Is Avril's Lavigne's new music video for her single "Hello Kitty " racist?
After being accused of racism, the popular star defended the video for the electro-pop single. "Hello Kitty" was written with Chad Kroeger, her husband and the frontman of Nickleback. The video features Asian culture stereotypes which many have denounced as racist.
The singer stands by her video, firing back that it was shot in Japan, for a Japanese audience with a Japanese director and a Japanese label. The video has been taken down from YouTube, but you can still see it on her official website.
