The prosecution had previously suspended the case, acknowledging that while the particular gesture in question raised eyebrows, it constituted only a brief moment within a two-hour concert.

The “obscene performance” controversy ignited significant public discourse, bringing into focus the boundaries of artistic expression.

Some contended that the act was provocative and unsuitable, while others defended it as a form of artistic expression and an embodiment of freedom of speech.
