    Ugh the bloke makes me want to puke and has done so since he first appeared on our screens. He's a full grown man ffs who parades
    around like a fourteen year old raver, he's talentless and lame and it's obvious his daddy played a role in bringing the douche into the limelight. Tool.
    And who cares if the song "isn't his" technically, the lyrics are revolting and if wants to reap the rewards from such dirty sleaze ($$$) then he needs to own that. Funny how he's stepping away from associating himself with the song now that it's getting bad press, but had it won a grammy I'm sure he'd be all over it.

    I always liked him when I saw him in interviews, he seemed a decent guy brought up by his single Mum and so spoke very highly of women etc. I was quite shocked when I saw the lyrics to this song a few weeks back and even more so that he features in it, very disappointing and that 'song' is lame regardless.

    I personally don't think it's just a film clip. Just a bit of fun. I don't think that misogyny and sexism is funny or anything to be downplayed. When will society stop calling the men and women who protest women being objectified 'kill joys' or 'uptight'. It's sad that excuses are being made for people who encourage these warped stereotypes in a culture where both men and women are suffering from them.

    It may not be his song. But he is in there, singing, dancing, and supporting the song. He's not responsible for what the other rappers wrote but he is responsible for his contribution. It's extremely offensive. Using alcohol to coerce women into getting loose and then telling them to 'shut the ---- up' when they protest? It's not just a film clip, it's alarming.

    He's a tool.

    Makes a mockery of "talent" shows when a douche like that is giving advice and mentoring. Seriously anyone can call themselves a musician these days.

    Ugh. I'm always amazed when people identify themselves as fans. Seriously what has he done?

    While I don't like Refoo and think he is a talentless hack, who is only as famous as he is because his father is high up in the industry, I didn't particularly find this clip anymore mysogynistic than most of the other film clips out there.
    Most of the clips now are soft porn and all objectify women.
    I can't watch them and wouldn't be letting DD watch them when she is old enough to do so.

    No, just watched the clip with the sound off while I put the baby to sleep.
    Are they that bad? The 'artists' with him look like mindless thugs.
