Goodbye to ‘Perra’: why YouTube has loaded the video of J Balvin

Colombian singer J Balvin.

Take care, this dog goes without a muzzle

I did not get the vaccine, tonight I’m animal

It was with anger that I splashed it

I put you on all fours, you are a bitch, you are not a cat

I spread myself on all fours, put a fan on me

So when I snatch the milk from you, it comes out in colors

I have canine rabies, vaginal fever

These are some of the phrases that the song contains Bitch. The video clip of J Balvin’s song is no less controversial: black women disguised as animals that move on all fours and are controlled and handled with leashes, to the rhythm of the letter.

After the controversy that has been unleashed in Colombia, the vice president of the government, Martha Lucía Ramírez, has spoken in an open letter and she has crossed out the video as “macho, sexist and misogynistic” for “objectifying women” and “violating their rights by comparing them to an animal that must be dominated and mistreated”, which for her is “failing as a society”.

It has been joined by Congresswoman Katherine Miranda, who has publicly asked that J Balvin apologize and that “actions be taken to defend women’s rights” by the authorities, since the letter “promotes gender violence” , according to the BBC.

Likewise, the same medium publishes the reaction of the writer Florence Thomas, who has requested that justice intervene because “this guy [J Balvin] he deserves jail, for all the women who have fought for years to have a minimum of dignity and respect ”.

The next to take the step has been YouTube. The platform has removed the images from the artist’s official profile and has left in their place a video with a still photo of the singer of reggaeton while your song is playing.
