It’s been over four months since Donald Trump was elected president and all chaos has erupted, and Empire star Jussie Smollett has a lot on his mind. So much that he's packed it all into a three minute and forty-five second music video for a song called “F.U.W.” which stands for “F*cked Up World.”
He touches base on a ton of the recent issues (and issues that have been going on for DECADES) and literally every group you can think of is represented in this video. Black, white, Muslim, Trans, Women, Native American..like when I say he left almost nothing out, I mean he left almost nothing out.
Even notice the use “cash me outside, how bou dah” in the lyrics, a truly third-eye-opening use of the phrase.
Here’s a list of concepts and things he addresses in the video, which he directed himself, by the way. Jussie's here to help y'all open that third eye!
Police killings of black citizens
Refugees and how they are welcome
Women’s bodies and rights
(Smollett explained the mask stands for “this false idea of patriotism” and “this idea of white privilege.”)
Smushing apple pie over the American flag
Crushing Donald Trump under a wheelchair
Trans rights and bathroom bills
Standing Rock and Flint
Power for people with disabilities
He also even mentions this wall Trump is trying to build with the lyrics "Build a wall, it won't keep us from loving eachother."
This video is so woke we don't even know what we're supposed to do with ourselves right now...
Watch Jussie Smollett's new video "F.U.W." above!
