Tyga Removes Offensive Music Video After Offending Mexican-Americans

  • Tyga recently addressed his remorse for offending the Mexican community with his 'Ay Caramba' video that highlighted unwanted stereotypes.
  • Tyga said, "When I dropped the video, I wasn't in L.A., I was in Europe. And then I started seeing a lot of people offended by it and I was kinda confused."
  • He continued, "That's why I didn't respond ... I kinda, like, tried to do my research a little bit. I tried to ask a lot of the people that I grew up with that are Mexican."
  • He added, "When I've done something that was a Mexican record like 'Go Loko,' I wrote that song and I was like, this song is literally for the Mexicans I grew up with ... I want to pay homage to them. This is what I seen growing up with friends of mine. When I made 'Go Loko,' that's what that was. I think with 'Ay Caramba,' I wasn't thinking, this is for the Mexicans I grew up with."
  • Tyga continued, "But I know I had no intentions of offending anybody. For one, I want to apologize to the Mexican community and my fans that are Mexican. I have a lot of Latin fans that are Puerto Rican, and Dominican, that probably weren't offended by this video. But my Mexicans fans in L.A., there definitely were some that were offended."
  • Tyga has decided to take down the video after hesitation because it has generated over 4 million views.
