If you haven't already seen it, a concerned Christian mother recently recorded an 11-minute clip detailing how offended she was after hearing Vince Staples' "Norf Norf" on the radio.

She goes as far as to recite the song's lyrics (yes, all the words) and was particularly shocked that such a song was playing on her local station.

Since the rant went viral, Vince Staples fans have been waiting for his response, presumably expecting the same sardonic humor he's shown in his music. Perhaps surprisingly, Staples took to Twitter to deflate the trolls and push for more understanding.
