Die Antwoord Claim ‘Suicide Squad’ Ripped Off Their Style
The South African group posted a video slamming the new supervillain film for stealing their look.
Die Antwoord, the rap-rave group known for their distinctive and striking style, posted a video today (Aug. 10, 2016) taking aim Suicide Squad director David Ayer for appropriating their outlandish fashion when crafting Jared Leto’s Joker and Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn. The video breaks down “all da lil tiny details u nibbeld” for the film.
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
But they didn’t stop there. In the caption, they claim Cara Delevingne and Jared Leto relayed to the group that Ayer mentioned Die Antwoord often on set. When the group’s rapper Ninja supposedly attempted to speak with the film’s director about the situation, Ayer “said nothin like a scared lil bitch.”
