Today we are giving out Mexican hats, moustaches, we have taco trucks outside and a mariachi band playing our songs – Five Seconds of Summer
“instead of apologizing for turning mexican/xicano culture into a joke to amuse their fans, or pleading ignorance on the situation, ashton passively fav’d” — Some Humorless ‘Anti-Racist’ Cunt
So, there is this boy band called ‘5 Seconds of Summer.’ They held a Sombrero and Mustache party and hired a Mexican band to play Mariachi-styled covers of their songs. (You know, like Weird Al Yankovic does Polka-covers of various pop songs.) 5 Seconds of Summer put on sombreros and fake moustaches and held a party.
Then some leftist wingnut with no sense of humor or irony or anything except for Outrage!!1 decide this is some Horrific Racist Hatred. In fact, these little boys who probably don’t even play their own instruments actually have the Power – the White Boy power – to turn the Vibrant© “Mexicao/Xicano culture into a joke.”
Wait, Xicano? WTF is that? Chicano? Oh wait, I see, “Chicano” is the White Man’s Spelling. Any Real Aztec would spell it with an “X” – you know, culturally appropriating the Latin Alphabet from Da White Manz is a strike against Oppression.
In any case, evidently these little teenage boys have the White Boy Power to turn the Vibrant© Xicano culture into a joke. That’s how much power teenage White Boys have. All the little brown refugees in that camp on the Southwest Borders are in tears, holding a hunger strike until 5 Seconds of Summer plays a benefits concert and supports amnesty.
Full disclosure: your truly was in a band as a teenager and had stupid looking hair like that kid second from the left, however we played our own instruments and fucked our own groupies. Yes, being in a shitty little teenager band does get you hot little scenster chicks, so it’s totally worth it.
Reached on the phone, a spokesjew with the Anti-Defamation League of Bnai-Beef was quoted as saying, “we’re sure this was anti-semitic in some way, oy vey, we must stop this virulent anti-semitism. Sounds more like Five Seconds of Hitler, am I right? Wait, who is this again?”
