Controversies – Pitbull

  • In 2011, Pitbull was sued by Lindsay Lohan for using her name in his song “Give Me Everything”, where he rapped, “I got it locked up like Lindsay Lohan”. Lohan claimed that the line was defamatory and caused her emotional distress. Pitbull defended himself by saying that he meant no harm and that he was a fan of Lohan. The case was eventually dismissed by a judge, who ruled that the song was protected by the First Amendment.
  • In 2012, Pitbull was involved in a prank by Walmart and Energy Sheets, a brand of caffeine-infused dissolvable strips. The prank was called the “Exile Pitbull” campaign, where fans were asked to vote for the most remote Walmart store in the US, where Pitbull would perform a concert. The campaign went viral, and the winner was a store in Kodiak, Alaska, a small island with a population of about 6,000. Pitbull accepted the challenge and flew to Kodiak, where he performed for the locals and met with the mayor. He also invited the prankster, a writer named David Thorpe, to join him, but Thorpe declined.
  • In 2013, Pitbull sparked controversy when he performed at the opening ceremony of the Indian Premier League, a cricket tournament, in Kolkata, India. He was criticized by some Indian fans and media for his inappropriate lyrics, his lack of respect for the Indian culture, and his poor lip-syncing.

  • In 2014, Pitbull angered some Venezuelans when he performed at the Premios Juventud, a Latin music awards show, in Miami, Florida. He wore a shirt that said “SOS Venezuela”, a slogan that was used by the opposition protesters who were demanding political and social changes in the country. He also dedicated his performance to the Venezuelan people, saying, “Freedom for Venezuela”. Some Venezuelans praised Pitbull for his solidarity, while others accused him of being ignorant and biased.
  • In 2015, Pitbull faced backlash when he released his song “Fun”, featuring Chris Brown, as a single from his album Globalization. The song was criticized for its lyrics, which glorified drug use, violence, and sex tourism in Colombia. Some Colombians felt that the song was offensive and stereotypical, and that it damaged the image of their country. Pitbull defended his song, saying that it was meant to be a tribute to the Colombian culture and that he had a lot of respect and love for the country.
