They withdraw ‘Perra’, the controversial video of J Balvin from YouTube

Still from ‘Perra’, video that was removed from J Balvin’s official account

Fans of J Balvin they denounced through social networks the withdrawal of ‘Bitch’, one of the songs that has caused the most rejection in different sectors of Colombia for promoting values ​​such as misogyny, machismo, mistreatment against women, among others.

The report, compiled by different Colombian media, points out that replacing the audiovisual was an audio with the song, which reached 238 thousand reproductions on Sunday, October 17.

Although the Colombian has not issued a communication in this regard, versions such as the one expressed by SEMANA would indicate that it was him, through his PR team, who would have withdrawn the material due to the growing rejection, especially in Colombia, for the lyrics and images of ‘Perra’.

The material has aroused negative opinions at the highest level, such as that expressed by the Vice President and Chancellor of the Republic, Marta Lucia Ramirez, to the prosecution of the singer by the iconic Colombian-French feminist, Florence thomas.

The song of J Balvin, present in its latest release ‘Jose’ and released simultaneously with the controversy sustained with the singer-songwriter Resident, famous for a one hit wonder in Latin America with his group Calle 13, ‘Dare yourself’, opened a debate in Colombia on women’s rights.

Two sides fighting for a common cause

As a reflection of the political polarization that Colombia is experiencing, the first one who opened the discussion regarding ‘Perra’ was Ramírez, who called the piece ‘Machista, racista y misogina’, with the focus on an image in which Balvin submitted to some afro women that personified as animals, made up as such, and with necklaces that symbolize the power that the singer has over them.

The vice president’s statements Ramirez were issued in coordination with the Presidential Councilor for Women’s Equity, Gheidy Gallo Santos, who highlighted that “the artist uses images of women and Afro-descendant people – population groups with special constitutional protection – whom he presents with dog ears. In addition, while walking, the singer carries two Afro-descendant women tied with neck chains and crawling on the floor like animals or slaves.”.

But political radicalization was present in what should be a common cause such as the defense of women’s rights. The senator, current presidential candidate, Maria Fernanda Cabal, did not join the rejection of Ramírez and other figures, but characterized as’hypocrites‘the accusations against the song of J Balvin.

Cabal clarified that he does not like the song, stating that the sexualization of women is gender practice, but, in an argumentative twist, charged against the political opposition, especially against the legislators of the former FARC guerrilla, now the Common Party, in Congress.

In his words: “It cannot be denied that it is vulgar, but that genre has always sexualized in its songs and there is an audience for everything. In addition, I can assure that many women will dance it. In the meantime the world remains silent in the face of rapists and murderers of children in the Colombian Congress. Hypocrisy?”, Questioned the senator of the Democratic Center.
