Viewers direct BRIT Awards outrage at raunchy model

Broadcasting authorities in the U.K. have been inundated with complaints from viewers outraged by the raunchiness and profanity at the BRIT Awards on Wednesday (24Feb16).
Controversial moments during the broadcast of the British music prizegiving included singer Adele swearing live on air and an outfit worn by model Sadie Pinn, which left little to the imagination when she cuddled up to hosts Anthony McPartlin and Declan Donnelly.
Staff at the Office of Communications (Ofcom) have already received dozens of complaints from viewers about the racy event.
“We’ve had 66 complaints to date,” a spokesperson for Ofcom tells WENN. “The majority (around 50) related to model, Sadie Pinn’s, outfit. Six of the complaints related to bad language.
“Ofcom will assess complaints against the Broadcasting Code, which sets standards for the content of TV and radio programmes, before deciding whether to investigate or not.”
Performers at the ceremony, which was held at London’s O2 Arena, included Drake and Rihanna, who delivered a steamy performance of their single Work, Justin Bieber, and Lorde, who performed a tribute to rock icon David Bowie.
