The 45-year old singer played a concert in Mawazine Festival in Rabat, Morocco on May 29 in front of 160,000 people with the focus on seductive hip movements. According to the legal documents obtained by TMZ, an education group filed a lawsuit, claiming that Lopez’s show that featured skimpy outfits and suggestive stage moves “disturbed public order and tarnished women’s honor and respect.”
As soon as the concert went air, political parties and local media started to react negatively. The Minister of Communication Mustapha Khalfi was criticized for allowing the performance to air on public television. Even it sparked the calls of the resignation to the minister which he reportedly declined but decided to discuss the issue with television’s ethics committee.
Mustapha Khalfi further said “What was broadcast is unacceptable and goes against broadcasting law.”
