Hello Media Bias: first Guns and now this.
The media is in a tizzy over Avril Lavigne’s latest video, Hello Kitty, based on the single. The media in my opinion falsely charges racism over the use of Japanese dancers and falsely reported the video was pull off YouTube when I still found copies on YouTube. The video was pulled off some channels but the reason was not because the charges the video is racist.
As for the video it is pure pop fluff and a little innuendo and one curse word but racist it is not. What was she suppose to do use only white dancers? If there any problem have with the video is the song is suppose to be influenced by Lavigne ‘s love for Hello Kitty but Hello Kitty doe not even make one appearance in the video. The shoot has more of a generic Kawaii J-pop look to it.
Ms Lavigne reply over the racist charge shows how stupid the media was
“RACIST??? LOLOLOL!!! I love Japanese culture and I spend half of my time in Japan. I flew to Tokyo to shoot this video… …specifically for my Japanese fans, WITH my Japanese label, Japanese choreographers AND a Japanese director IN Japan.”
