A French rapper, Nick Conrad, whose controversial “Hang Whites” video was pulled down from YouTube has spoken out following a huge backlash.

The video by the artiste had over a thousand views before being taken down by the streaming platform for “violating policy on hate speech”, with the previously little-known artist becoming the top trending topic on Twitter in France on Wednesday.

In one scene from the video, the rapper and an associate dragged a white victim along a pavement, kicking him in the head. The lyrics of the song included calls to kill white people and their children, with a chorus which says “hang the whites”.

Defending his work of art in an interview with French tabloid, Le Parisien, Conrad said the video was all fiction and that he only “wanted to reverse the roles of the white man and the black man”.
