Christian Mom's Video Goes Viral After Hearing Vulgar Rap Song on RadioBlog
Concerned mother Krystle Partido, who's now being pegged online as the "Christian Mom" is gaining notoriety because she called out rapper Vince Staples and her local top 40 radio station last month for subjecting her 11-year-old daughter to a vulgar rap song.
In a recorded 11-minute Facebook live video streamed from her home in Woodward, Oklahoma, Partido let the world know her thoughts on Staples' 2015 ditty "Norf Norf."
"Norf Norf" is reportedly about Staples' tough life growing up in Long Beach, California. Partido, however, was mortified that the radio station would include the song on their station even though the curse words were censored.
"Hit the corner, make a dollar flipping/ Split the dollars with my mama children/ Folks need Porsches, hoes need abortions/ I just need y'all out of my business," the mother rapped as she broke down into tears.
In the clip, Partido said that she normally tunes her radio to the Christian station when the family is in the car together, but on this particular day she allowed her daughter to hear some of today's greatest hits.
"This rap song comes on — and guys, I could not believe what I was hearing," she said. "This is on our local radio station, this crap is being played. I couldn't even believe the words that I was listening to. As a mom, it infuriated me."
Partido recited Staples' "Norf Norf" explicit lyrics while breaking down in tears.
After the internet exploded from Partido's conservative stance, Staples addressed the viral video in a post that has since been deleted and reposted by other sites.
"I don't really have much to say about the video — I don't think it's funny at all," Staples said in an interview with The Independent. "It's not right to attack someone over their stance, their opinions, and their religion. I think that's very immature."
He added: "We already have a lot of issues between black and white relations in this country based on misunderstandings. ... In my eyes, she doesn't look like a racist. She doesn't look like a mean person. But it's not very responsible for people to try to take that and jump, looking for some sort of commentary on these issues [in the community]."
After the article was published, however, Staples took to Twitter to clarify his comments, claiming he was misquoted by the Independent: "What I was saying was that the woman in that video is clearly confused on the context of the song which causes her to be frightened," he tweeted.
