(Newser) – The decency police are on NBC’s tail for Sunday’s obscenity-speckled Golden Globes. The Federal Communications Commission is reviewing the program after receiving 18 complaints, the Los Angeles Times reports. The most flagrant violation was probably when The Wrestler director Darren Aronofsky jokingly flipped off actor Mickey Rourke as he delivered a colorful acceptance speech. The gesture was censored only in the delayed West Coast feed.
