The musician M.I.A., who has Sri Lankan and British roots, has just introduced her new music single. Along with the music, she introduced her sprawling bloody and visually arresting new video imagines a dystopian future one in which redheads are the target of a genocidal campaign. However, M.I.A. has not released a statement regarding the video's message and may leave it to our imagination.

It's banned because some people are too scared to face the truth of the world.

If black people were used instead of the red heads, nobody would be talking..... Wake up people!

Banned from YouTube, yet Vevo has it on their YouTube account. And people should calm the fuck down. I'm pretty sure M.I.A. had a HUGE reason why the video was directed as it was. If you look and read about her life, M.I.A. has gone through some extremely DEEP DEEP shit. So it's a no gimmick to learn that she would be so into political activism, protest, and slavery. So there's no way she made this video out of random.

Press 9 for laughs.

She doesn't even answer his second question, regarding Sri Lanka ? She's so caught up in criticising the US

Honestly, there is nothing offensive about the video. 
Alice Liddell
WTF how can you be offended by nudity? I don't like it either, but we're all people. We all get naked. Who the fuck cares?
Alice Liddell
You know, you're as bad as the Americans... Idiot. Saying "stupid American fucks" indicates that you pile us into a giant group, just like our extremists do Muslims. You hate us so much? Stop being exactly the same as OUR extremists... We're not all ass holes.
Alice Liddell
Yeah, but you'd be surprised how many people don't get it.
