Yes, thanks to Verizon, you can download the explicit version of such classic Akon hits as “Bananza:”

Hey ladies drop it down

Is Verizon Wireless out of its mind? As we reported at Hot Air yesterday, Akon is in deep doo-doo in Trinidad over his vulgar sexual molestation of a 15-year-old girl during one of his trademark “performances.” The incident is being investigated by police authorities in Trinidad and the country’s prime minister has condemned the performer and his posse. I suggest Verizon Wireless executives watch the video, which was a hot topic on The Laura Ingraham radio show this morning:

Will Hillary apply her “Rutgers Pledge” to Verizon Wireless?

Where’s Obama?

Will Al Sharpton name names and target Akon in his march against hip-hop today?

***

Verizon is just one of Akon’s many corporate enablers. As I note in the Hot Air report, Akon appeared on Fox’s American Idol recently and he’s currently on tour with Gwen Stefani. It’s the decision by Verizon Wireless to market his explicit lyrics and songs–and quotes like this one from a top Verizon Wireless exec–that put the company at the top of the pressure list:

“Akon has emerged as one of the world’s most compelling and exciting stars,” stated Vice President of Marketing and New Media for Verizon, John Harrobin. “His commitment to his artistry and the community enables us to take our partnership with music industry innovators in yet another direction by collaborating on this unique TV advertising campaign.”

“Artistry?!”

Are you a Verizon Wireless customer wondering why the company is promoting vulgar, misoygnist trash? The customer relations phone number is 1-800-483-7988. [Update: that’s the land service. The right number is 866-673-9561.] Ask the company to do the right thing.
