New Die Antwoord video “Fatty Boom Boom” pisses off Lady Gaga and possibly all black people


So you know that new Die Antwoord video we told you about a couple weeks back? Well, it’s out, and it’s even more batshit crazy than usual. Among other things, “Fatty Boom Boom” features a Lady Gaga impersonator giving birth to a cockroach and the disturbing spectacle of little blonde Yo-landi Vi$$er prancing around in head-to-toe black body paint. Lady Gaga is not amused, and neither are the good folks over at Slate, The Guardian and TheGrio.com, who are calling Yo-landi’s paint job blackface.

So…is “Fatty Boom Boom” racist? Or are Die Antwoord just having fun with African stereotypes? Watch the clip and judge for yourself.
