Jennifer Lopez's sexiness has landed her in hot water in Morocco.

A recent raunchy performance at a concert in the capital Rabat was broadcast on public TV and an educational group claims she "disturbed public order and tarnished women's honour and respect" with her routine.

J-Lo took to the stage in a corset paired with sparkly fishnets and gave her usual high-energy, ass-shaking, gyrating performance.

However, her show, at the Mawazine World Rhythms International Music Festival didn't go down with some conservative viewers who, the BBC reports, are demanding that minister of communications Mustapha Khalifi resign over allowing the show to be broadcast.

Khalifi agrees with the viewers.  He tweeted that the concert was "unacceptable and goes against broadcasting law" and is demanding a meeting with the 2M TV network who broadcast J-Lo's performance.

If J-Lo was to be found guilty she could reportedly face up to two years in prison although this is highly unlikely.
