Mexican Rock Band Molotov Drops Anti-Gay Slur

In a separate posting, Molotov defended their song on Facebook.

“Our music gives a voice to the people who aren’t in a position to do so for themselves and often times we sing about things that some governments don’t want you to see or hear. It is in this context that we composed the song “Puto,” the band wrote. “It was conceived as a cathartic song about our situation in Mexico at the time in the late ‘90’s and dedicated to anyone who attempts our freedom, to any coward who attempts against the people and to anyone who attempts against humanity.”

The band added that the song was “never meant to disrespect the gay community.”
