"Actually, It's fine", Japan says they cool with "Racist" Avril Music Video

2014-04-26 09:00

While the world has been offended on Japan's behalf, Japan has come out to say that they actually like Avril Lavigne's new music video.

Avril's new music video, Hello Kitty, has drawn sharp criticism from almost everyone for portraying Japanese and Asian culture in a "stereotypical" and "racist" way but the Japanese embassy in America has come out saying they sure Avril only "had only good intentions when making the video" and that she was a national cultural hero, adding they "would be happy if the discussions surrounding her song and music video results in more people discovering the beautiful and rich culture of Japan."

Well, there we go, next time we run off being offended, let's ask Japan what they think.
