Cardi B and Meghan Thee Stallion are in hot water after their jaw-dropping performance of the hit song "WAP" at the 63rd Annual Grammy Awards.

According to some viewers, the pair's performance was "not family-friendly" enough to be aired on television.

Grammy host Trevor Noah gave viewers a heads up prior to their performance that things were about heat up in a particularly, not safe for work fashion. Despite the warning viewers took to Twitter to call out the artists, as well as CBS, for airing the"inappropriate" production.

"Hope everyone watching the #Grammys already put their kids to bed!," one person wrote.

"The Grammys, or as I refer to them as, the Slammys had their boring awards gathering last night. Entertainment was provided by two s—ts, I mean 'artists' Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion," another tweeted. "How family appropriate."

"All joking aside, how is this appropriate to watch on CBS?" one person asked.

While many weren't impressed by the rappers and their performance, fans have argued that protesting the song perpetuates misogyny by being offended by female sexual expression.

"Crying because so much misogyny and racism directed at Cardi and Meg after 'WAP' and they still showed up like they didn’t hear any of it. Thank you for showing us how to be," someone tweeted.

"To the people calling Cardi B and Megan's performance not family-friendly. Hate to break it to you, but your misogyny is showing. Stop shaming women for being liberated by their sexuality. Stop teaching your kids that women's bodies should be hidden in order to be taken seriously," another wrote.

This isn't the first time that viewers have pushed back against risqué performances on live television. Some fans compared the Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion slander to the very similar backlash Jennifer Lopez faced after her 2020 Super Bowl performance, which featured a brief pole dance — a nod to her film "Hustlers."

"Remember how Karens got upset at Shakira and J-Lo about the Super Bowl...Wonder what they're gonna say about this," one person tweeted.
