However, not everyone agreed with the presentations. Famous former adult film actress, Mia Khalifa, expressed her dissatisfaction on her X account: “Karol G got robbed, I’m sorry, but the girl is filling the stadium until there is room to stand;” Any decision other than that is purely political to appease the broader audience that MTV is trying to reach.”
