Only years later, the infamous 2004 Nipplegate with Janet Jackson’s wardrobe malfunction has been put to rest. The Supreme Court refused the appeal from the FCC, and CBS will not have to pay the $550,000 fine for showing boob. But that doesn’t protect other wardrobe malfunctions from here on out…if you show boob, you won’t be protected and will have to cough up the dough. Chief Justice John Roberts said, ”It is now clear that the brevity of an indecent broadcast — be it word or image — cannot immunize it from FCC censure. Any future ‘wardrobe malfunctions’ will not be protected on the ground relied on by the court below.”
Basically he’s saying that Janet has the chosen nipple.
