A former Ohio football coach is on an all-out blitz against the NFL over its Super Bowl halftime show with Jennifer Lopez and Shakira – saying he intends to sue because their revealing outfits put him “in danger of hellfire.”
Local minister Dave Daubenmire — host of “Pass the Salt Ministries’ Coach Dave LIVE” web show — said he plans to sue the league, Pepsi, Fox and several other companies for the “crotch-grabbing” performance, according to the Daily Caller.
“I think we ought to go sit down in a courtroom and present this as evidence of how whoever is keeping me from getting into the kingdom of Heaven,” Daubenmire said in a video.
The Super Bowl LIV halftime extravaganza showcased the two women gyrating to Shakira’s “Hips Don’t Lie” and Lopez’s “On the Floor, ” which Daubenmire slammed as a “porn show” unfit for young viewers.
Daubenmire said he was appalled by the “crotch-grabbing,” “soft pornographic” performance.
“I turned on the TV to watch football, not to watch a pole dance,” Daubenmire told the Daily Caller in a phone interview from his home in Hebron, Ohio.
“They penetrated the sanctity of my home,” he added.
On Monday, he said on his webcast that Lopez was too old to wear provocative clothing.
“J.Lo is 50,” he said. “You go on a porn website, you’re not looking for 50-year-old women.”
“I’m not here to tell the NFL what they can put on. I’m not here to tell anyone what they can watch,” Daubenmire said, according to the outlet. “But they don’t have the right in the middle of a game to broadcast soft porn.”
Daubenmire said he has spoken with a lawyer and plans to go forward with the lawsuit against the NFL, claiming he would be satisfied by scoring an $867 trillion settlement.
In a Thursday webcast, Daubenmire said he received backlash for his earlier post, including having been sent pornographic images and being propositioned for sex.
“I’ve seen pictures of large penises and I appreciate it, but, no, I don’t want to receive any of them,” he said. “The offers that you guys have to come by and put it where the sun don’t shine in my bun.”
