In a letter written by Ramírez in which she addresses the Colombian artist, the official said in a forceful way that she rejects his topic because “it has direct and open sexist, racist, macho and misogynistic expressions that violate the rights of women by comparing them to an animal that is he must dominate and mistreat, with expressions that are not worth repeating ”.
In the video clip of his song in collaboration with the Dominican Tokischa, the Colombian is shown with two women being walked around as if they were animals, which many classified as a racist and misogynistic act.
