Avril Lavigne Faces Flack Over Racist Video

April 24, 2014 Avril Lavigne, 702

Avril Lavigne’s latest single, "Hello Kitty", which released on Tuesday has not gone down well with the public. The video was taken down as instantly as it was uploaded owing to the controversial content, which has received a lot of backlash from several singers.

The click however made a re-appearance on Thursday with almost 702 "dislikes" in terms of its disapproval rating while only receiving 473 "likes.”

The video features Avril Lavigne dancing around in a rather crazy manner while randomly yelling out Japanese phrases as an army of Asian dancers bust a move (every minute or so) behind her.

The Billboard has slammed the video for it "Japan fetishization" and called out Lavigne for "parading around with four identical, creepily expressionless Asian women."

Also there was a huge outrage by the fans over the video saying things like, "Not sure if this Avril Lavigne video is terrible, racist, or terribly racist," one user wrote. Another echoed that sentiment, tweeting, “I’m not sure which makes it harder to watch the new Avril video: that it's offensive and racist or just weird."
