Avril Lavigne’s “Hello Kitty” hits hard with audiences

Avril Lavigne may not be on the tips of everyone’s tongues these days, but her most recent debacle did bring her back into focus for many people. Her newest music video “Hello Kitty” hit the Internet with a storm when many people began to call her racist for the video.

She responded rather quickly on her Facebook with this:

“RACIST??? LOLOLOL!!! I love Japanese culture and I spend half of my time in Japan. I flew to Tokyo to shoot this video specifically for my Japanese fans, WITH my Japanese label, Japanese choreographers AND a Japanese director IN Japan.”

Many of her fans are agreeing that the video isn’t racist, which seems to have quieted the controversy down a tad. But the extent of the damage is done, especially because the discussion on race brought the video to the forefront.

Unfortunately for Avril, the criticism didn’t stop at race. Many fans are expressing just how unhappy they are with Avril’s video in general, saying that it’s “lame,” it “sucks” and is the first one of her content that they don’t like.

Regardless of whether this video is thought to be racist or not, Avril is definitely taking a hard hit for the song and the music video.

As least most of her fans aren't reacting as strongly as this guy is.
