Blurred-lines

Robin Thicke’s controversial chart-topping hit Blurred Lines has become the first song in the 113-year history of Queen’s University Belfast’s Students’ Union to be banned.

The student representative council set a new precedent when it voted by 26-22 in favour of a motion to ban the song from being played in the union, in an effort to promote a safe space for students, as enshrined in its constitution.

The successful motion to ban the song at QUBSU was proposed by vice president of equality and diversity, Caoimhe MacNeill.

Caoimhe said there were no Blurred Lines when it comes to consent and that the language used in the song can be interpreted as rape apologetics.
