Cape Town – In a video posted on Instagram on Wednesday, Yo-Landi Visser accuses Suicide Squad director David Ayer of "jockin" their style.

The video points to the similarities between Die Antwoord’s style and that used in Suicide Squad. One image in the video shows Ninja and Jared Leto, as his The Joker character, in similar trench coats wearing no t-shirt underneath while another image shows Harley Quinn wearing Yo-Landi’s signature three watches on one arm.

In the post Yo-Landi reveals that there are lots more "tiny details" that "other people wont see but we notice". 

Die Antwoord goes on to explain how Ayer phoned Ninja before the movie came out saying he is "down" and how Cara Delevingne and Jared Leto said that Ayer talked about Die Antwoord a lot on set.

In the post the zef rappers also take a swipe at Kanye West. "But we all tink u wack. U shud start a crew called:,"im a fake fuck" ask kanye if he wants to join u," Yo-Landi writes.

yes David Ayer u jockin our style. callin ninja up before your movie came our pretendin 2b down, so it looks OK when u bite our black & white graf style & our opening sequence to umshiniwam & an all da lil tiny details u nibbeld dat other people wont see but we notice. Cara & Jared told us how much u were talkin abt us on set but u never asked our permision to rip us off. An when ninja texted u sayin wassup wif dat u said nothin like a scared lil bitch. U were jus flauntin our names pretendin to b down. u aint down an u never will b. but before we knew da extent of ur two face nature - u invited us to ur movie premiere(which i didnt wanna go to) but ninja went , tinkin ur solid guy an mayb there was jus a lil "misunderstandin". Den poor ninja had to sit thru dat hole bullshit movie. An u even got da nerve to say wassup to him smilin - an ninja has to b nice cus he is there wif his kid. But we all tink u wack. U shud start a crew called:,"im a fake fuck" ask kanye if he wants to join u. Cum show ur pretty face at my studios.
