Action bronson glorifies gang-raping and murdering women. It is an insult to the people of Toronto for NXNE, Now Magazine, Vans Footwear, and the City of Toronto to be featuring an artist on public property whose lyrics are as follows:
"Then dig your shorty out cuz I geeked her up on molly
Have her eating dick, no need for seasoning
If seven dudes are in the room then she's pleasing them
Like a trooper. Hit her in the pooper. Throw her in the shower
Then I take her out to Lupa I'm kinky, I'll hit it even if it's stinky
Put em in the shower, make the pussy brand new Ran through.
Give 'em money what I can't do Stuff her lunchbox & burn her with the candle"
The lyrics above, from the song titled "Consensual Rape", are hate speech. Although many in the Hip Hop community and music industry may be aware of Action Bronson's violent misogyny, many others remain unaware of his history of recording music that brags about gang-raping and murdering women. We are petitioning to have this artist removed from the line-up of this show, on the grounds that he produces hate speech. A musician who glorifies rape and violence against women should not be invited to perform at a public space in our city.
Also attached is a video in which the artist cooks a meal over a woman's dead body, rolls her up in a carpet, throws her in his trunk, and proceeds to violently stab her when he discovers she's still alive (trigger warning, obviously): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fPCQgzA1cnU
