Are Action Bronson's Lyrics Hate Speech?
Rapper Action Bronson has attracted the ire of activists who want to squeeze him out of Toronto's upcoming North By Northeast (NXNE) festival. They say his lyrics are violently misogynistic, and take issue with songs like Consensual Rape. Given that the objectification of women in hip-hop lyrics is nothing new, we ask: why Action Bronson, and why now? Should song lyrics be classified as hate speech? Rodrigo Bascunan and Anupa Mistry join Shad to discuss the issue.
