Anti-Asian song “Meet the Flockers” is back on streaming after brief removal


-Rapper YG’s song “Meet the Flockers” has anti-Asian lyrics about targeting Chinese people for robbery
-YG is best known for his song “FDT (Fuck Donald Trump)”
-Asian employees at YouTube tried to get the music video taken down for weeks
-The song was taken down on YouTube, Spotify, and Apple Music a couple of days ago
-The song was put back on all platforms today with the anti-Asian lyrics censored
-The lyrics in question are
First: You find a house and scope it out
Find a Chinese neighborhood
‘Cause they don’t believe in bank accounts

-The censored song says “find a, find a neighborhood” instead

Yuck
He's outright telling people to rob Chinese neighbourhoods? Are kidding me with this bullshit? Idgaf that he's censored the song, he shouldn't be allowed to profit for brainwashing people to commit hate crimes.
disgusting but not surprised
