Star’s controversial music video slammed


Maroon’s 5’s new music video has gained a LOT of attention over the past few days – and it’s not hard to see why.

The video stars Adam Levine as a stalker preying on his real-life wife, Behati Prinsloo, complete with standing outside her home in the rain and chopping meat in a butcher’s…agh!

Not to mention writing around in blood with her…we wonder what bothered people?!

It’s really graphic and creepy and has now been slammed by The Rape, Abuse, Incest National Network in the US who say it is glorifying stalking.

The group says: “Maroon 5’s video for ‘Animals’ is a dangerous depiction of a stalker’s fantasy. And no one should ever confuse the criminal act of stalking with romance. The trivialisation of these serious crimes, like stalking, should have no place in the entertainment industry.”

The video has also been blasted in its depiction of sexual violence against women.
