As reported previously, Malaysian artiste Namewee’s latest music video has caught the attention of Blackpink fans as it mentions the popular K-pop group... and not in a good way.
You Know Who Is My Father?, which was released on May 28, features the line that goes,"Always look at Blackpink and masturbate".
The lyrics and the music video itself – which features scantily clad women – have riled up many netizens, who have demanded the singer apologise and learn to respect women.
One person wrote: “Sexualising successful women is funny?”
Namewee, who has faced a number of controversies in his career, is not fazed by the comments.
Instead, Namewee wrote this on his YouTube channel below the You Know Who Is My Father? Lyrics video: “Thanks for giving me views. Please continue! How you like that that that that..., ” referring to Blackpink’s hit song How You Like That.
After all the 38-year-old performer stated on Instagram that the moral of the song is: “Don't play play with rich people, they can PIAK your face anytime they want, even in the steamboat restaurant."
It was reported that Namewee later shared this on another post as well: “(Blackpink) fans are really united and have strong mobilisation capabilities (but) it’s a pity that they don’t even understand what the song is trying to express".
Luckily for him, the message got through to some fans like this netizen who wrote: “This song is basically targeting a certain rich group in Malaysia telling how this group is bullying others in Malaysia. It is not disrespectful to women.”
The official music video is not available on YouTube currently, but it can be viewed on his Instagram account.
In separate news, Namewee shared that two of his other music videos – You Don't Know Me and Alzheimer's Love – received recognition at the Telly Awards (see below).
