Robin Thicke is unapologetic about how rapey ‘Blurred Lines’ is, meanwhile the dude who parodied it issues a public apology for one word.
And that is just one reason why I love Weird Al.
Note how Weird Al doesn’t make songs mocking fat people anymore either. It’s almost like people are capable of learning and changing their behavior for the better.
While it’s definitely great that Al apologized for the offensive language, I (unfortunately) feel obligated to respond to the above user by noting that another song (“Inactive”) on his latest album album seems to be in the same vein as earlier works like “Fat”. He’s still learning, I’d say (but he’s still learning, if you know what I mean).
