Controversial Malaysian rapper Namewee, 38, was slammed by Blackpink fans for sexualising the super popular K-pop group in his latest music video ‘You Know Who Is My Father?’.

The song, which is performed in English, Mandarin, and Malay, contains a line which goes: “Always watch Blackpink and masturbate”.

Its music video depicts a man flaunting his father’s wealth and features Namewee surrounded by a group of scantily clad women in several locations like a nightclub and swimming pool.

According to Namewee's post, the moral of the song is “Don't play play with rich people, they can piak your face anytime they want, even in the steamboat restaurant." 

After the clip was released on May 28, Blackpink fans, known as Blinks, flooded his YouTube channel and Instagram with comments demanding he apologise to the group and learn to respect women.

“Take down this video! Apologise to Blackpink! Stop disrespecting women!” said one fan, while another wrote: “You messed with the wrong fandom, respect for Blackpink.”

However, there were also netizens who spoke up for Namewee, saying that the song “is about how a certain rich group in Malaysia live their lives”.

“This song is basically targeting a certain rich group in Malaysia telling how this group is bullying others in Malaysia. It is not disrespectful to women," wrote the netizen.
