At least some Americans will manage to be offended by just about anything. But Miley Cyrus's trainwreck performance at last month's Video Music Awards was something special, and garnered one of the largest numbers of viewer complaints in recent history.

Through a FOIA request, Deadspin has obtained the file of FCC viewer complaints about the VMAs. There are 161 individual complaints. By comparison, Beyoncé's Super Bowl performance, watched by a much larger audience, drew just 48 complaints. David Ortiz swearing in the Red Sox's first game after the Boston Marathon bombings drew 25 letters.
