Die Antwoord Accuses “Suicide Squad” of Jocking Their Style
Suicide Squad topped the box office, with a whopping $161 million domestic haul, despite critics ripping it to shreds.
With journalists and fans expressing their disappointment in the film, more are joining in. The latest being South African rap/rave duo, Die Antwoord, who accuse the film of jocking their style.
Yolandi and Ninja took to Instagram this week to air out their grievances with Suicide Squad, revealing that actors Cara Delevingne (Enchantress) and Jared Leto (Joker) told them that director David Ayer discussed them on set and lifted elements from the Die Antwoord aesthetic for character designs.
Check out their responses below. In one video, we are presented with similarities between the duo and the film's characters. You be the judge.
yes David Ayer u jockin our style. callin ninja up before your movie came our pretendin 2b down, so it looks OK when u bite our black & white graf style & our opening sequence to umshiniwam & an all da lil tiny details u nibbeld dat other people wont see but we notice. Cara & Jared told us how much u were talkin abt us on set but u never asked our permision to rip us off. An when ninja texted u sayin wassup wif dat u said nothin like a scared lil bitch. U were jus flauntin our names pretendin to b down. u aint down an u never will b. but before we knew da extent of ur two face nature - u invited us to ur movie premiere(which i didnt wanna go to) but ninja went , tinkin ur solid guy an mayb there was jus a lil "misunderstandin". Den poor ninja had to sit thru dat hole bullshit movie. An u even got da nerve to say wassup to him smilin - an ninja has to b nice cus he is there wif his kid. But we all tink u wack. U shud start a crew called:,"im a fake fuck" ask kanye if he wants to join u. Cum show ur pretty face at my studios. U know Muggs & u know where da Soul Assasin Studios at. we watin for u. @djmuggs_the_black_goat_ @zef_alien @boojie_baby_ @ragingzefboner @_dark_force_ @dejanvisser @djhitekisgod @jipsi518
