M.I.A.'s Video Of Ginger Persecution Given 18 Age RatingM.I.A. whose Clash-inspired track Paper Planes featured heavily in the Slumdog Millionaire soundtrack has a new track out and a video that has been getting a few people hot under the collar. The video for Born Free features the US army kidnapping some ginger haired kids and brutally attacking and mutilating them.

The extreme video is nine-minutes in duration, one of the graphic scenes features a child being shot through the head and a man being blown apart in an explosion. The video was initially available to be seen by anyone on the video-sharing site, but has now been given an 18-plus age restriction.

Mercury Music Prize-nominated M.I.A.'s initial response to this was to post a series of ranting messages on Twitter, initially claiming that her US record company had pulled the video from YouTube. Shortly afterwards she backtracked and said the firm was not to blame. The video can still be viewed at her YouTube channel, as well as on her own website.
