After some backlash Youtube user LOTI posted a comment under the video explaining why he made the video.
“I just want to make this clear, my intentions weren’t to be disrespectful to the message of the song. There’s some very messed up things going on in America right now, racism wise. There’s no denying it. This is just a shitpost that spiraled out of control. I made it in 30 minutes and posted it to have a laugh with my friends. It’s not meant to offend, but for laughter. The original video for TIA caused a great conversation, and still is. But most of the energy surrounding it is negative. I wasn’t purposefully trying to be ignorant to the climate we’re in, but i think the fact that so many people of all races are enjoying this is something to look at. It’s just a meme made to laugh at, nothing else.”
Make sure you watch the original video…
