    A newly-reformed American pop band the Pussycat Dolls recently performed at Sport Relief show which was broadcast by BBC. The show made a stir among the British public, which viewed the group's plastic polyvinyl chloride (PVC) costumes as lewd and obscene.

    Some BBC Sport Relief viewers dubbed the antics of the women on stage as "porn", slamming the Pussycat Dolls for what was considered be some to be a raunchy performance almost a week after another controversial appearance on television sparked public outrage, prompting a number of complaints to the UK Office of Communications (Ofcom).

    ​ “#SportsRelief2020 OMG @pussycatdolls Pure porn, really Flushed facemiddle aged women didn’t look like this Ever”, one of the commentators lamented. Netizens flooded social media with backlash.

    ​BBC responded to the complaints in an official statement on their website, saying that "We worked with the band to ensure their performance was suitable".

    Earlier, the Pussycat Dolls performed at Ant & Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway, and viewers and netizens were abuzz, as Ofcom received dozens of complaints, according to reports.
