The critics condescendingly write of those who take the lyrics literally. And we all know that music doesn't make anyone pick up a gun, knife, fist and go out and do acts of violence or stupidity.
Meanwhile, in Juárez, a culture of Sexism, corporate greed, and drug trafficking make Juárez a deadly town for Mexico's women. The same critics are silent as to why factors that lead to violence against women in other places are harmless entertainment at at home.

Ladies and Gentlemen, from the Number One Album in America:
Fe Fi Fo Fum
I think I smell the scent of a placenta
I enter central park, it's dark, it's winter in December
I see my target with my car, and park and approach her tender
Young girl by the name of Brenda and I pretend to befriend her
Sit down beside her like a spider, hi there girl you mighta
Heard of me before, see whore you're the kinda girl that I'da
Assault and rape and figure why not try to make your pussy wider
Fuck you with an umbrella then open it up while that shits inside ya
