2004: In what was later referred to as a "wardrobe malfunction," Janet Jackson's breast is briefly exposed by fellow performer Justin Timberlake during the halftime show of Super Bowl XXXVIII in Houston, Texas. The incident led to an immediate crackdown and widespread debate on perceived indecency in broadcasting, with the Federal Communications Commission, which had received more than 500,000 complaints from viewers, increasing the fine per indecency violation from $27,500 to $325,000 shortly after the event.
