“This Is Too Much”; Netizens Cancel Joe Flizzow & Jay Park Following Usage Of ‘Allah’ In Lyrics

Well, this exploded.

 

Netizens today have gone berserk when a Twitter user @PurpleProject7 posted a tweet sharing the lyrics to a song by K-Pop star Jay Park. In it, Park uses the name ‘Allah’ in the lyrics of the song MUKKBANG! (Remix), released on December 4, 2020.

 

 

The user then shared the details of the song that is currently under fire from netizens.

 

 

Looking at tweets from netizens, many have expressed their disappointment in Jay Park – and Malaysian rapper Joe Flizzow, for working with the South Korean rapper afterwards (the duo released ‘CIAO’ later on in January 2021).

 

 

 

 

 

Since being called out, Jay Park has released a statement on Twitter.

It’s important for us to be educated about religion and the culture of others. What may mean one thing to us, might mean something else for others. Respecting these boundaries will guide us to a healthier relationship amongst people.

 

 

Correction: An earlier version of this article (posted on the 27th of May 2021 at 16:33) claimed that Joe Flizzow himself had addressed the situation. This is not true as the rapper was instead referring to Jay Electronica’s mention of Allah in the song, “Twisted Dreams”. We sincerely apologise for the oversight and extend our thanks to those who informed us of the discrepancy.
