The song first went viral in December and immediately caught fire for containing offensive lyrics and transphobic slurs. "May nakilala ako sa bar kagabi. Ang ganda niya, pero parang may mali. Nung dumikit, mayroon akong napansin. Napakalupit, awit may lawit," the chorus goes.

The official studio version of "AWIT" dropped just yesterday, January 17, but was taken down in less than 24 hours on both YouTube and Spotify after the renewed backlash it received.

Young Vito and Viva Records, the label that produced the song, have yet to release an official statement regarding the issue.
