissing and being overwhelmed with joy? How is seeing Beyoncé half-naked and hearing “I get filthy when that liquor get into me” better for your kids?
But let’s be real, they’re all just jealous they weren’t married by Queen Latifah!
