Rapper Young Vito is in hot water following the release of his controversial song "AWIT".


A post shared by Young Vito (@youngvitoph) on

"Awit" first caught the attention of fans last December when a video of the rap upstart performing the track viral. The chorus goes "May nakilala ako sa bar kagabi/ ang ganda niya pero parang may mali/ Nung dumikit mayroon akong napansin/ napakalupit awit may lawit." The original video has since been taken down and Vito even apologized for it.

After the backlash he received, he signed a record deal with Viva Records and his first release? The same track that put him under fire in the first place.

Some netizens expressed their disgust over the track being released, with a lot of people calling him transphobic. Check out the tweets below:
