Watch Justin Bieber Enrage Spanish Culture Mocking His Own #1 Hit, “Despacito”
Justin Bieber lands himself in extremely hot water of a possible racist situation after a night out with The Chainsmokers in New York City. Today, video surface of the pop singer mocking his own latest number-one song, “Despacito” with a distasteful offensive yelling of mumbling of his part of the chorus.
“Despacito” is the new hit single for latin recording artists Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee. While already a hit, Bieber jumped on the revised version of American media and sang the song’s chorus. Bieber was in 1OAK Nightclub in New York City on Tuesday, and it looks like he is disrespecting his involvement in the song by not remembering the words to the song. The singer turned heads when people heard him singing in Spanish on the record, but it looks like he was only interested in yelling, “blah blah blah” instead of actually trying to duplicate his feature on the song.
As the video surfaced, many are claiming the mockery of the song being a controversial act of racism.
Watch the video above.
With Bieber forgetting the words and inserting his own ignorant sound effects. Many are labeling the situation as the Canadian singer disrespecting the Latin culture and exploiting the language as he is currently receiving publishing royalties for the song. Butchering the song, while it is unbeknownst if Bieber is under the influence or not, many are saying his performance at 1-Oak was a direct disrespect to Spanish people worldwide and a disrespect to the song’s creators Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee.
A second video has surfaced also with The Chainsmokers heckling Bieber and even playing “Despacito” repeatedly. Twitter was in outrage on the recent Bieber antic and has now tweeted out that the original was better without Bieber on the track.
Tweets on the offensive act include:
