A recent rap video of a 6-year-old boy surrounded by women in bikinis is causing outrage by many people. The director says it was just a joke and the boy's parents allowed this video to be made. The video has been pulled from You Tube. It shows a boy surrounded by grown women in a pool where he sings: "I can make your booty pop, booty pop, booty pop." He later holds a water gun near his crotch and douses a dancer.
"I can't even begin to wonder what the motivation behind this video and song was, or why so many adults thought it was cool," read a blogpost in Vibe.com.
"Though the young boy did not utter a profanity, [he] certainly participated in a video that most responsible parents would find repulsive and inappropriate for an adolescent child," wrote BlackAmericaWeb.com.
The man who made the film, Tyler Council, president of the Florida-based Froze-N-Time Productions, told the Miami New Times: The boy's parents, meanwhile, who live in Oakland Park, Fla., paid "peanuts" for the video. "He's [The little boy] just trying to imitate his idols that he hears on the radio. There's no touching going on; there's no drug abuse."
You can see part of the video below, be aware it does show the young boy in a pool singing the above lyrics with grown women in bikinis.
What do you think of this video? Is it legitimate child abuse or just a funny video? Should these parents be punished for allowing their son to participate?
