A French politician used ‘N****s in Paris’ in a video?

There’s nothing more embarrassing than an old, out of touch white guy trying to co-opt rap culture in order to make themselves seem ‘hip with it’. Except for when you accidentally walk out of the bathroom with your fly undone and your dick hanging out. That’s way worse. Anyway, French presidential candidate François Hollande decided to create a campaign video to show how close he is to the common man, and he did so by using Kanye West and Jay-Z‘s hit song, N****s in Paris. Just putting this out there, but if you can’t write the title of a song without the use of four asterisks, DON’T USE THE SONG. Yes, it’s a kick-ass track, but still, super inappropriate especially in the hypersensitive world of politics.
