The Linda Lindas Follow Up ‘Racist, Sexist Boy’ With New Song ‘Oh!’

“Racist, Sexist Boy” rockers The Linda Lindas followed up their viral hit Wednesday (July 21) with the release of “Oh!,” with a colorful music video to match.

Written socially distanced and outdoors during the pandemic, the new track “deals with trying to help out someone and having it blow up in your face,” says the young band, whose members include Bela Salazar (16), Eloise Wong (13), Lucia de la Garza (14) and Mila de la Garza (10). Directed by Ryan Baxley, the accompanying visual brings the high-energy song to life with clips of animated Polaroids and the members dressed in contrasting colors and patterns.

The single comes after the success of “Racist, Sexist Boy,” which found a viral audience thanks to its unapologetic message on racism and sexism. Performed live at the LA Public Library during this year’s AAPI Heritage Month in May, the song was inspired by a racist comment from school.

“A little while before we went into lockdown, a boy in my class went up to me and said that his dad told him to stay away from Chinese people. After I told him that I was Chinese, he backed away from me. Eloise and I wrote this song based on that experience,” said Mila de la Garza, the band’s pre-teen drummer.

The band was soon signed to  on May 27 following rave reviews from both fans and rock stars, including Paramore’s Hayley Williams and Rage Against the Machine’s  

The Los Angeles-based punk band has been gaining momentum this year with prominent features in Netflix projects, such as Amy Poehler’s movie Moxie and The Baby-Sitters Club-inspired documentary The Claudia Kishi ClubTheir newest track “Oh!” was featured in a trailer for The Chair, an upcoming Netflix series starring Sandra Oh.

Dionne Warwick Slams Jeff Bezos for Thanking Amazon Workers & Customers for Paying for His Space Flight

Dionne Warwick Slams Jeff Bezos for Thanking Amazon Workers & Customers for Paying for His Space Flight

After Jeff Bezos blasted off to space on Tuesday, Dionne Warwick put the billionaire on blast for thanking his Amazon employees and customers for paying for his flight.

The tech giant and richest person in the world, who stepped down from his role as CEO of Amazon after 25 years and transitioned into the executive chair position, went aboard his own aerospace manufacturer Blue Origin’s New Shepard spacecraft for its first human flight on Tuesday. Warwick caught one of his rather tone-deaf remarks from the press conference following his space mission about his wealth we’ve contributed to via any purchase of any Amazon product.

“I also want to thank every Amazon employee and every Amazon customer because you guys paid for all of this,” said Bezos, who’s worth more than $200 billion  and whose company’s workers have earned notoriously low wages and unfair treatment.

Warwick was not a fan of his comment and shared her disdain for it on Twitter. “Why did he make a truly dumb statement like this? I don’t get what he expected from those employed at Amazon! I know it couldn’t have been a YAY!! Shame on you, Mr. Bezos…,” she wrote while adding the clown emoji to her tweet.

Read Warwick’s clapback at Bezos below.
