The Raymi Paulus-directed video features the Colombian rapper walking two Black women on leashes, and their faces are made to look like dogs.

Tokischa, a Black woman, poses on all fours inside a doghouse in the clip as well.

The video was taken down on Sunday (October 17), although the reason was not made public. Only a reaction video remains on YouTube at this time.

In a joint statement last week, via LA Times, Colombian Vice President Marta Lucía Ramírez and Presidential Counselor for Women’s Equality Gheidy Gallo Santos said that the rapper “uses images of women and people of African descent — a population group with special constitutional protection — to whom he presents with dog ears. In addition, while walking, the singer carries two Afro-descendant women tied with neck chains and crawling on the floor like animals or slaves.”

J Balvin recently made headlines after another star compared his music to a hotdog cart.
