M.I.A. Video Banned by YouTube

M.I.A.'s new video for the song "Born Free" has been removed from YouTube for excessive Violence (that's why the v is capitalized, because there's so much of it) and nudity.


She originally thought that the video had been removed by Universal Music Group, but later tweeted that UMG had nothing to do with the removal of the "Born Free" video. Check out the video in all its NSFW glory here.


The video shows U.S. troops in a domestic onslaught, descending on a community to round up ... redheads. That's right, I said it. Redheads.


I don't thik M.I.A.'s intention was to literally showcase the travesties and injustices that redheads face everyday, but rather to make a comment on profiling. The redheads in the video even have a redhead insurgent group, hurling Molotov cocktails and starting a resistance movement. The captive group is later shot or forced to run through a mine field.
