AVRIL LAVIGNE Reacts to The "Hello Kitty" Controversy


Avril Lavigne  just dropped her official music video for her track "Hello Kitty", the latest single off her self-titled fifth studio album. 

And as anyone would have expected from the title, the video was packed with Japanese inspired references. It features the singer parading around the streets of Tokyo accompanied by four emotionless Asian women dressed in matching outfits. 

But the 29-year-old rocker raised eyebrows since she released the video as it quickly drew complaints for what some dubbed as a mockery to the Japanese culture. 

But the whole issue just made Avril laugh! The singer finally responded to the accusations of racism through Twitter and Facebook, saying:


Along with the criticisms the video gained are a ton of publicity, the video was taken off Youtube in the midst of controversy but was uploaded again and in less than a week, the video has racked up nearly 7 million views! Watch the video below!
