Right-wing pundit Charlie Kirk drew ridicule Sunday for calling the Super Bowl’s retro hip-hop halftime performance by artists including Dr. Dre, Eminem, Snoop Dogg and Mary J. Blige — who wore shorts — “sexual anarchy.”

“The NFL is now the league of sexual anarchy,” Kirk tweeted. “This halftime show should not be allowed on television.”

Also performing was Kendrick Lamar, who wore a black suit and 50 Cent, who showed his bare arms and was flanked by dancers showing their legs. Most everyone else was covered from head to toe. Lamar was the only act not older than 45 years of age.

California representative Eric Swalwell, whose state hosted Super Bowl LVI, wondered how Kirk could be comforted.

“You tiny, tiny boy,” he tweeted. “How can we help you?”

Despite his fragility, Kirk, the 28-year-old founder of the conservative nonprofit organization Turning Point USA, appears quite tall. In photos with former President Donald Trump, who’s around 6′3, Kirk seems to be the taller man.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez seemed less interested in understanding Kirk than writing him off as a nut job.

“Like I said, weirdos,” she tweeted.

On New Years Eve, Ocasio-Cortez accused her Republican critics of being “strange and deranged,” sexually frustrated and fixated on her.

It wasn’t just liberals who piled onto Kirk’s complaint. Veteran TV host Piers Morgan, 56, had a laugh at the expense of his much younger counterpart.

“Time for bed, grandpa,” Morgan tweeted at him shortly after 8:30 p.m.

Many celebrities who stayed up late enough to watch the halftime show liked what they saw. Lady Gaga, who performed at the Super Bowl in 2017, was blown away.

“THAT WAS A BOMB OF RADICAL LOVE THANK YOU #SuperBowl HALFTIME SHOW!!” she tweeted. “Incredible!! That’s what it’s all about!!”

Basketball superstar Lebron James called the all-star performance “THE GREATEST HALFTIME SHOW IVE EVER SEEN!!!”

Kirk, and other ultra-conservatives, also got worked up about the 2020 halftime show featuring Shakira and Jennifer Lopez. According to Kirk, those female superstars set “A horrendous example to the millions of young women across the world.”

He was topped by right-wing activist Dave Daubenmire who complained the 2020 show was sexually charged and could have cost viewers a place in Heaven. He threatened to sue the NFL.

“You just brought it into my living room,” Daubenmire raged. “You didn’t tell me there were going to be crotch shots!”

One of Kirk’s chief objectives as a right-wing provocateur is the elimination of what he calls “cancel culture.” Merriam-Webster defines that as, “The practice or tendency of engaging in mass canceling as a way of expressing disapproval and exerting social pressure.”
