The Asian-American community are ganging up on ‘bompton’ rapper YG and it’s all because oh his 2014 song “Meet the Fockers”
The asian american community believe the song glamorises robbery of Asians and are to stage protests at multiple stops of YG’s current tour. The song about home invasion guides potential robbers on how to be successful in their crimes and includes the lyrics ‘
“You find a house and scope it out//Find a Chinese neighborhood, cause they don’t believe in bank accounts.”
After a group of 30-50 Chinese-Americans picketed YG’s show in Maryland last Wednesday, another group showed up to voice its disapproval outside his show Monday night at New York’s Irving Plaza.
“We live in Flushing, Queens, and we had our house broken into twice in the last five years,” Chris Kwoak told CBS-NY.
“Shame on YG,” the New York protestors chanted.
Over 110,000 individuals have signed an online petition asking the White House to “ban the song from public media and investigate legal responsibilities of the writer.” The petition was posted last month after an incident in Gwinnett County, GA in which a Chinese-American woman shot at three intruders who entered her home, killing one.
