‘Welp, I’m never gonna look at a papaya the same way again,’ a fan reacts to the controversial scene which features a female model putting some of her fingers on a papaya.
Machine Gun Kelly recently released a music video of “Why Are You Here”, though it was started by someone leaking the video. The visuals for the pop-punk track saw the hip-hop star having an adult fun, but one particular scene didn’t sit well with some fans.
The said scene of the colorfully-charged, action-packed video features a female model putting some of her fingers on a papaya which was purposedly censored. The sexual innuendos seemingly offended people as some thought that MGK was alluding to a woman pleasuring themselves.
“Welp, I’m never gonna look at a papaya the same way again,” a fan reacted to the scene. However, some fans jumped to his defense, tweeting, “People getting offended at MGK’s mv showing a woman fingering a papaya are the same people who have never masturbated a day in their life.”
MGK also clapped back at the haters in a video he shared on Twitter on Thursday, March 5. “OK, so I saw some of you were offended by certain scene in a music video I just released,” he began. “Let’s just put perspective on some things in 2020 that we should be concerned about. Hate crimes? F**k that. Coronavirus? It’s a big deal. Let’s figure that out. Offensive fruits? I’m gonna go ahead and say, ‘Chill tf out. It’s a papaya.’ ”
Some fans agreed with the star, admitting that “ppl so sensitive these days.” Someone else pointed that “people post worse on IG and twitter.”
Meanwhile, some others were more interested in MGK’s pink finger nails. “He wants the camera to see those nails so bad,” a fan commented. Another person was eager to have nails done just like that, asking, “Anybody know what color that is on his nails….? I’m going to the nail shop in the morning & I want that exact color.”
