She laughed them off..
Avril Lavigne has responded to criticism of her latest music video "Hello Kitty". There have been some, including Billboard, who claimed the video was racist. It features Lavigne and four Asian dancers in several candy-colored locations like a bedroom and candy shop. She eats sushi, waves at fans and takes a photo. Billboard claimed that she was "fetishing" Japanese culture. It was removed from Youtube after it was uploaded but was later re-added.
She wrote on Twitter:
RACIST??? LOLOLOL!!! I love Japanese culture and I spend half of my time in Japan. I flew to Tokyo to shoot this video…
