In the original video, which has amassed more than 700,000 views, she fondly remembers growing up with “Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera” on the radio, then recalls hearing “Norf Norf” while driving her kids to school. “I could not believe what I was hearing,” she says. “This was on our local radio station; this crap is being played.”

She reads the uncensored lyrics online, saying, “We wonder why this society is so messed up—listen to the music,” she adds.

In a series of tweets Staples says he thinks it’s clear the woman didn’t understand the context of the song, and that she seemed emotionally unstable, but says she is entitled to her opinion. He even defended her, writing that “No person needs to be attacked for their opinion on what they see to be appropriate for their children.”
