PHILADELPHIA, PA (KTRK) --Rapper YG performed in front of excited fans in Philadelphia Saturday night.
But just beyond the doors, near the main entrance, was a group of protesters anxious to see the rapper for completely different reasons.
"We want to get our message across. All we want to do is look into their eyes and say this is wrong," said Cliff Li, New Civil Rights Alliance.
Many in the Chinese-American community are outraged about a 2-year-old song called "Meet the Flockers" by YG. They say it encourages his fans to scope out Chinese neighborhoods to commit burglaries.
The song begins with the lyrics, "First, you find a house and scope it out. Find a Chinese neighborhood, cause they don't believe in bank accounts."
In the controversial video, one of the actors breaks into a home with a picture of an Asian family.
"YG's song is promoting Chinese families, they don't believe in bank accounts, they have a lot of cash at home," said Han Pan of Willow Grove.
"It's nothing fun to glorify these kind of things," said Li.
WPVI reports that demonstrators say there has been a recent uptick in crimes against those in the Chinese-American community.
"We hope all of the communities comes together. African-Americans, Latinos, Asian, white. Let's all come together... I mean this is just really wrong," said Li.
Asian-American communities around the country are protesting the rapper's song. There is a petition demanding the song be banned, and their specifically asking YouTube to take down the music video.
