“We tried to do everything that was taboo. Bestiality, drug injections, and everything that is completely derogatory towards women. Because all three of us are happily married with children, we were like, ’We’re the perfect guys to make fun of this.’ People say, ‘Hey, do you think this is degrading to women?’ I’m like, ‘Of course it is. What a pleasure it is to degrade a woman. I’ve never gotten to do that before. I’ve always respected women.’”
I don’t know whether to find this quote funny and awesome or deeply insulting. I think I’m going to go with the former, because It’s quite obvious that this is not the man’s normal mindset nor is it his normal behavior. It’s more like he was trying to make a parody than anything. I’ve never seen the video, so I’ll just talk about the song here.
Looking at the lyrics (and actually listening to it a few times) It’s quite obvious that this is supposed to be a “funny” song. I personally can not find to much “objectifying women” in the lyrics of this song. In fact, one of the lines is “you’re far from plastic”. Pretty sure that’s the opposite of saying “you’re my sex object”. The only part of the song that could actually disturb me or offend me was T.I.’s verse which crosses the line a bit for me.

most of us know that T.I.’s rap style can be quite ….“offensive”
but I’m sure most of us are mature enough not to make a bit stink about it, so what if it crosses “lines”, why let it offend you? what’s the point of letting it offend you? lol

I’m not saying it did offend me, I’m saying that it’s the only part of the song that could have offended. But as I stated before I know it’s supposed to be a comedic song and I am also aware of T.I.‘s style so I’m not actually offended by it.
