British-Tamil musician M.I.A.'s video for her new song "Borders", which
expresses solidarity with refugees seeking to flee to safety, has caused
controversy. French football team Paris Saint-Germain has requested the
video, which the artist directed herself (seen above), be taken offline
because M.I.A. is seen in the video wearing a modified version of the
club's shirt.
