Popular Punjabi rapper Honey Singh has been slammed for vulgar and offensive lyrics demeaning women. Two of the five most-searched videos on YouTube in 2012 were his songs. The lyrics of one of his songs openly talk about sexually assaulting women.
In the wake of Delhi gang-rape, an online petition is doing the rounds on social media, which is demanding to ban the rapper from performing at a Gurgaon hotel on New Year's Eve.
The petition requests the general manager of the hotel to cancel the performance.
After the rapper's popularity soared, the song that is in the middle of controversy was noticed. However, the offensive song was released in 2006.
