Jon Wu: Yes, IvyGate is kidding

YCC President Jon Wu ’11 confirmed today that an IvyGate post claiming that MGMT canceled its upcoming performance at this year’s Spring Fling is nothing more than an April Fool’s joke. The post claimed MGMT was protesting the misogynistic lyrics of fellow Spring Fling performers the Ying Yang Twins, and that the group had also canceled its performance at Brown, where Snoop Dogg will be performing as well.

    It is worth asking, though, if it’s worth inviting R&B/rap/hip-hop acts that are so misogynistic. Why not look for one that DOESN’T degrade women in his lyrics? Or does such an artist just not exist?

    Misogyny was a significant concern with last years SF committee where they said no to Akon bc of such concerns
