In the last few weeks, fife has become an increasingly popular instrument to perform in venues, thanks in large part to the rise of online dance music.
Now, a fife video has found its way to the Internet, featuring a young woman dancing to a tune called “Totally Inappropriate” (titled after the video’s title).
The video was posted to the music site Beatport on February 3.
While the clip has been viewed more than 2.4 million times, many commenters have commented that the clip is “offensive” and “disturbing,” and that the song is “too dark and too heavy for people of any age.”
“Truly, this is disturbing and distressing,” wrote one user on Facebook.
“It should be banned.
It should not be allowed to be performed in the public square.””
I am ashamed to admit this,” another wrote, adding that the “toxic” song is not meant to be sung by young people.
“This is not a song that you sing to a friend.
This is a song for a young person to sing at a party.
It’s an act of defiance against the system that is telling them to take their own lives.”
The video, which has been widely shared on YouTube, has been shared more than 12,000 times and shared more, and now has more than 1.6 million views.
However, the video has also been seen by many people who find the song offensive.
“If you’re into fife and you want to show your support for young people, it’s important to be aware of what you’re doing and not let that turn you off,” wrote user Kari Smith.
“There’s something wrong when you see a young girl singing a song about killing someone, but not a fiddle player or even a violinist.”
“The music video is not about killing people, but rather, encouraging young people to express their feelings, especially through their music,” said one commenter.
“They should be celebrating fife’s diversity, not using it for cheap and disgusting entertainment.”
In a response to the criticism, Beatport posted an apology.
“In an effort to make our community a better place for everyone, we have made an unfortunate video and made a mistake,” the video read.
“We sincerely apologize for this.
We are currently in the process of taking down the video and have removed the original clip from YouTube.
The original video has been removed and we are actively reviewing the situation.””
In the future we will be more careful about what we post,” it continued.
“However, we are committed to helping young people find their place in the world, and we hope this video can be a lesson to young people.”
A number of fife artists have also weighed in, criticizing the song.
The band Fife the Band posted a video titled “The Tipping Point” in which singer Jules Jarreau says that the video is “a disgrace to our fife.”
The band also posted a short video about fife on Instagram that included the song, but the video quickly went viral.
“This video has no place in our music.
I don’t care what your age, you can be anywhere in the fife world,” the group captioned the video.
“As long as you don’t mind the darkness, we’ll sing your fife song.”
The fife band also released a short version of “Trying to Take Your Own Life” that was also shared more widely.
“Truer words have never been spoken.
I have a problem with this,” Jarreu sings in the song as he dances around the dance floor.
“I want to try to take my own life and I’m doing this because I’m angry and I want to stop.
If you can imagine that, I can.”
Beatport also said that the group was reviewing the video to determine whether it should be removed.
