More than a million people have watched her melt down.
In a YouTube video that went viral this week a Christian mom cries about hearing the lyrics to the rap song “Norf Norf” on the radio with her daughter.
The woman breaks down in tears as she recites the lyrics to the profanity-laced song, many of which reference violence and sex.
“I couldn’t even believe the words as I was listening to … as a mom, it infuriated me,” she says in the 11-minute video.

Through her tears she complains that “this is what our youth is being subjected to.”
“Norf Norf” is the hit single off West Coast rapper Vince Staples’ acclaimed “Summertime ’06” album last year. His fans, and headlines about the woman’s meltdown, largely mocked her.
But when Britain’s The Independent asked Staples about it, he said it’s not right for people to “attack someone over their stance, their opinions, and their religion. I think that’s very immature.
“We already have a lot of issues between black and white relations in this country based on misunderstandings. In my eyes, she doesn’t look like a racist. She doesn’t look like a mean person. It’s not very responsible for people to try to take that and jump, looking for some sort of commentary on these issues. It’s just not right that’s she’s being attacked. It’s not OK.”
He went on Twitter later to clarify what he said, adding that the woman in the video “is clearly confused on the context of the song which causes her to be frightened.”
