Youtube removed YG’s song, released in 2014, called “Meet The Flockers” because of lyrics robbing Asian people. Many of YouTube’s employees criticized the song lyrics amid the recent rise of Asian-American hate crimes.
YouTube’s Trust & Safety team made special statement. The statement noted that the song’s lyrics violated the company’s hate speech policy.
Read YG’s few lines for “Meet The Flockers”:
First, you find a house and scope it out
Find a Chinese neighborhood, cause they don’t believe in bank accounts
Second, you find a crew and a driver, someone ring the doorbell
And someone that ain’t scared to do what it do – he raps.
“YouTube took down ‘Meet The Flockers’. The woke s**theads are winning,” wrote No Jumper podcast host Adam22.
