Jussie Smollett Fires Shots At Donald Trump in ‘F.U.W.’ [WATCH]
"F.U.W." is an acronym for "F*ck Up World," and addresses the controversy that's arisen since Trump took over the White House. In the new visuals released by Smollett, we see different injustices around the country towards ethnicities and religions, as well as the LGBT community, being represented through the black and white images. The singer described the record's meaning with the Associated Press.
"This song is for the oppressed," he said. "That’s why I feel like people will connect with it because it is very broad, because oppression is so broad."
There's another particularly powerful scene in the video, which features a man in a wheelchair running over a mask of Trump.
"That mask is a representation of this false idea of patriotism," Smollett explained. "And that mask is a representation of this idea of white male privilege. It’s so much bigger than him. It’s what he represents, and it’s because of that representation, that’s why he’s the president of the United States currently.”
