I know I don't have to tell you this because you already know, but Ashanti released a new album, The Declaration. The music video for her first single features Ashanti murdering an unfaithful lover. That's all well and good.
The surprisingly dark and gory viral video promoting the music video isn't.
You'd think someone would give Ashanti's people a heads up regarding all the murders in Ward 5 lately before releasing a video where people are being brutally stabbed Manson style in Washington, DC and having "Black Children Will Die" (!!!) written in blood on a bathroom wall.
The video can be found on Ashanti's record label's website. I'm loathe to link to them, so here's the video (and a hat tip) to Jezebel.
If you find the record label's site, this shows up after the offensive video is finished.
If you can't read it, it's a form that lets you e-murder a friend with your choice of weapon. You can even upload pictures to really bloody them up.
Keep it classy, Ashanti.
